Bloober Team, the developer behind The Medium and Layers of Fear, has responded to rumours regarding whether it is currently working on a Silent Hill 2 remake.
Rumours began circulating earlier this week when Jeff Grubb and ‘Nate The Hate’ claimed that a Silent Hill remake is in development alongside a new entry to the series. Although there are no primary sources to confirm this, Grubb reckons that it “lines up with Konami doing a big reveal at E3 last year before it pulled out”.
Is Bloober Team working on Silent Hill 2?
In an exclusive interview with GameByte at the Digital Dragons event in Krakow, Poland, senior members of Bloober Team have responded to the speculation.
“I don’t understand why people don’t know that we do Pro Evolution Soccer. It’s always confused that we need to do Silent Hill or something different,” jokes Jacek Zięba, lead producer at Bloober Team. Wojciech Piejko, a lead designer at the studio, quickly followed up, saying “Yeah, we can’t comment on rumours.”
When asked if a Silent Hill 2 remake would be a dream project for them and something they’d like to work on, Piejko said “I think I am doing it right now [laughter] but I can’t say much about it”. Zięba responded with “I think we’ve done one [dream project] and now we create another one”.
We don’t have official confirmation that a Silent Hill 2 remake is coming from Bloober Team. A full interview with Bloober Team will follow on GameByte shortly.
