PS4's P.T., a Teaser for the Next Silent Hill, Being Removed Soon

P.T. will be removed from the PlayStation Store this coming Wednesday, April 29.

201 Comments

P.T., the "playable teaser" for the next Silent Hill game, will be removed from the PlayStation Store this coming Wednesday, April 29. Publisher Konami announced the news in a brief update on the game's site.

"The distribution period of P.T. (Playable Teaser) on PlayStation Store will expire on Wednesday, April 29, 2015," the statement reads.

No Caption Provided

Head to the PlayStation Store here to queue up your free download before it's too late.

Konami did not provide any kind of explanation for why P.T. is being removed, or what it's removal might mean for the future of Silent Hills. The decision to pull the PlayStation 4 game from the PlayStation Store comes amid a reported power struggle between Konami and developer Hideo Kojima.

Last month, Kojima's name was removed from the P.T./Silent Hills website.

Kojima is working on Silent Hills with Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro and The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus. But not much else is known about the project.

Silent Hills was originally revealed at Gamescom 2014 as horror game P.T., which was launched as a free PS4 demo on the PlayStation Store with almost no explanation as to what it was. Kojima later said that he wanted to make Silent Hills so scary that it will "make you sh*t your pants." He even joked at the time that the limited edition for Silent Hills would come with a fresh pair of pants.

If Konami are removing it for the reason I think they're removing it for, it's childish.

Isn't everything these days just a way to get attention. I mean it's either legitimately cancelled or they just did this for media purposes.

Does Konami have any series other than MGS that's pretty noteworthy? Only other ones I can think of right now are Suikoden and Silent Hill, but both of them are pretty much dead...

After a bunch of low quality, outsourced games, they cancel the only one being developed in-house in more than a decade.

I think they outdid Sega in their quest to destroy Sonic because at least Sega has produced some successful Sonic games in the past ten years. Silent Hill has just been straight to DVD Western-made horror with every single release after part four.

I doubt it's being cancelled, but if Kojima isn't working on it I doubt it'll be as good as it should be. We'll see what happens. Hopefully Kojima can get picked up by a publisher with a lot more cash than Konami. Firing Kojima was about the worst move they could possibly make though. Their pride will tear down their company.

@tsunami2311@Vylsith: Exactly, Konami has been on a downward spiral ever since the NES generation ended. Kojima is Konami at this point, and they just killed their company imho. I think Capcom still has a lifeline for a while. Mostly because they've still managed to release some decent games amid their failures. Konami's past that point.

@tsunami2311: How can a product that's been completed and released be canceled? PT is not SH. It's just a teaser that doesn't represent the final SH game.

I wonder if Konami is just removing anything Kojima related? Who knows maybe they have to start from scratch to avoid any legalities between Konami and Kojima. They could still make the game. Question is, without Kojima's involvement, will anyone care?

@bdrtfm: Silent Hill fans have many reasons to care, Kojima was just a bonus. Personally, I was more excited for del Toro's and Reedus' involvement.

I hate to see this whole thing die... well, thanks Konami and thanks Obama.

I heard the full story on this was that Kojima was no longer making Silent Hills and the project had been cancelled all together that's why there taking down the demo. Too bad for silent Hills it looked like it could have been a good game. I feel real sad for Guillermo del Toro this is his second project to get cancelled first Insane and now this. Seems like he really wants to make a horror game but can't get any luck with getting a project off the ground.

Since Silent Hill is one of Konami's biggest franchises they'll almost certainly continue making SH games but with a new dev team.

How could they be so stupid as to ruin a collaboration between two of the greatest minds in their respective fields? This is one of the biggest loses ever for gaming. Twenty years from now people will be talking about The Greatest Games That Never Were and Silent Hills will top the list.

@Marky360: Nobody knows. That's the truth. It could be cancelled. It's possible it's not cancelled. It's possible that Konami is contracting Kojima to work on it still. We just don't know.

Konami is now becoming most hated company in the world. Kojima probably slept with the CEO's wife and he probably got upset and fired him and removed his name from any game associated with Kojima lol. But in doing so, they're going to go bankrupt. I mean think about it...without Kojima, Konami is really nothing.

As much as I hate say it Konami is becoming Capcom. They shelve their respective rpg franchise Breath of Fire and Suikoden. They start milking their major franchise till they become watered down, Metal Gear/Castlevania and Re/SF. And they cancel things people want like MML 3 and now Silent Hills. I really like Konami more so than Capcom, so I hate to see them go this route.

@divinejester: Konami has been worse than Capcom for a long time now. At least Capcom cancels games. Konami actively put out poor quality, outsourced Silent Hill games. Tons of them.

What company, other than Sega, actually sets out to destroy one of their own important brands?

I lost all the remaining respect I had for Konami. I enjoyed Metal Gear and Lords of Shadow but that company has been making one dumb decision after another. I won't be surprised if they will go bankrupt soon.

@parabola15: I won't even care too. I mean what do they have to bring to the table after Kojima leaves? DDR? Another Poor Silent Hill game thats 100 times worse than PT? Yea, I don't see Konami swimming to the shore. They are drowning and Kojima was their life boat.
