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