With the tragic news of Silent Hills cancellation and the subsequent controversy surrounding Hideo Kojima and his name’s removal from most of the Metal Gear Solid titles, many fans became disheartened, giving their hopes up that this magnificent duo would ever come together again to create a masterpiece. Today however, fans can once again rejoice, as Del Toro announced that their collaboration had not come to an end.
In an interview with IGN, Del Toro spoke about how both creators have stayed in touched and continue to brainstorm ideas, “I love working with Kojima-san. We are still in touch. We are still friends and working into doing something together, but that’s not going to be [Silent Hills].”
Del Toro also went on to discuss what Silent Hills could have been, despite the title being early in the development process:
“We were in the planning stages, and it’s a shame it’s not going to happen. We were talking about really pushing the boundaries of the new consoles, and making the game really mess with your head. One of the great moments in Metal Gear [Solid] was Psycho Mantis. The idea that a game can actually interact with you, and stuff like that.”
This is exciting news, and I can’t wait to see what these geniuses have in store.
