Konami Removes Kojima Productions Logo from Silent Hills Website
Last year at E3 saw announcement from Konami of the title Silent Hills, the newest installment in the long-running Silent Hill survival-horror franchise. The title was intended to be a collaboration between game designer Hideo Kojima and film director Guillermo del Toro for the PS4, with no less than Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead slated to play the main character.
Now unfortunately, the game may have hit something of a snag, as Konami has removed the Kojima Productions logo from its official website. At present, all that remains is the Fox Engine logo. A similar move was made by Konami to the Metal Gear Solid games and official websites, pointing perhaps at the troubled relationship with Kojima.
Konami explained some of these changes saying, “Konami has switched from a studio-based to a headquarters-based organization, so [Kojima Productions] wouldn’t be listed as a studio anymore. At this time, there are no additional updates to share.“
Last year’s E3 announcement was made via a Playable Teaser in a graphically impressive tech demo that ended with the game’s title. Though there hasn’t been much official word about the state of its progress beyond that, we can only hope that it will continue forward as planned.
