If fans of survival horror weren’t upset enough when the Guillermo Del Toro, Hideo Kojima and Norman Reedus project Silent Hills was cancelled late last year, it’s now been confirmed that the spiritual successor to that game, Allison Road, has now also been binned.
The PT-inspired first-person horror game Allison Road started out on Kickstarter and found massive success before the funding campaign actually being stopped in favour of a deal with publisher Team17.
“Working with Team17 will give us the chance to make our game unhindered creatively, but at the same time will give us the resources, support and experience that only a 25 year old studio can give,”
However, last night the official Allison Road twitter account posted this tweet:
“Hi all. Sadly Allison Road had to be cancelled. Statement to come in the next few days. Thx for all your support and very sad it came 2 this”

Details are scarce thus far as to why exactly the game was canned. For all we know, it could have been a funding issue or even perhaps legal trouble for the likeness to the PT demo and the cancelled Silent Hills game. However, that’s just speculation on our part. As and when the details are revealed, we’ll bring that news to you here on ThisGenGaming.
