In November last year, Konami temporarily suspended digital sales of all versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 across digital storefronts as it worked on “renewing the licenses for select historical archive footage used in-game” in both titles. That process, it seems, is coming to a close soon.

Taking recently to Twitter, Konami commemorated Metal Gear’s 35th anniversary with a post published via the series’ official page. In the same message, the company also confirmed that it is “preparing to resume sales of titles that have been temporarily suspended.” Metal Gear Solid 2 and aren’t explicitly named, of course, but presumably those are the games in question.

The Metal Gear franchise has been on a hiatus for a number of years, thanks not only to creator Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami, but Konami’s own changing strategies and approach to the games industry. The last mainline game in the series was 2018’s Metal Gear Survive, which followed 2015’s Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

Recent leaks, however, have claimed that a ground-up remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is in development at Singapore-based studio Virtuos. The LinkedIn profile of one of Virtuos’ employees has also previously mentioned an unannounced AAA remake of an action-adventure game.
