Since finding out that Hideo Kojima and Konami are going to part ways when Metal Gear Solid 5 is out, a lot of gamers have been asking the question of what is going to happen to Silent Hills, the next installment in the long needing a new game in the horror franchise. Well it seems that maybe our fears of the game being cancelled might be coming a reality as P.T. (Playable Trailer) which, when you finished the ‘Trailer’, revealed that Silent Hills is coming soon. Is being removed from the PlayStation Store this week.
This was announced by Konami themselves, which was spotted by an eagle-eyed Metal Gear fan, with the post saying that “The distribution period of “P.T. (Playable Teaser)” on PlayStation Store will expire on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.”
Now we might be looking into this a bit too much, it be that the trailer was planned to be took down. P.T. was revealed at Gamescom back in September last year. But it does leave a lot of questions since last month, Konami removed Hideo Kojima’s name and Kojima Productions’ logo from its Metal Gear Solid websites, Twitter accounts and marketing materials, leading to reports that Kojima was leaving the company. Kojima Productions’ logo was also removed from the P.T./Silent Hills website.
In a statement following the removal of Kojima Productions branding, Kojima said he is “100 percent involved and will continue working on Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain,” which is scheduled to release on 1st September. Kojima did not comment on his ongoing involvement with Silent Hills.
