Lots of people were saddened when Silent Hills’ was cancelled. This has lead many to wonder what would’ve become of the game and what the people who worked on the game’s thoughts were. Well we finally got to hear a reaction from one of the biggest names attached to the game Guillermo del Toro.

Del Toro recently sat down with Bloody Disgusting, he opened up about how he felt regarding the cancellation. Del Toro said…

“It was curious. We had a great experience and had great story sessions with hundreds upon hundreds of designs. Some of the stuff that we were designing for Silent Hills I’ve seen in games that came after, like The Last of Us, which makes me think we were not wrong, we were going in the right direction.

“The thing with Kojima and Silent Hills is that I thought we would do a really remarkable game and really go for the jugular. We were hoping to actually create some sort of panic with some of the devices we were talking about and it is really a shame that it’s not happening. When you ask about how things operate, that makes no sense at all that that game is not happening.”

“Makes no sense at all. That’s the randomness that I was talking about.”
