Over there cancellation of Silent Hills, which took place in 2015 as a result of a tirade between Konami and Hideo Kojima, still remains an open wound for millions of gamers and fans of the series who saw in the Kojima project an opportunity of a turning point for the entire saga. Even Guillermo del Toro, who, as you recall, helped create the game, remembered the project by sharing Kojima’s tweet with the initials “FK” on social networks, two letters that sound like an unkind message to Konami.
We remind you that as well as the sequel to Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima is currently also working on a new title in development for the Xbox consoles that will make use of Microsoft’s cloud technology. According to recent rumors, it would be a horror.
