In a statement posted on its official X (formerly Twitter) account, the studio says it “would like to clarify” that development is continuing “smoothly”, in an apparent attempt to reassure fans of the series that the final product will be worth the wait.
“As Bloober Team, we are proud to be a part of Konami‘s plans for the Silent Hill franchise,” the statement reads.
“Alongside our partner, we are diligently working to ensure the Silent Hill 2 remake attains the highest quality.
“On behalf of our development team, we would like to clarify that the production is progressing smoothly and in accordance with our schedule. We understand that many players around the world are eagerly anticipating news about the game, and we appreciate your dedication.
“However, we kindly ask for a bit more patience. Once Konami, as the game’s publisher, shares more information, we are confident that the wait will be worthwhile. Thank you for your understanding and support!”
It’s not clear why Bloober Team has felt the need to post this ‘clarification’, though fans have perhaps been getting anxious because the remake was announced more than a year ago and there’s been no update since.
It may also be a response to the release of Silent Hill: Ascension, the interactive streaming series which launched on October 31 and has struggled to build momentum due to complaints about monetisation, lack of moderation and a generally confusing storyline.
Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno said back in March that development of its Silent Hill 2 remake was “close” to being completed.
“Silent Hill 2 is technically ready,” Babieno said in an interview at the time. “It does not mean that the game is finished, but we are close.
“However, the issue of the release schedule lies with our partners. What the promotion will look like and when the title will debut is not directly in our hands.”
