The Silent Hill 2 remake will “stay true to the original title,” claims the Bloober Team

Bloober Team’s remake of Silent Hill 2 will “stay true to the original title” while modernizing unaged areas.

That’s what Anna Jasiñaska, Head of Marketing for the Bloober team, says in an interview DreadXP.

When asked how Konami’s studio was given free rein to transform the game with their own vision, Jasiñaska said, “We’re focused on bringing that distinctive, visceral atmosphere back to the modernized Silent Hill 2. Longtime fans shouldn’t worry that we’ll miss the point while we breathe life into the title. We’re staying true to the traditional story canon while reimagining the gameplay and updating the visuals from the ground up.”

“One big visible change is the introduction of an over-the-shoulder camera, which changed the perspective of some iconic set pieces, but also meant an overhaul of the combat system,” she added.

“As you can see, we’re not deviating from the original concept of making this cult classic; we just have some ideas on how to make the specific fear factors more appealing to contemporary audiences.”

Jasiñaska also said that the studio has a “very secure approach to change” but isn’t averse to “making adjustments to certain areas where things need to be modernized due to the passage of time”.

Jasiñaska also explained the process when Konami approached Bloober Team to develop the remake: “…we received an invitation from Konami to attend the Tokyo Games Show. To our delight, Konami asked us to prepare a concept for a remake of the second part of the original game in exchange for the opportunity to bring the concept to life.”

But Bloober Team wasn’t the only studio considered for the project: “Of course we weren’t the only competitors. Many other studios also vied to collaborate, but in the end our concept was the one that stole Konami’s heart. They recognized our dedication and passion for horror and that alone was a tremendous honor for us.”

We don’t have a release date for this remake yet, but we do know it won’t be coming to Xbox consoles. The Silent Hill 2 remake will “stay true to the original title,” claims the Bloober Team
