Silent Hill 2 Remake Is Reportedly “100% Bigger” Than The Original

Konami and Bloober Team’s upcoming remake of Silent Hill 2 is reportedly “100% bigger” than the original 2001 survival horror game.

Dusk Golem (aka AestheticGamer), who is known for his sources in the game industry, mentioned on Discord that the Silent Hill 2 remake is “100% bigger” than the original survival horror game, implying that he’s certain the remake will be lengthier and greater in scale/scope.

In addition, Golem stated that he’s heard about the Silent Hill 2 remake’s release date a couple of weeks earlier, but is waiting for the details to be more concrete before he shares anything on this front.

Previously, it was revealed that the development of the Silent Hill 2 remake is almost complete, though a potential release date announcement depends entirely on Konami. Speaking during a recent interview, Bloober Team president Piotr Babieno stated that while development on the Silent Hill 2 remake is technically complete, the decision to announce a release date rests entirely on the publisher, Konami.

According to Babieno, Silent Hill 2 is technically ready. Though, he added that this does not mean the game is finished just yet. The studio is close to achieving that goal, however. Regarding a potential release date, he said that the handling of the game’s promotion and when the game will launch isn’t directly in the studio’s hands. Ultimately, those decisions need to be made by the publisher i.e. Konami.

Regarding a shift in direction for Bloober Team, the studio president stated that the new strategy is an evolution rather than being a revolution from the Bloober 2.0 strategy. He said that the development team is gradually moving away from environmental storytelling in favor of games featuring mechanics that are recognizable to a wider gaming audience. Babieno revealed that the studio is currently working on two major projects, namely Silent Hill 2 with Konami and a new IP tentatively dubbed “Project C” with Private Division (Take-Two Interactive).
