A new rumor has it that a PlayStation 5 exclusive remake of Metal Gear Solid is in development, with an announcement coming soon.
A PS5-exclusive remake of Metal Gear Solid is in development, according to a new rumor. Rumors of a full remake of Metal Gear Solid have been circulating for years, but no official news has been forthcoming. While titles from the PS3 and PS4 generations have often been remixed for the new consoles, remakes of classic PS1 and PS2 games have become increasingly popular recently.
Many publishers are now trying to bring these fan-favorite games to modern audiences by completely remaking them from the ground up. Such re-releases can include quality-of-life improvements, improved voice acting, all-new cutscenes, and more, in addition to a massive graphical overhaul. They also provide a great opportunity for newer players to experience classic games, perhaps with modernized gameplay. Now, a new leak has shared more details about the supported platforms for the supposed Metal Gear Solid remake.
A leak by Areajugones reveals that the Metal Gear Solid remake will be exclusive to the PlayStation 5. Areajugones mentions that he got this information from anonymous sources who claim that this project has been in the works for years. While the leaker didn’t reveal any specific details, he claims that this MGS title will indeed be a PS5 exclusive. According to Areajugones, a full announcement of the project could be made relatively soon. However, such rumors should not be taken lightly, and fans should wait for confirmation from Konami about a possible MGS remake.
One of the earlier rumors of a PS5 exclusive Metal Gear Solid remake dates to September 2020. The original leak noted that it was a console-exclusive game, so it could come to PC at launch or sometime after the original release.
On October 19, Konami held a special Silent Hill presentation and confirmed that several new games in the franchise are in development. This list included the highly anticipated Silent Hill 2 remake for PS5 and PC. Perhaps Konami will announce a similar collaboration with Sony for the rumored Metal Gear Solid remake.
In addition to the original game, information leaked over the past year revealed that they are reportedly working on several Metal Gear Solid remakes. It looks like Konami wants to bring the first few titles from the iconic series to modern platforms, and it will be interesting to see if the PS5 exclusivity rumors end up being true when these announcements happen.
According to news, a Metal Gear Solid remake is also in the works for PS5.
