Silent Hill 2 Remake Internal Demo Pitch Screenshots Leaked
Screenshots from what is allegedly an internal demo pitch for the Silent Hill 2 remake have found their way on the internet.
Twitter user Alej135 shared what appears to be leaked screenshots taken from an early prototype of the Silent Hill 2 remake that was pitched to Konami by none other than Polish developer Bloober Team. Earlier rumors had suggested that the studio was somehow involved with the development of the remake. The tweet has since been deleted, but the screenshots shared by them can be seen in the image below.
Meanwhile, Reset Era member Dusk Golem, who has also shared plenty of inside information regarding in-development titles in the past, claims that the screenshots are real, but they’re not anywhere close to the final product. He said that they were captured from an internal pitch demo from Bloober Team before the project was greenlit. As a result, these screenshots are based on a low budget proof of concept created to get Konami’s approval, and, therefore, can’t be considered a vertical slice.
Golem seemed disappointed to see these screenshots out in the wild, as they aren’t representative of the final game. He reminded that he had mentioned earlier about Konami looking for pitches during the Summer of 2018. These screenshots were taken from one such pitch that got greelit for production. Thus, Silent Hill fans need not be disappointed by the visuals seen in the leaked screenshots, and the final game is likely to look much better.
The 2001 survival horror game Silent Hill 2 was originally developed by Team Silent, a team at Konami Computer Entertainment Tokyo, and it was released by Konami. The game, which was designed for the PlayStation 2, was made available from September to November. James Sunderland, a widower who travels to Silent Hill after learning from a letter from his deceased wife that she is waiting for him there, is the main character of the second entry in the Silent Hill series.
In December of the same year, an extended version for Xbox was released with Born from a Wish, an additional bonus scenario, and other additions. The Xbox port’s bonus material was included in the 2002 Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 2 Greatest Hits versions, which were both re-released. As part of the Silent Hill HD Collection, a remastered high-definition version was made available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012.
