Del Toro surprised by Konami's 'scorched earth approach' to P.T., cancellation of Silent Hills

Movie and hopeful game director Guillermo del Toro sounds like he was just as surprised and disappointed as the rest of us about the news of Konami's cancellation of Silent Hills and treatment of the game's demo P.T.

Speaking with IGN recently, del Toro, the director of upcoming film Crimson Peak and former game director on Silent Hills, said he was devastated by the sudden cancellation of Silent Hills and that he would happily sign the petition to bring the game back.

He also expressed some dismay over how abruptly the game was canceled and its demo, P.T., was removed from the PlayStation Store.

"Honestly that's what surprised me," he told IGN. "It was a sort of scorched earth approach. It was not a gentle and ambiguous cancellation."

You can read the full interview over at IGN.

Recently, the newly appointed head of Konami told a Japanese publication that the future of gaming, and to some degree Konami, was mobile games.
