Screenshots of what claims to be Silent Hill 2 Remake have been leaked online.
The screenshots are incredibly poor quality but some Silent Hill 2 iconography is visible, including the shuffling nurse enemies of Brookhaven Hospital. The images also seem to show an over-the-shoulder third person perspective of protagonist James Sunderland. Though the character's hair looks different, James' green jacket is clearly visible. The game is supposedly being developed by Layers of Fear studio, Bloober Team.
The screenshots, which have been posted to Twitter by Andrew Marmo, claim to have been leaked as part of an internal pitch by Bloober Team before the project was greenlit. According to ResetEra poster Dusk Golem, the images are apparently "not even CLOSE to the final product."
"I mentioned before Konami was looking for pitches in Summer of 2018, this was one of the pitches that got greenlit," the user continued. "But take it for what it is; a proof of concept no budget demo to pitch a concept."
Bloober Team signed an agreement last year with Silent Hill-owner Konami which allows Bloober to "produce games from existing and new IPs" owned by Konami. The publisher also recently announced that they would be revealing a new entry into a "world-loved" series at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show. Whether or not that entry will be for Silent Hill remains to be seen. The unveiling will take play on Sept. 16, at 3:30 p.m. JST.
