Update: Looks like we should've been concerned. Konami has confirmed the cancellation of the Silent Hills project.
Horror fans might have reason to be concerned.
Many were anticipating the new Silent Hills project, especially after that exceedingly well-received – and decidedly freaky – "P.T."
Unfortunately, the game appears to be in trouble. Konami recently announced that the "P.T." demo would be removed from the PlayStation Store this week and not long after, photojournalist Matt Hackney posted a Guillermo del Toro quote on Twitter :
Now, less than an hour ago, Hackney said he apologized for the confusion this Tweet caused, saying he was just quoting "funny lines" he heard from del Toro at a recent event, which must mean Silent Hills isn't outright canceled, right?
Even so, that Tweet has caused a firestorm of questions, and it doesn't help that "P.T." is disappearing this week. Nor does it help that Kojima and Konami's apparent separation was big news not long ago.
What does all this mean for the future of Silent Hills …?
