Silent Hill 2 remake confirmed as a PlayStation 5 exclusive

Unlike its fellow remake of a classic survival horror game, Bloober Team's take on Silent Hill 2 will be exclusive to the PS5.


Someone sure has earned the right to gloat.

It's safe to say that the fan expectations for Silent Hill 2 will be high.

After Bloober Team and Konami teamed up last year, fans were certain that the studio that worked on Layers of Fear had been tapped to lead development on a Silent Hill game. But, the Polish horror game developer denied the rumors, which killed some of the hype. Even so, several fans remained steadfast in their belief.

Now, ardent Silent Hill fans will receive their rewards.

Konami confirmed in its recent Silent Hill showcase that Bloober Team is indeed working on a remake of Silent Hill 2.

Bloober Team worked on two of the best horror games to launch in recent memory: Layers of Fear and The Medium. It's one of the best studios fit to work on a Silent Hill remake outside of Konami and Capcom. Bloober Team will rebuild Silent Hill 2 from the ground up for the PS5 (and PC, later on). But, don't worry, Bloober Team isn't alone - the OG Silent Hill composer, Akira Yamaoka, and artist, Masahiro Ito, are on board and working closely to bring Pyramid Head and co back to life in 4K.

Remaking arguably the most beloved survival horror game of all time is a bold move but Bloober Team should be up to the task.

It's been a decade since Konami visited Silent Hill with Downpour and Book of Memories, which launched exclusively on the PS Vita. Konami attempted to reboot the franchise with Hideo Kojima and PT but it never materialized outside of a teaser. Despite the fact that it was far from a complete game, PT was more than enough to spark interest in the survival horror series.

An entire console generation later and a Silent Hill 2 remake, among others, is coming.

In an ideal world, the Silent Hill 2 remake will bookend a stacked lineup next year that will include Resident Evil 4 remake on March 24. But, we'll have to wait and watch out for more announcements from Bloober Team and Konami to know when we'll revisit Silent Hill.

The Silent Hill 2 remake will be a timed-exclusive for the PS5 when it comes out.

In other news, Bloober Team is working on a TV adaptation of The Medium. Finally, survival horror fans can look forward to another spooky showcase, this time for Resident Evil, same time tomorrow.
