Bloober Team has confirmed speculations concerning the Silent Hill 2 remake release status, faulty translations, and out-of-context statements. This comes after Bloober Team president Pitor Babieno gave an interview with the Polish blog Bankier. Pl last week, apparently indicating that the game was “technically ready.”
The creator of Silent Hill 2 cleared the matter today by posting a statement on Twitter. The developer claimed that although they often avoid addressing rumors, a significant one needed to be put to rest. Several translation errors were present.
As the Bloober Team, we don’t comment on rumors. However, this time we need to take the floor, as some recent statements have been taken out of context, due to inaccurate translations.
Our company’s messages did not contain sales forecasters of specific titles. The figures connected to Silent Hill 2 refer to the potential success of the type of games we will be focusing on in the future.

It is also not true that we have announced that Silent Hill 2 is ready for release. Regardless of the development stage, all of our activities are focused on obtaining the highest quality for the finished product—the quality that fans of Silent Hill 2 deserve.
We are aware that players are waiting for more information about Silent Hill 2. As soon as such information becomes available, we are sure that Konami, the publisher for the game, will share it with fans.
According to the developer, regardless of where it is in the production process, Silent Hill 2 is not yet ready for release. Currently, a polished release is their goal. So when will the game be released, according to the developer? Team Bloober addressed the actual can of worms and didn’t reply to any more tweets.
The first information on the Silent Hill 2 remake came from South Korean ratings. Then in October 2022, following numerous rumors and leaks, we finally received an official statement.
What do you think about Bloober continuing to work on Silent Hill 2 without a firm release date? The end product is what we choose to use over a buggy mess. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below, and check back for future NerdStash updates.
