Silent Hill 2 Trailer Did Not Impress Bloober Team CEO

Silent Hill 2 remake: James Sunderland about to fire a gun at an approaching nurse.

It’s hard to know whether to get excited about the upcoming remaking of Silent Hill 2. The original was such a landmark entry in survival horror, that any modern rendition of it is going to have to pull out all the stops. Maybe with an even mix of modernity and a retention of what made the original so iconic. That said, the new “combat reveal” trailer did not leave a lasting impression on the developer’s own CEO.

In a recent report from Eurogamer Poland (translated by Google), Piotr Babieno, Bloober Team’s president, said the recent teaser shown at the State of Play event “does not reflect the spirit of the game.” He goes on to say that the studio itself is not “responsible for the marketing side” of the remake, and that Konami is the one behind the trailer.

Piotr added:

We try to fully reflect this romantic vision of the game that debuted 22 years ago. We think that when players see real gameplay, a real game, they will evaluate it in a completely different way.

For those who missed it, the new gameplay footage from Silent Hill 2 showcased James Sunderland fighting a series of monsters in a bid to demonstrate the new combat mechanics. It seemed to be trying to reflect the more modern tweaks that have been put into the remake.

If Bloober Team’s CEO is not too pleased with it, it’s going to be tough to get fans excited. While we all know trailers can be misleading, there’s a foreboding sensation in Piotr’s words, but we’ll know more once the game releases.

On that note, we still don’t have a finalized release date. Surely it must be coming out this year, but all we’re seeing on an official capacity is “coming soon.” It’s also not great news for Xbox users, as Silent Hill 2 is coming to PS5 and PC, with no word on whether it will be available on other systems in the future.
