Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake May Be A Timed Exclusive
The oft rumored remake of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 3 may be a timed exclusive, based on the latest information.
Speaking during the latest episode of The Xbox Two, co-host Jez Corden, who is known for his sources in the games industry, stated that the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake will not be an exclusive and is, therefore, a multiplatform title. That said, he added that it may be end up being a timed exclusive along with a marketing deal.
Corden mentioned that the rumor regarding PlayStation exclusivity for the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake was first brought up by The XboxEra Podcast co-host, Shpeshal Nick. Nick mentioned that the game will likely be revealed the forthcoming PlayStation Showcase event, which itself has yet to be announced.
Nick had stated, however, that his source wasn’t 100% sure about the information regarding PlayStation exclusivity for the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake. Corden had also corroborated the information back then by stating on Twitter that he had heard similar things about the game being exclusive to PlayStation. However, based on what Corden has recently heard, the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake could actually be multiplatform. He added that it appears that the deal with PlayStation is either marketing, timed DLC, or timed exclusivity.
The existence of a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake is quickly becoming Sony and Konami’s worst kept secret. Recently, the voice actor for the main theme song in Metal Gear Solid 3, Donna Burke, seemingly confirmed the existence of the rumored remake. Burke shared a series of tweets from a recording-in-progress, suggesting that she may be working on a track for the rumored remake.
In one of the images shared by her, it’s possible to read the lyrics (see screenshot above) from a sheet. The aforementioned lyrics appear to be from the Metal Gear Solid 3 theme song, titled Snake Eater. This suggests that Burke may in fact be re-recording the theme song for the remake, which has bee rumored to be in development at Konami.
