Why The Silent Hills Spiritual Successor Allison Road Was Canceled

After so many Silent Hill fans were pumped to see a game that could match the franchise's atmospheric horror, Allison Road, fans were shocked to hear that the spiritual successor was mysteriously and suddenly cancelled. And now, the developer has come forward to explain why.

Developer Lilith Studio finally put out an official statement that read,

Hi all,After a long consideration between Team17 and ourselves, we have reached a mutual agreement to end our collaboration on publishing Allison Road under Team17's Games label.Sometime things pan out differently than expected as game development and publishing have so many layers of complexity... We'd like to especially thank everyone for their support through-out, it has and will always be appreciated!

So it sounds like both the developer and publisher decided this just wasn't going to work. And while it's nice to finally get an official statement from the team, the notice itself is horribly vague. It's possible we might never really know what went wrong with theAllison Road project. But in order to celebrate the project and relish its memory, here's the gameplay trailer again.

It's so painful to watch what could've been, but there's still hope that P.T.'s era is just beginning and that there will be more, similar and equally as horrifying games on the way to fill that void that Allison Road and Silent Hills left behind.
