Rumors speak of three new Silent Hill: a remake, a sequel and an episodic ‘spin-off’; screenshots of the remake are circulating on the internet.
Dusk Golem, a well-known insider of Resident Evil, affirms that the images are accurate but belong to an internal demo that was made before the approval -Konami was looking for partners in 2018 to give new life to the license- and therefore, they could be very different from the Final product.
Bloober Team, known for The Medium and Layers of Fear, would be developing a remake of Silent Hill 2. The rumour has been heard for a long time, especially since Bloober and Konami signed a collaboration agreement whose results we still do not know. Some supposed images of the remake, of poor quality, are circulating on the internet.
