Publisher Konami and developer Bloober Team have announced a remake of Silent Hill 2 for Sony PlayStation 5 and PC (Steam). However, the release date has not been announced.
Here's an overview of the game, via the Steam page:
After receiving a letter from his deceased wife, James travels to the place where they shared many memories, hoping to see her again: Silent Hill. There, by the lake, he finds a woman uncanny like her…
“My name… is Maria,” the woman smiled. Her face, her voice… She was like a wife.
Experience master-class in the psychological survival horror genre — arguably the best in the series — on the latest hardware with chillingly immersive visuals and sound.
And here are some quotes from the staff:
