Resident Evil 7 Boss Wasn't Happy With Silent Hills/PT's Cancellation

Love you to death.


During a recent interview with GameSpot, Resident Evil 7 producer Masachika Kawata shared his opinion of Hideo Kojima's playable teaser for the now canceled Silent Hills.

While discussing the stylistic similarities between PT and Resident Evil 7, Kawata stated, "I, of course, played PT, and I thought it was an excellent demonstration or excellent game, if you want to call it that." He continued, adding, "I think it looked really great, and it had so much promise, and I was unfortunately very disappointed that it didn't come to fruition. That was too bad that that happened; I'd just like to share the fact that I really loved it."

Despite expressing admiration for PT, Kawata also emphasized the differences between Kojima's teaser and his own upcoming horror title.

"We were actually creating Resident Evil 7 before PT was announced, so when they announced it, it was kind of like, 'Oh, they're doing first-person too?'" said Kawata. "However, now that we've come this far, we can see that the content of this game is completely different from what the content or the direction that [PT] was moving in."

Fans have already started speculating about connections between the two projects, but Kawata's responses might be enough to silence the rumors. While we'll probably never get to play Silent Hills, Resident Evil 7 comes out in January.
