Konami released a statement outlining the future for the upcoming survival horror game 'Silent Hills':
"Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic Silent Hills project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued,"
Writer and Producer of the movie adaptation of a similar horror video game, 'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark', Guillermo Del Torro also confirmed the cancellation.Del Toro was set to collaborate with Hideo Kojima in directing the title. During a question and answer session at a film festival, Del Toro answered a question about the title by saying:  
 "It's not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart."

Actor of the title's protagonist and well known The Walking Dead cast member, Norman Reedus, also confirmed the cancellation. Reedus linked to an article about the cancellation of 'Silent Hills' via his twitter account. In his tweet Reedus said he's "super bummed" about the cancellation but expressed a hopefulness for the title to return.

Despite Konami's cancellation of 'Silent Hills' and delisting itself from the New York Stock Exchange, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is still safely set for release on September 1st 2015.
