Silent Hill 2 Remake’s Marketing To Start Soon

According to the CEO of the studio developing the game, Konami will soon start promoting the game.


Piotr Babieno, the CEO of Bloober Team, gave an interview about Silent Hill 2 Remake to the Polish publication The big surprise was both that Konami would move forward with the IP in general after Silent Hills failed (and so Hideo Kojima left the Japanese company, taking Norman Reedus with him so that Death Stranding could be made; Guillermo Del Toro was left with nothing), and that they would start the modernization not with the FIRST part of the franchise, but with the second. (Metal Gear Solid Delta is also odd because the THIRD MGS is getting a remake).

According to Babieno, marketing for the Silent Hill 2 remake will begin soon. Konami took it upon themselves to do this because the Japanese still own the IP, so development was a priority for Bloober. The marketing start is justified, because a few days ago Sony released a video showing their 2024 games. Among them was the Silent Hill 2 remake. Babieno even talked about Project C. This is being developed in partnership with Take-Two (or their Private Division arm) and we’ll hear more details about it in the first half of the year. There’s more news coming from the Polish team, so they could still have a few surprises in store for 2024. We recently heard that the Bloober team has reassigned developers to other projects, so Silent Hill 2 Remake could be in the fine-tuning, bug-fixing phase and doesn’t need the full staff.

Silent Hill 2 Remake also doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s coming to PlayStation 5 and PC. It will probably be released on PS5 first, and we can expect the PC version after the timed exclusivity expires. If we had to guess, we’d put the release sometime in the fall. The question is whether the remake can live up to the original. We think not.
