Sam Barlow, the author of the previous Silent Hill games, fears that the Silent Hill 2 remake per Bloober Team, this cannot be done “without upsetting people”.

Video games.”

The Bloober team said it would take “a very safe approach” for Silent Hill 2 Remake

Speaking to – Game News at GDC 2023, Barlow thinks Silent Hill 2’s remake is a difficult task to complete:

Personally, I’m less enthusiastic about playing a remaster. It’s also like the biggest goblet of poison in video games, doing a remaster of Silent Hill 2. I mean, good luck to them because I don’t know how they can do that without pissing people off.

Silent Hill 2 is definitely a classic that many fans don’t want to see changed in any major way, which is mainly why Bloober Team said in January that they would play it safe for the remaster. At the time, the developer said it wanted to “stay true to the original title”.

That said, Barlow is thrilled that Konami is finally using the Silent Hill brand “as a platform to have a variety of interesting psychological horror games.” In particular, he’s very interested in what developer No Code is up to for Silent Hill Townfall.

In October 2022, Konami also announced Silent Hill f, which is set in 1960s Japan, in addition to the real-time interactive series Silent Hill: Ascension.
