Silent Hills Cancellation Update: Fan Petition to revive Kojima-Del Toro horror title nearing 75,000 goal; Will this move save the game?
Silent Hills was viewed as one of the most awaited titles in the gaming world this year and supposed to be the newest entry to Konami's Silent Hill series. The game was set to be a big hit with film director Guillermo del Toro collaborating with Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima, and also featuring the image and voice of The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus as the main protagonist.
The news on the cancellation of Silent Hills last week came to light when the P.T. (Playable Teaser was removed from the PlayStation Store and spawned disappointment from fans. Following this appalling report, Fans have created a Change.org petition to the save the now cancelled horror game.
The content of the Change.org petition reads:
"Dear Hideo and Guillermo,
Hearing the cancellation of one of the most anticipated horror games is about the most heartbreaking thing horror fans had to swallow this year.
Since the first sight of the P.T Demo it was instant love, and it burned into the minds of everyone that this had to release at some point.
Although the reasons are not yet announced I am begging you along with countless others: Please continue the Development on Silent Hills, if the issue is money related, we would love to see a Crowdfunding campaign like Kickstarter to ensure you are getting all the financial help there is! We´d love to see it happen at some point and want to thank you for all the great games you have released so far!"
The above note is sent out to Kojima and Del Toro, although, the chance of Silents Hills to be saved has slipped out of their hands surrounding what now looks like turbulent times at Konami whose stocks were reported delisted from the New York Stock Exchange hinting a possible buyout in the near future.
Bloody Disgusting noted that the petition which Yauheni started last week has already accumulated over 71,000 signatures, only a few thousand more to reach the 75,000 goal.
Silent Hills was first introduced at Gamescom 2014 as horror game P.T. and launched as a free PS4 demo on the PlayStation Store with barely no explanation to describe what it was. Kojima talked of the game earlier that he wanted to make Silent Hills crazy scary it will "make you sh*t your pants."
