Norman Redus, the American actor best known for his role as Daryl Dixon in the Walking Dead television series, made his full-length debut with Death Stranding, starring Sam Porter Bridges.  That's why he had a previous project with Hideo Kojima, as some of you may remember. He was the main character of P.T. and it was intended to be included in the full Silent Hills game, and before it was canceled in April 2015.
In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, however, Reedus (who never played PT) said he forgot about Silent Hills quickly after learning about Kojima's Death Stranding, considering this new a "much better" project.
It was completely different. Silent Hills had a backstory and people knew this game, knew what it was all about and what it would look like. When this went away, I was taken aback, but when Hideo described what we were doing next, I completely forgot about it. I was like, thank goodness it doesn't work because it's so much better. This is a completely different thing. I've been with Hideo at the Game Awards, and it's like the Beatles. Older men in their 40s screamed with tears in their eyes as Elvis just walked into the room. I am who this person is? The video I know is a friend of mine. He had dinner at my house, met my girlfriend and my cat. He was always super personal and such a friendly person with an excellent sense of humor. He is great to hang. I really knew little about Hideo's mind. I like the fact that Silent Hills didn't happen to be honest, because I looked at the way it works and the way it thinks, and I'm completely blown away by this guy.
Needless to say, millions of Silent Hill fans will probably pray that they disagree with Reedus, especially since Konami has not done anything noticeable with the IP since the Kojima project was canceled. On the other hand, P.T. created the right amount of clones and spiritual heirs from third-party developers, so there it is.
Death Stranding itself will be released on November 8 for the PlayStation 4, while a PC version is expected at some point in the summer of 2020. In the meantime, you can check out our review round.
