PT, the playable teaser of the cancelled Silent Hills, won't be backwards compatible on the PS5, publisher Konami has confirmed.

Konami stated:
The content will not be available on the PS Store, so users won’t be able to re-download the content through the backwards compatibility feature to the PS5.

The title was removed from the PlayStation Store back in 2015. Those who didn’t download it before then aren’t able to download it now on their PS4.

That said, Konami’s statement doesn’t address those who currently are in possession of the game on PS4 alongside the confirmation that the PS5 will support backwards compatible PS4 games via external HDD.

PT hasn’t been confirmed as backwards compatible nor has it been confirmed as incompatible either, meaning we might have to wait until 12 November to see if it actually plays.

PS5 heads to retail stores on 12 November.
