Silent Hill 2

Having received a letter from his deceased wife,
James heads to where they shared so many memories,
in the hope of seeing her one more time: Silent Hill.
There, by the lake, he finds a woman eerily similar to her...

"My name...is Maria," the woman smiles. Her face, her voice... She's just like her.

Silent Hill 2 remake finally announced as a PS5 exclusive

After years of rumors and speculation, Konami has officially announced the remake of Silent Hill 2, confirming the studio behind the project as well as the fact that the game will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Konami kicked off its Silent Hill event with the blockbuster announcement, showcasing footage from the Silent Hill 2 remake while providing developers with a preview of what the project will entail.

The Silent Hill 2 Remake is being developed by Bloober Team, a studio known for games like Layers of Fear and The Medium The medium itself had a lot in common with the classic Silent Hill games, so it looks like the Silent Hill Remake 2 is probably in good hands. Original artist Masahiro Ito and original composer Akira Yamaoka are also involved in the development of the game. It looks like Silent Hill 2 remake will be faithful to the original game, but with updated graphics and significant changes to help it meet modern standards, like moving to a shoulder-mounted camera and using motion capture for animations.

The Silent Hill 2 Remake trailer shows protagonist James Sunderland exploring the spooky town of Silent Hill. Silent Hill fans also get a glimpse of what some of the game's iconic creatures look like with updated visuals, like the creepy nurses and of course, Pyramid Head. No release date has been given, but fans can expect the Silent Hill 2 remake to be the first outing in Konami's attempt to revitalize the long-dormant horror franchise.

Those who have been following Silent Hill 2 leaks and rumors won't be surprised by much of this information. It has long been rumored that Akira Yamaoka was composing music for a remake of Silent Hill 2, and that the game was in development by Bloober Team. However, it seems that not all the information leaked was correct. For example, it was leaked that the Silent Hill 2 remake would be an episodic game, and while that could certainly still be the case, it wasn't announced at the event.

It was also leaked a while ago that the Silent Hill 2 remake would be a PS5 console exclusive, so there are no surprises there, but some players on other platforms may still be disappointed anyway. Also note that Silent Hill 2 Remake is not the only Konami announcement that also unveiled Silent Hill F during its Showcase.
