Those that were looking forward to Konami’s Silent Hills just can’t catch a break. Allison Road, a spiritual successor that was in development by London studio Lilith, Ltd., has announced production has ceased.
The news came via the game’s official Twitter account, though information at this time is sparse. The tweet suggests that more information is coming soon.

The game was started with a single developer as a hobby project but blossomed into a larger team. Allison Road was on Kickstarter, with a team of 10 representing experience with a number of popular movies and games.
It was canceled after a short time thanks to a publishing deal with Team17. We’ve reached out to the company for more information on what happened to the project. We’ll update should we receive a response.
After Konami canceled Silent Hills and yanked the P.T. demo from the PlayStation Store, many fans put their hopes in Allison Road. It’s sad that the game won’t be finished, and we’re eager to learn just what happened here.
