With Hideo Kojima having moved on to greener pastures, many people wonder what will happen with the Metal Gear Solid franchise that belongs to Konami.
As it turns out, a rumor has suggested that a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 could be announced at the upcoming PlayStation Showcase, and it could be revealed as a PS exclusive. Windows Central’s Jez Corden has corroborated this news:
If anything, this news contradicts the rumor a month ago that a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 would be announced soon. With Konami leaning in on the remake of their most successful franchises like Silent Hill, it would also make sense that the studio would be looking to return to Metal Gear, especially now that Kojima won’t be making any new MGS games for them anytime soon.
Regarding PlayStation exclusivity, it would make sense that PlayStation would want to nab the license for any huge game IPs. They already have exclusivity to Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding and the new Final Fantasy games, so a lock on Metal Gear Solid would be expected.
Then again, this is all based on rumors, so we’ll just have to wait for the PlayStation Showcase to find out what’s what.
A remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 has not been officially announced. The PlayStation Showcase is expected to take place later this month.
