A new rumor circulating online suggests that Konami plans to remaster classic Metal Gear Solid games for modern consoles.
solid metal gear was once one of the top franchises in the gaming industry, but the last few years haven’t been kind to it. Konami’s departure of series creator Hideo Kojima has resulted in the solid metal gear The IP is almost completely abandoned in terms of new game releases, and it doesn’t look like there will be a new entry anytime in the near future. However, a recent rumor suggests that while a new solid metal gear The game may not happen any time soon, remasters of the classics could be on the way.
This rumor was reported by VGC, with insider AestheticGamer weighing in with more details. After it was reported that Konami will be at the Tokyo Game Show to make an announcement about a beloved game series, VGC spoke about some of the Konami games that are supposedly in development, such as the Bloober Team. Silent Hill project and remasterings of classics solid metal gear games. VGC believes that these types of projects will be announced at events like The Game Awards or a PlayStation State of Play instead of TGS, but the possibility of a classic solid metal gear The remasters are likely to excite fans anyway.
AestheticGamer, who accurately leaked Japanese gaming news in the past (mainly about the demonic resident franchise), backed up the claims in the VGC report, adding that Konami plans to release remasters of Solid Metal Gear 1, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of LibertyY Metal Gear Solid 3: Serpent Eater. The titles will apparently be available as separate purchases, but also bundled into a collection. Previous reports indicated that a solid metal gear 3 remaster was in development at Virtuos, so while fans should expect an official announcement, it definitely looks like something is happening
This is far from the first time rumors have surfaced about Konami revisiting the solid metal gear franchise. Previously it was rumored that a real solid metal gear The remake was in development rather than a remaster, and the game could be made by Bluepoint Games, a studio known for its high-quality remakes. If Konami is doing solid metal gear remasters instead, it seems that reports about a solid metal gear remake were inaccurate.
Fans should take all of this information with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made. Right now the only solid metal gear project that fans can say for sure exists is the solid metal gear film, which stars Oscar Isaac as Solid Snake and will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
