As we head into the season of announcements, with Summer Games Fest set to kick off on June 7th alongside various other publisher events, Konami has announced that it is set to hold its next event later this week. This new event will focus on Silent Hill 2 Remake, which will bring the 2001 classic survival horror game into the modern age, similar to what Capcom has been doing in recent times with its iconic Resident Evil titles.

Konami took to social media to announce that a new Silent Hill Transmission event is set to take place on May 30th at 4 PM PT/7 PM ET/12 AM GMT. This event will give fans new details surrounding the upcoming Silent Hill 2 Remake, as well as various other Silent Hill projects including the new movie.

Silent Hill 2 Remake was first announced in October 2022 and since then there has only been a handful of updates given, but it is expected to be released in late 2024. The game is being developed by Bloober Team, who are best known for the Layers of Fear series, and The Medium, which showcased the power of the next-gen systems by rendering two worlds simultaneously to allow for instant teleportation between them.

Along with the announcement of Silent Hill 2 Remake, Konami also announced the games Silent Hill F, Silent Hill: Townfall, and Silent Hill: Ascension, as well as the film Return to Silent Hill, none of these have yet to be released.

This news comes as the gaming world is also anxiously awaiting an announcement from Capcom regarding the next entry in the Resident Evil series, likely either Resident Evil 9 or Resident Evil 5 Remake, but a recent leak suggests that Code Veronica could be the next title to receive the remake treatment.
