When will the remake of Silent Hill 2 be available? The Konami franchise is indeed returning. One of the main ways that Silent Hill has come back is because Bloober is creating a new version of Silent Hill 2. But what is being changed, what updates are being made, and most importantly, when will it be released?
When Silent Hill 2 launches on the PS5 and Steam PC, legendary horror developer Bloober Team will have the difficult task of updating this genre while retaining everything consumers love. Fans of the series and the horror genre will undoubtedly enjoy witnessing Silent Hill 2, one of the best horror games of all time, updated for the modern age. What is known is listed below.
The date of the remade version of Silent Hill leak
A retail listing for the game that has been leaked indicates that the release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake on PS5 and PC is set for Friday, September 29, 2023. Bloober Team earlier stated that the game was “technically ready” to launch, therefore this release date is completely plausible.
The CEO of Bloober Team, Piotr Babieno, made this declaration through Bankier. Bloober Team clarified on Twitter that although the game was “technically ready,” it would still need time to add the final polish before it could be released later in the year, which calmed the fans’ fears. That long-awaited day might now be September 29.
Most intriguingly, though, the Silent Hill 2 Remake will be released on the same day as the original Silent Hill, which debuted on September 24, 2001. Given that more than 20 years have passed between the original and the remake of this iconic title, this leaked release date undoubtedly carries some significance. We can’t think of a better way to honor this classic game than by giving players the chance to experience it for the first time.
Platforms for Silent Hill 2 remake
On PS5 and PC, the remake of Silent Hill 2 will debut. The game is scheduled to be a PS5 system exclusive for a full year. Therefore, assuming the leaked date is genuine, you shouldn’t anticipate the game to launch on Xbox Series X|S until September 2024 at the earliest.
Furthermore, there is no assurance that it will arrive on Xbox at all after that arrangement expires, as several prior Sony timed exclusives have failed to do so, like Kena Bridge of Spirits.
Nevertheless, we hope Xbox users will have the opportunity to explore the updated survival horror game, as many fans will have joined from the original Xbox release or the Xbox 360 remaster.
The remake trailer for Silent Hill 2
The first Silent Hill 2 remake trailer, which showcases the Bloober Team’s recreation of the game, was unveiled at the Silent Hill Transmission. Masahiro Ito and Akira Yamaoka are back in this game version, which is played from an over-the-shoulder vantage point.
The Bloober team hopes to combine the “old and the new” of the franchise and restore the game’s significance while using Unreal Engine 5. The remake of the game is being directed by Mateusz Lenart, the creative director of The Medium, and it features all-new sound and music.
The release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake is all we currently know. There is still a great deal to learn and travel.
