Cliff Bleszinski Turned Down A Chance to Work With Hideo Kojima on Silent Hills

I guess someone didn't want to be a legend in the eyes of those who live on the battlefield.

We all know and love P.T., the demo that showed us just how amazing a Silent Hill game helmed by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro could be. We loved the idea of Silent Hills, starring Norman Reedus. But unfortunately it couldn't come to pass.

Now there's a new development to the story (as there seems to be every few weeks or so lately.) Apparently at one point Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski was approached by Hideo Kojima himself to help work on a Silent Hill game with him, but Bleszinski ended up declining.

His reasoning? "I woulda f**ked up Silent Hill," he responded in a tweet inquiring as to why he'd pass up such an opportunity. He also seemed to prefer working on a new franchise as he's doing now with shooter Lawbreakers as head of Boss Key studio in North Carolina. Additionally, he doesn't like LA. Fair points, I suppose.
