Konami and Bloober Team have confirmed that yes, they are indeed working on a remake of classic survival horror title Silent Hill 2.
It wasn’t the only Silent Hill announcement made during the event either. Konami’s plans also include several new games, a new Silent Hill movie and an interactive project. Let’s dive into the fog.
Silent Hill 2 Remake
The Silent Hill 2 remake was the first thing shown during the event – and we got to see James, the famous bathroom scene and a glimpse of Pyramid Head.
As well as Polish studio Bloober Team, they’ve got Silent Hill veterans on the project in the form of concept artist Masahiro Ito and composer Akira Yamaoka. The lead director will be Mateusz Lenart, who was the creative director on The Medium.
The remake will use an over-the-shoulder view, we’re told – which will be a marked departure from the original’s fixed camera perspective.
No date was given for the release of the game – but it will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive for at least a year. It will, however, also release on Steam.
Silent Hill Townfall
Silent Hill Townfall, meanwhile, will be produced in conjunction with Annapurna Interactive and No Code Studios, with the latter previously having worked on Stories Untold.
Less was revealed about this game outside of the mysterious teaser trailer, but we’re expecting a narrative focused adventure from the BAFTA-winning studio.
Silent Hill F
Silent Hill F meanwhile will be developed by Neobards Entertainment, who curiously previously worked on Resident Evil multiplayer spinoffs like Resident Evil 3: Resistance and the upcoming Resident Evil RE:Verse.
This game will be set in 1960’s Japan, rather than the town of Silent Hill. It’s also written by Ryukishi07, who’s a famed Japanese visual novel writer who specialises in murder mysteries.
Silent Hill Ascension
Silent Hill Ascension was one of the most curious teases – as it appears to be an interactive movie project. Not only that, but it sees JJ Abrams’ Bad Robot’s new games division teaming up with Genvid, DJ2 Entertainment and Dead by Daylight developer Behaviour Interactive.
No release dates were given for any of the projects during the broadcast – except for Silent Hill Ascension which offered up a 2023 window.
Hopefully then, we’ll hear more on these Silent Hill games soon – and we’ll let you know when we do.
