Silent Hills
Kojima Productions
PlayStation 4

Silent Hills is a cancelled Silent Hill game for the PlayStation 4. It was supposed to be developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami. Silent Hills would have been directed by Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro, Junji Ito and starred Norman Reedus.


In September 2012, Konami's president asked Hideo Kojima, producer of Konami's Metal Gear Solid series, to direct the next Silent Hill installment, to which he said he would love to, using the graphic technology known as the Fox Engine.[1] When asked about the project, Kojima stated:

Honestly, I'm kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies, so I’m not confident I can do it. At the same time, there’s a certain type of horror that only people who are scared of can create, so maybe it’s something I can do. That said, I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the FOX Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect.

Masahiro Ito stated that he would be willing to work on another Silent Hill game with Hideo Kojima.[2] Akira Yamaoka said he would be "happy" to compose music as well.[3]


查看独立词条: P.T.

On August 12th, 2014, Sony announced that an interactive teaser called P.T. (which stands for "Playable Teaser") by fake developer "7780s Studio" was made available on the PlayStation Store exclusive to PlayStation 4. Upon completion of P.T., its true identity is revealed to be a teaser of the upcoming Silent Hills.

P.T. begins with an unknown protagonist waking up in a mysterious house which eventually becomes haunted in a first-person gameplay style. The demo showcases the realistic graphics of the Fox Engine. The demo intentionally features no blatant Silent Hill references (aside from "Lisa" written on a wall), as to not prematurely expose the reveal. At the end of the demo, the protagonist wakes up in Silent Hill. Silent Hills will apparently feature a main character voiced by The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus and designed in his likeness.

Kojima revealed that he wants to make Silent Hills be able to "shit your pants", and that the 7780 Studios received its name from the square kilometer area of Shizuoka, a Japanese prefecture which literally translates to "Quiet Hills". Many Japanese people simply refer to the horror game series as Shizuoka.[4]


In March 2015, it was announced that Konami would fire Kojima by the end of the year due to "fallout" and "power struggles". The fate of Silent Hills remained unknown.[5]

Eventually, Guillermo del Toro revealed it was cancelled, causing much fan outcry and disappointment towards Konami. He said, "It makes no fucking sense at all that that game is not happening. Makes no fucking sense at all."[6]

After announcing the cancellation of Silent Hills, Konami removed P.T. from the PS4 store.[7] This prompted former Silent Hills developer Guillermo del Toro to criticize Konami's "scorched earth" approach to removing all traces of P.T. and Silent Hills.[8]


Fans of the Silent Hill series, as well as P.T. and survival horror fans, started a petition asking for the creation of Silent Hills, which has gained an upwards of 188,000 signatures.[9]

Fans also raised the possibility of creating a Kickstarter based on a new IP similar to Silent Hill, but without the actual Silent Hill name (like "Quiet Mountain" or "Speechless Slope").
