Budding game director Guilermo del Toro is as miffed as us about the cancellation of Silent Hills

Speaking with IGN, movie director Guillermo del Toro, who was also set to direct the upcoming Silent Hills video game from Konami, has expressed his disappointment about Konami’s sudden cancellation of the game. It seems he was just as surprised as us.

del Toro says that he was devastated by the sudden cancellation of Silent Hills as we all were. It was looking to be a true return to horror games we know and loved and had a lot of people excited. del Toro also added that he’d happily also sign the petition to bring the game back.

On the game’s cancellation, he also expressed dismay over the way that it was handled and the way its demo, P.T., was removed from the PlayStation Store for good.

“Norman [Reedus, the Walking Dead actor who was attached to play the lead role] was super happy, Hideo was super happy, and so was I. I know there’s a petition going on the internet and it’s gathering signatures. I would add my signature to it, and hope that someone pays attention.”

“P.T. was downloaded enormously, which shows that people have a passion [for the series]. [Silent Hill] hit me at the right time when I played the first one and the second. It’s a truly great mythology and too great a storytelling arena to let die. It’s too good.”
