Silent Hill 2 Remake Platforms Confirmed So Far!

The awaited Silent Hill remake is just around the corner! Though not a lot is known about the game, we were able to confirm the Silent Hill 2 remake platforms.


Silent Hill 2 is arguably the most influential horror game of all time! It redefined the horror genre and introduced a new form of fear – the fear of the unknown. Team Silent, the original creators of the Silent Hill franchise, reshaped the meaning of horror in video games by instilling a form of psychological fear in players. However, ever since Team Silent stepped away from the franchise, there seems to have been a void that’s been left in the psychological horror category of games. Luckily, fans of Silent Hill can rejoice once again as Konami officially announced in 2023 that they are remaking the classic Silent Hill 2! Here’s what we know so far.

Silent Hill 2 Remake Platforms Confirmed Till Now

Originally, Silent Hill 2 was a PlayStation exclusive. And it seems like Sony is hard set on keeping this classic closely tied to its platform. Moreover, from the launch trailer of the game, it was confirmed that the game will be released on the PS5 and PC. However, it is unclear if the game will drop on both platforms simultaneously or will come to the PS5 first and then to PC at a later date.

Will Silent Hill 2 Remake Be on Xbox?

Yes, the Silent Hill 2 remake will eventually make its way to the Xbox. As it stands, the game is a timed- exclusive for the PS5 and PC. Sony has struck up a one-year deal with Konami to keep the iconic horror game an exclusive for PlayStation. After the exclusivity ends, the game will then be eligible to be ported to other consoles, i.e. Xbox. Unfortunately, that means Xbox gamers will not be seeing the title on their platform for quite a few years. 

Silent Hill 2 Remake Release Date

There is no concrete release date for Silent Hill 2 Remake just yet. All we got was a 3-minute trailer from Konami showcasing the horrifying visual spectacle of the game. But all hope is not lost! Interestingly, PlayStation released a highlight reel for the games that will be released in 2024 for the PS5 on Jan 4, and they listed the much awaited Silent Hill 2 Remake there. That means, according to PlayStation, we can expect to see the game this year!

Will the Silent Hill 2 Remake Story and Gameplay Be Changed?

The story of Silent Hill 2 Remake will still follow the footsteps of the iconic James Sunderland. As for the gameplay, the game is speculated to employ an over-the-shoulder camera like the recent Resident Evil 4 Remake. The game will continue to focus on the psychological horror aspects with survival being a key part of the experience.
