It wouldn’t surprise me if Kojima left because no-one got that PT is not Silent Hills despite it literally spelling it out in the demo that it wasn’t a demo of Silent Hills.
The logo has been removed from the PT website, as part of a larger debranding; not sure this is news.
I’m disappointed that it’s looking like Kojima is not going to be directing Silent Hills, and as I have often maintained, no, lending the engine would not be enough and even that seems unlikely. However, put this in the hands of any competent team enthusiastic for Silent Hill and give them enough funding and time to get the job done and you can make great Silent Hill games again.
I just wish that were likely, but they’ll probably just farm it off to a ‘barely okay’ game company again.
I still think it would be interesting to give Climax a go on proper hardware.
