Silent Hill 2 PS5

A wave of miscommunication appears to have hit Silent Hill 2 studio Bloober Team, as the team has taken to Twitter to rectify some inaccurate reports. While the developer's CEO Piotr Babieno was quoted (via Google Translate) as saying the remake is "technically ready", a new statement out of Bloober Team says this isn't actually the case. It also sought to squash rumours surrounding sales projections of the Silent Hill 2 remake.

The statement says: "It is also not true that we have announced that Silent Hill 2 is ready for release. Regardless of the development stage, all of our activities are focused on obtaining the highest quality for the finished product — the quality that fans of Silent Hill 2 deserve. We are aware that players are waiting for more information about Silent Hill 2. As soon as such information becomes available, we are sure that Konami, the publisher for the game, will share it with fans."

To be fair to Babieno, he did follow his original quote up by saying: "It doesn’t mean that the game is finished, but we are close." He then reflected the above statement by saying marketing of Silent Hill 2 is largely in Konami's hands. Given these recent comments, fans have been hoping for a release later this year. A launch date has never been attached to the PS5 remake since its announcement last year, so it's mostly still speculation for now.

"Thank you for your support and we will continue to do our best to provide high-quality games that give players the best emotional experience possible," Bloober Team concludes. Along with Silent Hill 2, new games in the series include Silent Hill: Townfall and Silent Hill F. Both seem to be further out than the PS5 console exclusive, though, so expect to see James Sunderland seeking out his dead wife before any new projects release.
