It’s been eight years since PT was released on the PlayStation Store. This digital-only demo acted as a teaser for a new Silent Hills game. However, during a tumultuous time between Hideo Kojima and publisher Konami, the game was canceled and the pair parted ways. A close friend of Kojima, the famous filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, was also involved with the project. In a recent tweet response to Kojima, del Toro made it clear that there was still bad blood between him and Konami.
Guillermo del Toro “F.K.” Twitter response

In a response to Kojima’s tweet celebrating/commiserating PT’s eighth anniversary, Guillermo del Toro posted “F.K.”
Anyone familiar with the very public breaking up of Kojima and Konami will be familiar with the “FKonami” phrase that del Toro is implying here. “FKonami” was a popular trending hashtag during the time of Konami and Kojima falling out.
A quick look at the responses to del Toro’s tweet show the uncensored phrased being hashtagged once again. Clearly some fans still remember the drama.
Those lucky enough to still have PT installed on their PS4 are able to revisit it as often as they like. However, for those who no longer have it downloaded, the game will be forever lost as it’s no longer stored on PlayStation servers (at least not publicly).
Following the cancelation of Silent Hills, Kojima formed his own studio Kojima Productions and created Death Stranding. Despite Guillermo del Toro saying that he’d never get involved in video games again, the filmmaker starred in Death Stranding as Deadman, one of the cast supporting Norman Reedus’ Sam.
