Silent Hill 2 Remake Coming To PS5, PC
After numerous rumors and leaks, including an early-morning error that exposed the complete roster for today’s showcase, Konami has now formally disclosed their plans for the Silent Hill series.
We learned about a remake, a new film, an interactive live experience, some merchandise, and a brand-new game during today’s showcase, which was advertised as a Livestream but ended up being a 48-minute video. These projects are all set in the Silent Hill universe.
The first news was expected: Bloober Team, the company behind Layers of Fear and, more recently, The Medium, is creating a remake of Silent Hill 2. Although a release date has not yet been announced, it is noteworthy that the game will only be accessible for the first 12 months on PS5 and PC.
Following a lengthy discussion with Gans about his vision for Silent Hill 2, Konami revealed all the cool merch it’s planning to release, including a number of statues of everyone’s favorite triangle helmet wearer—some kind of… pyramid head, if you will—that are undoubtedly going to be outrageously expensive.
Additionally, The Presentation Revealed That Konami Is Developing Two Completely Original Silent Hill Adventures.
With no “reset button,” Silent Hill: Ascension seems to be an interactive, multiplayer visual novel in which players select what transpires and who lives and dies. Although I’m not entirely clear what that means, it appears like Konami was successful in making Until Dawn a multiplayer game. The second game, Silent Hill, received somewhat less attention.
It has been a while since the Silent Hill series received any updates. There hasn’t been a new game in the series since 2012, but with the publication of the hugely successful P.T. demo for the then-untitled Silent Hills project by Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima in 2014, it seemed like the series was about to get a major resuscitation.
Silent Hills was canceled and the P.T. demo was taken down from the PlayStation shop, a mistake that Silent Hill fans still don’t seem to have forgiven, most likely as a result of Kojima’s abrupt departure from Konami. Since that time, Silent Hill has existed in limbo, which seems appropriate when you think about it.
