It’s been nearly a couple of years since leaks of a ground-up remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 developed by Virtuos first emerged, and it seems like those stories will finally be coming to a head very soon. Rumours have strongly suggested that the game will be announced as at the upcoming PlayStation Showcase, and while it seems like that will indeed be happening, it might not be happening quite the way many may have expected.
It was recently claimed that Metal Gear Solid 3’s remake was going to be exclusive to the PS5, as part of Konami having signed exclusivity deals with Sony for the Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and Castlevania franchises. Given how much Sony loves exclusivity deals, and the fact that Silent Hill 2’s remake has already been confirmed as a PS5 console exclusive, it was easy to assume that other Konami franchises may very well follow suit.
However, as per a repot published by Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson citing anonymous sources, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater’s remake is not going to be exclusive to the PS5. Henderson claims the game will be announced with a teaser at the upcoming PlayStation Showcase rather than with a full gameplay trailer, and that it will launch simultaneously for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Previous rumours have claimed that the remake is targeting a 2024 launch.
If you’re confused by the conflicting reports, thankfully, it seems like it won’t be long before we get official word on the game, when it will launch, and what platforms it will launch for. Stay tuned for more details in the coming days.
