Konami has revived its long-dormant Silent Hill series with a flurry of activity. Also, it seems like an eternity of leaks. Bloober Team is developing the remake of the horror classic Silent Hill 2 for PC and PS5. Hence this remake is a limited console exclusive.
Announcement of Bloober Team Regarding PS5 X Silent Hill 2
Since Bloober Team announced a collaboration with Konami to develop a new game in June of last year, the developer of games, including The Medium, Layers of Fear, and Observer, has been linked to rumours of the return.
Following several leaks earlier this year, rumours that the project would be a remake of Silent Hill 2 started to come together.
However, Konami and Bloober Team have now officially announced the remake. Thus release a 2.5-minute clip during a busy Livestream dedicated to the game.
Hence, we saw some classic Silent Hill 2 scenes and gave it a new-gen graphic makeover. It included a shady makeover for James Sunderland, the game’s protagonist. James Sunderland now resembles Alan Wake’s controversial brother.
Key Members of the Development Team
Konami then brought in a few key members of the new development team. Further, the game goes through the project in more depth after confirmation. The Silent Hill remake will launch simultaneously on PS5 and PC. It leaves out all other consoles due to Sony’s 12-month console exclusivity clause.
Concept artist Masahiro Ito joins Bloober. Masahiro worked as the original Silent Hill 2’s art director and composer, Akira Yamaoka. Akira Yamaoka is back to work on the remake’s soundtrack. It also promises to bring a new musical approach this time.
