Silent Hill 2 Remake’s Steam Page Seems To Be Brewing A Major Announcement

The new update has fans speculating about its possible release date reveal.

Story Highlights

  • Silent Hill 2 remake’s release date could possibly be revealed soon, as hinted by recent changes on its Steam page.
  • The game’s release date on the Steam page has been updated from “to be announced’ to “coming soon,” which hints towards a new announcement.
  • The rumor further solidifies because of Bloober Team’s recent words, with the developer saying that Silent Hill 2 remake is technically ready.
  • Both Konami and Bloober Team have made no official statement to confirm or deny the rumor. We suggest taking it with a grain of salt.

The release date for the anticipated remake of Silent Hill 2’s could soon be revealed, as hinted by the latest update on the entry’s Steam page. The release date section of the Steam page has been updated from “to be announced” to “coming soon,” which has drawn fans to theorize that the publishers may roll out the official release date announcement in the near future. At least, it is another step closer to the actual release date reveal.

The update seems to be manually added to the Steam page instead of an automatic change, as clarified by a known leaker and horror games enthusiast, AestheticGamer, in the community. In other words, the page was changed by the person handling the Steam page for the upcoming remake of Silent Hill 2. It is a piece of great news because Bloober Team only recently claimed that the game was “technically ready” but not yet finished.

It is worth noting that the new update could be a nothing burger and prove to be a vague change on the Steam page without the actual date. However, the transition likely contains the release date hidden behind it since “coming soon” is often used to cover up the exact release dates on the Steam store for a set amount of time. Another user on Twitter also pointed out a crucial detail hinting at the possible release month.

The user River under AestheticGamer’s thread noticed a change in the store API back in January that edited the Silent Hill 2 remake’s release date to 29 December 2023. Now, the month could be a placeholder for the time, but a 2023 release also appears likely, as teased by Bloober Team on various occasions. However, we suggest taking the news with a grain of salt, as Bloober Team or Konami have made no statements concerning recent changes.

The Silent Hill 2 team has affirmed in the past that the game would faithfully stick to the traditional storytelling. The devs have reportedly asked longtime fans not to worry about them “missing a point” with the anticipated remake as it will perfectly capture the essence of the original. On the other hand, a former Silent Hill series developer is not enthusiastic about playing the upcoming remake of one of the best horror entries to exist.

The Silent Hill franchise has seen a resurgence recently, as multiple Silent Hill projects are being developed. The remake is just the dawn of a new age of Silent Hill, signifying a new revival in the horror genre. For instance, another title, Silent Hill: The Short Message, is in development. It was first disclosed on a Korean rating board. Since then, the game has also received a PlayStation 5 rating in Taiwan. 

Other two projects, namely Silent Hill f and the Silent Hill Sakura, are also in the brewer. Nevertheless, not a lot of info about these projects has been revealed by the respective developers.

Silent Hill 2 remake is set to dock on PC via the Steam Store and PlayStation 5 as a timed exclusive before conceivably arriving on other platforms after a year.
