Fans of the Silent Hill franchise had to endure years of waiting for the franchise to get picked back up. Fortunately, the wait has ended, and Konami has several projects. We even released a couple into the marketplace, such as Silent Hill The Short Message. But beyond that, there is one major release still in the works that fans are anticipating. I’m referring to Silent Hill 2, a remake of the game that is easily the biggest release for the entire series. But its last showcasing didn’t offer a release date, disappointing fans.
Bloober Team is remaking Silent Hill 2, and the project looks nearly complete. That’s according to a producer for Silent Hill 2, Motoi Okamoto. Thanks to a report from The Gamer, we’re finding out Motoi spoke with Famitsu about the upcoming project. Don’t get too excited here, as we don’t have a release date yet. However, the producer noted that the game is in the final stages of development. If that’s the case, players should be able to get their hands on it this year. But the producer doesn’t offer much more than the fact that this game is in the final stages of development rather than specifically stating what’s being done.
It could be that we’re just dealing with polishing, which will further clear out any bugs or make necessary adjustments to the optimization. Meanwhile, the last showcase for Silent Hill 2 came through the PlayStation State of Play event. That offered some combat footage, which had some players not exactly thrilled about some of the content being showcased. For instance, there was a prompt that showed up that had players rapidly pressing a button to break free from being grabbed by an end. Likewise, there were some stiff animations fans are hopeful to see cleared up.
That could be one of the areas the development team is working on as they try to get this game through the finish line. But again, we’ll have to wait and see if this is the case or not. Currently, Silent Hill 2 is only slated to launch this year, and when it does launch, we’ll see it available for the PC and PlayStation 5 platforms. Meanwhile, if you’re unfamiliar with the game, Silent Hill 2 is a standalone title where players are following a man named James. Upon receiving a letter from his believed deceased wife, James ventures into the town of Silent Hill in search of answers.
