Metal Gear Solid Remake Rumored To Be PS5 Exclusive
A Metal Gear Solid remake is in development and is all set to be a PS5 exclusive, according to the latest rumor.
According to AREAJUGONES’ sources, the Metal Gear Solid Remake will be exclusive to PS5, which also means it won’t be a cross-gen title. Based on the information, the game’s official announcement is set to happen sometime soon. That said, it’s unlikely to be announced at the forthcoming The Game Awards.
The leak only mentions the existence of the Metal Gear Solid remake project, and doesn’t reveal further details regarding the game, such as a possible release window. As per the source, the project has been in in the works exclusively for PS5 for multiple years.
As always, we recommend that our readers take such rumors with a grain of salt. Though, it is worth mentioning that this isn’t the first time a Metal Gear Solid remake rumor has popped up. Additionally, based on another rumor, it was revealed that remasters for Kojima Productions’ Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 are reportedly also in development. According to Dusk Golem, who is known for his contacts in the game industry, the first three Metal Gear Solid games are getting the remastered treatment from Konami.
Dusk Golem stated that MGS 1, 2, and 3 remasters are planned for release on all platforms, including Steam and consoles. According to him, Konami plans on releasing the new remastered versions of Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 will be sold separately, but if the trilogy is bought as a collection, buyers will get extra goodies in the form of MSX versions of Metal Gear 1 and 2 MSX.
According to Golem, multiple reliable sources have confirmed the aforementioned details to him on multiple occasions. He stated that he hadn’t originally planned on going public with details regarding Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 remasters, but he ultimately decided to do so, since others had already spilled the beans.
