Metal Gear Solid and its Solid Snake protagonist are some of the most recognizable names in gaming. Released over 25 years ago, the first Metal Gear Solid was a pioneer in the stealth-action genre of games, and introduced a universe that still captivates fans to this day. For a long time, Konami resisted fans' requests to remake these earlier games for modern platforms. However, Konami announced in 2023 that it's working on a full remake of Metal Gear Solid 3, called Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater. And fortunately for Solid Snake fans, new leaks suggest that Konami isn't stopping there.
Spanish website Areajugones reported that a remake for the first Metal Gear Solid has been in the works for years at Konami, and will become the studio's main focus following the release of Metal Gear Solid Delta. The leak claims that the remake will be available on the PS5, but not the PS4, inferring that the game is a current-gen exclusive. No mention was made of a Windows or Xbox release, but seeing that Metal Gear Solid Delta is being released on PlayStation, Xbox, and Windows, it seems likely that the Metal Gear Solid remake will see a similar release. No information was shared about a potential release date, and seeing that Metal Gear Solid Delta is still without one, the Metal Gear Solid remake's release is likely not anytime soon.
What Details Did The Leak Reveal?
A full remake of Metal Gear Solid is in the works at Konami.
Following the release of Metal Gear Solid Delta, the remake will become one of Konami's main focuses.
On console, it will be a current-gen exclusive.
No release date yet.
Areajugones accurately leaked the existence of God of War Ragnarok's recently announced DLC, so there is reason to believe that the website's sources are solid. The leak further explains that Konami is considering this remake as one of its most ambitious projects for the coming years, and based on what's already been shown of Metal Gear Solid Delta, fans have good reason to be excited.
Metal Gear Solid Delta features a complete overhaul of Metal Gear Solid 3's graphics, and the results are impressive. Based on this, fans can expect a similar approach for the rumored Metal Gear Solid remake, which will presumably bring a completely modern look to the legendary game. This newest leak seems to line up with previous statements made by the developer.
Following the reveal of Metal Gear Solid Delta, Konami stated that it's more than open to remaking additional Metal Gear Solid games. At the time, Konami might have been hinting that much more is on the way.
