Bloober Team is reportedly working on a Silent Hill 2 remake, according to Twitter user NateTheHate, who had his post corroborated by respected journalist Jeff Grubb.
According to his post, the Silent Hill 2 remake will feature revamped puzzles, new endings, and could be a timed PlayStation console exclusive. In addition to that, NateTheHate has also heard via sources that there are multiple Silent Hill projects in the pipeline, including a mainline entry in side stories.
This ties in with what we’ve heard in the past, with both VGC and Gematsu hearing that more than one entry in Konami’s psychological horror franchise are in development.
Last week, concept art for what is allegedly a new Silent Hill game was leaked online by Resident Evil tipster Dusk Golem, before hastily being removed due to a copyright claim.
Silent Hill 2 was released for the PS2 in late 2001 and was later ported to the Xbox. The game is widely considered by fans to be the best entry in the series and one of the greatest horror games ever released.
The game was remastered a decade ago as part of the Silent Hill Collection, although it was heavily criticised for its various bugs and glitches.
Silent Hill 2 follows James Sunderland as he travels to the eponymous, foggy town after receiving a letter form his late wife, Mary. The game is largely unrelated to the first Silent Hill, telling its own self-contained story and features the debut of the iconic monster, Pyramid Head.
