When will the Silent Hill 2 remake be released? Yes, Konami’s franchise has returned. Silent Hill has reappeared in a variety of ways, the most notable of which is that Bloober is working on a remake of Silent Hill 2. But, what is new in this new game, what modifications are being made, and, most importantly, when will it be released?
Veteran horror Bloober Team is seeking to break out with Silent Hill 2 when it reaches PS5 and Steam PC, taking on the lofty job of trying to modernize this class while keeping everything gamers loved so much. Silent Hill 2 is one of the best horror games of all time, so seeing it updated for the present era will be a delight for lovers of the series and the genre. Here’s everything we know so far.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Release Date Leak
The Silent Hill 2 remake release date is likely to be Friday, September 29, 2023, due to a premature listing on an Australian gaming website that has since been removed.
Silent Hill 2 Remake might have a release date…
🕯️ 29TH SEPTEMBER 🕯️
Placeholder dates for pre-orders with no release dates are usually the 29/30th Dec (the end of the year).
Other pre orders on their website confirm this.

This would correspond with the game’s original release date, but we recommend taking this release date with a grain of salt because it’s not that far away, and there has yet to be any official confirmation from the Bloober Team… or much of anything, for that matter. Stranger things have happened, especially when Silent Hill is involved.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Platforms
The Silent Hill 2 remake will be released for PS5 and PC. The game will be a PS5 system exclusive for a year. As a result, assuming the rumored date is correct, you shouldn’t anticipate the game to arrive on Xbox Series X|S until September 2024 at the earliest.
And there’s no assurance it’ll even come to Xbox once that deal expires, as some other Sony timed exclusives, such as Kena Bridge of Spirits, haven’t.
Nonetheless, we expect that Xbox users will be able to immerse into the revamped survival horror experience since many fans will have come from the original Xbox release or the Xbox 360 remaster.
Silent Hill 2 Remake Trailer
The first Silent Hill 2 remake trailer, which shows off the Bloober Team’s recreation of the game, was presented at the Silent Hill Transmission. Masahiro Ito and Akira Yamaoka return in this version of the game, which is played from an over-the-shoulder perspective.
Bloober’s goal is to merge the “old and new” of the series and make the game as vital as it was originally, but this time in Unreal Engine 5. Mateusz Lenart, the creative director of The Medium, is the lead director of the game, and the remake features a completely new sound design and music style.
That’s all we know about the release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake. There is still a lot more to see and a long way to go.

Silent Hill 2 Story
According to the game’s description, the Silent Hill 2 plot remains the same for the remake. The game’s official blurb says, in the style of classic Silent Hill in-game texts and replicating the original game:
“Having received a letter from his deceased wife,
James heads to where they shared so many memories,
in the hope of seeing her one more time: Silent Hill.
There, by the lake, he finds a woman eerily similar to her…”
You play as protagonist James, who meets a variety of unusual characters as he travels through Silent Hill’s murky streets and mostly vacant buildings. What exactly is going on in this odd place? What happened to everyone, and who are these strange leg people? We’ll leave it to you to learn all of this and more if you’ve never played the original game.
