Bloober Team, the studio behind the highly anticipated Silent Hill 2 Remake, has admitted the team is feeling ‘high pressure’ to deliver the goods on its modern overhaul of the psychological horror classic for PS5.
Speaking with DreadXP, Anna Jasinska, Chief Marketing Officer for Bloober Team, revealed that it was chosen to helm the remake ahead of a number of other studios, something which it felt “ecstatic” and “thunderstruck” when they were given the green light by Konami.
Of course, we weren’t the only contenders. Many other studios were vying for cooperation as well, but in the end, our concept was the one that stole Konami’s heart. They recognized our commitment and passion for horror, and that alone was an enormous distinction for us.
Our company was thunderstruck when we received this ecstatic information because many of Bloober Team’s employees are die-hard fans of the title.
As for apprehension, yes, the pressure is high since we’re dealing with one of the best psychological horror games ever made. We want to stick close to the original, and we will put it in the spotlight for years to come.
Silent Hill 2 Remake has yet to attract a release date and is currently in production for PC and PS5.
Bloober Team previously explained how it aims to improve the original game with state-of-the-art technology, which will see creatures and characters alike overhauled significantly in terms of visual presentation.
