There’s A Silent Hill 2 Remake in the Works? Proof of Concept Images Surface Online
For quite some time, we’ve seen some rumors circulating all over the media regarding a revival of the Silent Hill series. These rumors talk about a monumental remake of Silent Hill 2, a game that has been highly acclaimed as a cult classic among Survival Horror fans. Just like all rumors, these were also quite baseless until a juicy set of screenshots appeared on Twitter.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Images Surface on Twitter
The images were first shown by Twitter user @alej135. However, this account has made its tweets private, so we can’t say for sure if they are still there. But the good thing is that the same images were reposted by @the_marmolade… Might be low-resolution, but you get the idea.
The above images show what seems to look like James Sunderland exploring various environments through an over-the-shoulder perspective. You can also see him holding some kind of weapon and appearing to engage in combat against one of the famous Alchemilla Hospital nurses.

Another fact revealed by the Twitter user is the name of the game developer, Bloober Team. Everyone knows their previous involvement with the franchise. About a year ago, the company shook hands with Konami in a strategic partnership to provide content development knowledge. Of course, it was instantly assumed and is probably right, that the main focus of this partnership would be on Silent Hill.
Let’s say that these screenshots are legit. That would mean that the next project by Bloober Team is a Silent Hill 2 remake that will offer quite a different perspective on combat mechanics (that being the over-the-shoulder perspective as opposed to pre-established camera angles in the primary version of Silent Hill 2), along with updated visuals to keep up with this year’s advancements in gaming technology.
As one would expect, all this is mere speculation. Although these screenshots may look pretty convincing, there’s still a high chance they have been tampered with. So as always, we suggest our readers keep a skeptical eye and treat them only as rumors.
