Konami Digital Entertainment, amidst reports of disbandment at Kojima Production, have removed the Kojima Production marketing from the Silent Hills website.
Blimey !! WTH is going on ?? did Kojima punch a producer or something ???
Top Gear reference :D BTW RIP Top Gear... Edit: I hope the game's still coming with the people that did the PT demo
If Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus is involved, I highly doubt they would scrap Silent Hills because of Kojima. Why would they let them go because Kojima is not working on the project. The real "fear" is that Silent Hills gets released and turns out to be a crappy game. That PT demo was Kojima's vision. Let's hope the final game exceeds our expectation.
This better be part of an Aprils fool joke, otherwise i'm about to burst into flames. LEAVE SILENT HILLS ALONE KONAMI!
But if Kojima isn't working on Silent Hills anymore, then who is? The last few SH games haven't been great and Kojima brought in a ray of hope.
Great news actually. Now we know Silent Hills will actually contain gameplay and not just cutscenes. Lol Kojima, he should take a job at Pixar or DreamWorks!! Would also be entertaining to watch the rage if he were to take a job with Microsoft, that would really test peoples loyalty towards Kojima. At the end of the day he's got to do what is best for him, he'll find success anywhere he goes.
@XBLSkull Fanboy comments as usual. You still salty about Kojima preferring PS over Xbox? lol You're just parroting comments you heard some people say about MGS4. But anyone who's played MGS1,2,3,PW and GZ will tell you that those games are NOT nothing but cuteness as you implied.
seriously, WTF happened between them? if this is not an April fool joke, it's terrible news and something big must have happened there. after several decades together, the fallout THIS magnitude in such a short time is unthinkable!
Konami is probably taking it personally that Kojima actually wants to work on things other than Metal Gear....Im sure even with Silent Hills he was more than likely going to have nothing to do with it other than Konami attached his name... He had ZERO to do with Lords of Shadow, yet Konami still felt the need to pretend he was the director on it, even though everyone at Mercury Steam admitted Kojima didn't do much of anything..
This whole thing feels like one big publicity stunt, Kojima has vanished from twitter and nobody is clarifying anything. I expect he'll jump out of an MGS logo'd box at some point. //Or maybe that is just me hoping.
I hope you are right
I pray by all that is good in gaming that you are right.
Its like some of us have said silent hill is dead now no big reboot no pt demo full game. Mgs well after phantom pain the series is done only spinoffs left which i don't care about. Konami can go ahead and become thq/sega all they had left was these 2 series now that they have killed them they too will be sold off or have financial issues like crytek lol.
why do you think that konami is done with MGS? I can't remember a MGS game without Kojima, but the franchise is huge and if konami decides to release MGS 6 with advanced shooting mechanics that caters to all those CoD fans to sell more units, they will do it. Of course, I hope this is not the future of this great franchise.
no they are done with the metal gear solid games after TPP , there will be plenty more in the metal gear universe though.
April April... kojima is good to fool people and allso he's people. If this is true then im stunned
I just hope all this is big April Fools prank from Kojima!!
Why is it shocking that a company that had a brand name based on the name of a now former employee is now changing that brand name?
former employee? no one actually confirmed he quit anything, they are merely masking away his kojima branding. All this information has happened in a short time span which leads me to believe kojima has an ulterior motive for riling up the media. AKA , He's playing you like a damn fiddle.
"no one actually confirmed he quit anything" I guess I wasn't aware of that.
Kojima has wanted to stop making MGS for two games now. He wants this to be the last one in the series. I'm guessing Konami doesn't want him to stop, so they're parting ways. Unfortunately that might me that Kojima isn't involved with silent hills.
More like poor Konami. They're nothing without him.
More like poor Silent Hills.
Lol. Konami thinks they made Kojima, but... Well, let me just say they're gonna need another rockstar quick, fast and in a hurry.
I'm not sure how far back your gaming history goes back but believe me, Konami were SH!T HOT back in the day with MANY games where Kojima was not involved. What they have left in the tank outside of the MGS series though is debateable.
it's a shame to because konami owns alot of good ip's, hopefully they will go out of business now and ip's will be sold..
My hype for this is almost completely gone now. Knowing the game will never be what it couldve been with Kojima.
This is so weird.... After all Kojima has done they do this
as much as i love this franchise and p.t was like a dream come true.. i just cant help but feel disappointed
Yeh, next thing we hear on the netz is Konami won't be using Guillermo del Toro but Uwe Boll
Watch out Lisa! here comes a sucker punch!!
However this is going to play out, Kojima will walk out of this fine. It's konami that should be more worried
While the players are the ones to really suffer.
Especially those who are fans of mgs and silent hill :( but imagine all the new ip kojima can make now :D
Sweet get some fresh blood his games put me to sleep. @below never heard of him .
yes lets get Tetsuya Nomura to design this game :D
My wallet removed from Future Konami Projects post MGS V
Na na na na Na na na na Hey hey hey Goodbye...
That's what I'm saying to your bubbles.
Jokes on you Konami. If Kojima is not working on Silent Hills, I'm out. Tell me this is a lame April fools joke.
Watch this all be a huge aprils fools joke
April fools Kojima-style. I can see it. (but I have my doubts...)
as do I
If it is, I won't even bother playing his games. Hype's gone.
Being a long time fan of MGS since I got exposed to it in MGS PSOne it's painful to hear that kojima is being removed from TPP as if he's nothing.
That's disappointing silent hills won't be the same without him
Suddenly i lost all the hype i had for Silent Hills.
Oh my! If Mr. Kojima really quit making games for Konami, then I'd say that I'm done with konami too.
I was more excited for this than MGSV Unfortunate...
Ok it's April 1st now, that joke needs to stop
Another MG Rising. RIP Silent Hill
Look like is that's it for silleint hill:(
I think Kojima died and they're easing into a public declaration.
why would kojima productions be on anything related to silent hills? first of all we dont even know if kojima productions still exist or if it has been renamed. second of all, kojima is most likely not working on that game anymore, he is currently working for kojima as a contractor and will finish off mgsV. i doubt he would work on silent hills afterwards, if he did then what was the point of seperating? also if he did then kojima productions or his name would not be plastered all over this game because mgsV doesnt even have that.
Today is his favorite day of the year. I am expecting this to be a joke pulled on all of us.
Ahhhh man....this don't sound good! I know he likes to toy with people's mind (just play P.T) so I HOPE this is a joke!
I doubt this is all an elaborate April Fools that started in March and has lasted a month. For one thing Konamis reputation is being heavily tarnished. Gamers are going to turn on them and turn hard. No one is going to take their side on this, theyre trying to erase Kojimas legacy like he never existed at the company. Who does that? What next, release a patch for MSG4 so his name gets taken out of the credits? This will be like a messy divorce and 6 months later you see one partner out and about, has lost weight, has new friends and nice clothes and is enjoying life, while the other is a manic depressant alcoholic on Xanax with no job. I think Kojima will be the bubbly one.
