Silent Hill 2 Remake Developer Bloober Team Plans to Expand Beyond Games


Silent Hill 2 remake Developer Bloober Team is expanding beyond video games, apparently choosing to venture into things like movies or other storytelling mediums. Video games are a huge medium these days and have even started to attract the attention of major actors and filmmakers in the last decade. Co-author of the Dark Knight trilogy and man of Steel Author David S. Goyer helped improve the scripts of the Call of Duty: Black Ops games and consulted on the story, which stars Keanu Reeves and Idris Elba Cyberpunk 2077, etc. However, now it seems like some video game developers want to expand into other mediums after gaining a considerable amount of influence. We saw that with Hideo Kojima and his studio, and now another team is going down this path as well.

Bloober Team, the developers of horror games like The medium, Blair witchand the coming Silent Hill 2 remake, has partnered with CAA, a giant agency that manages all types of actors and celebrities in Los Angeles, California. According to Bloober Team CEO Piotr Babieno, the company noted that the company sees “great possibilities” beyond playing with the horror genre, although he hasn’t specified exactly what that looks like just yet.

“I’m excited about this partnership,” said Babieno. “CAA is a world class agency and their portfolio is very impressive. Bloober Team’s strategy for the years to come is to achieve a leading position in the horror genre. It is a perfect match for both partners. We’re on our way to becoming a company whose IP will be firmly entrenched in pop culture. Together with our friends at CAA, we will be expanding this intellectual property to new platforms and expanding audiences for these popular titles. While we specialize in game development and telling stories through games, we see great opportunities to go beyond gaming while staying true to our DNA of horror.”

Anyhow, Bloober Team has grown massively over the last few years and it wouldn’t be surprising if more of its games were adapted into games and TV shows. Hollywood has started greenlighting adaptations to a slew of big game franchises in recent years, and it doesn’t seem like that’s slowing down. Blooper teams The medium and layers of fear resonated quite strongly with audiences, so it’s possible these will be adjusted.
