The Silent Hills/PT website has removed all mentions and logos of Kojima Productions.
Sparking questions about the state of the new Silent Hills game, the Kojima Productions logos have disappeared from the game’s website, as well as that of the Silent Hills PT trailer.
Many of us are wondering whether Hideo Kojima is still involved in the development of the upcoming Silent Hills game.
Originally, the logos appeared on the bottom left corner of the page, but now only the Fox Engine logo remains – as spotted by GameSpot.
The Silent Hills game was in development by Kojima along with Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro and The Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus.
The logo disappearance comes amidst reports of Kojima’s strained relationship with Konami.

“Konami has switched from a studio-based to a headquarters-based organisation, so [Kojima Productions] wouldn’t be listed as a studio anymore,” came the official reply from Konami. “At this time, there are no additional updates to share.”
There are also rumours that Kojima will leave Konami altogether after he finishes development on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
This isn’t the first time that Konami has removed Kojima Productions from game artwork though. It has already done the same for The Phantom Pain and it’s prequel Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.
Silent Hills was announced at GamesCom 2014 in the form of P.T. aka “Playable Trailer”. PT hit the PS4 PlayStation Store with no explanation of what it was.
It wasn’t until gamers got their hands on it that we realised exactly what it was and got super excited (and also terrified).
