A couple of days ago a rumor started circulating claiming that Microsoft was set to offer Konami a lot of money for Silent Hills. Turns out this isn’t true.

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer took to Twitter to say that “this isn’t true.” He added, “Not sure where the rumor started but I don’t want to mislead anyone.”

For those who missed it: Over the weekend, an anonymous source told Rooster Teeth that Silent Hills was 80 percent complete when Konami shelved it, and that Microsoft had offered “billions” of dollars to secure control of the game. According to the source, Microsoft was hoping to complete the deal by E3 where Silent Hills would be reannounced as an Xbox One exclusive. Konami removing the P.T. demo from the PlayStation Store was apparently “a show of good faith to Microsoft.”

Back in April, Konami confirmed that Silent Hills had officially been cancelled. “Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic ‘Silent Hills’ project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued,” the publisher said at the time.
