Leaked images purportedly of a Silent Hill 2 remake by Bloober Team have surfaced online. The images were posted via a tweet by the_marmolade and circulated online. According to Dusk Golem, a notable leaker who previously shared details about another Silent Hill game, this remake was part of an internal pitch demo before the project was greenlit. As such, they do not represent the final product of what the game would look like.
According to DuskGolem, Konami was looking for tracks back in the summer of 2018, which resulted in Bloober Team creating the track.
From the blurry images, it looks like the remake will feature an over-the-shoulder third-person shot of James Sunderland, the protagonist of Silent Hill 2.
In 2021, Konami signed a strategic partnership with Bloober Team, which developed the acclaimed horror games Layers of Fear and The Medium. The deal will see the pair work on “existing games and new IPs.” From that point on, many believed that Konami would revive their Silent Hill series, the last attempt of which was the critically acclaimed PT demo directed by Hideo Kojima, which was ultimately cancelled. Before that, the last main game was Silent Hill: Downpour back in 2012.
With these images attributed to Silent Hill 2, the most popular game in the series, it’s logical to see why Konami would remake this game. Silent Hill 2 was originally developed by Team Silent and published by Konami for PlayStation 2 back in 2001. The game sold one million copies in North America, Japan and Europe during the month of its release. The game was universally praised by fans and critics for its story, atmosphere, and soundtrack. In 2012, a remastered version was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 as part of the Silent Hill HD Collection.
