Konami is developing a remake of Metal Gear Solid
The latest update from a Spanish leaker claims that there will be a Metal Gear Solid remake. The game is allegedly in development. This news provides a link for when the remake of Metal Gear Solid could release.
- Konami has already confirmed that it’s now in the process of licensing its biggest game properties to partner studios. It has also made an announcement of several major Silent Hill projects. According to the new leak, Metal Gear Solid’s remake could be the next Konami announcement. Its release is also surprisingly soon.
- Metal Gear Solid is considerably Konami’s biggest franchise apart from its Pro Evolution Soccer series. However, it’s heavily entangled with the artistry of series creator Hideo Kojima. With Kojima now independent, the game is left to fall apart as per Game Rant.
- Konami looks like they are ready to bring Metal Gear Solid back into the fold. Recent rumors claim that a Metal Gear Solid remake has been in development for years. It is allegedly being prepared for an exclusive release on the PS5.
What we know so far
The Spanish website Areajugones updates new developments about the leak. In the update, the website’s source of the leak claims that the Metal Gear Solid remake will be coming soon. Specifically, the announcement will happen before May 2023.
- To further clarify, it’s likely to happen in early 2023. Rumors estimate that the game will release sometime in either February or March this year. If this is true, then it would fall in Konami’s current fiscal year.

The ‘news’ is still a rumor
This leak is still published as a rumor due to a lack of official information. Although Areajugones has disclosed some accurate leaks before, including those related to PlayStation, there’s no guarantee this leak will also be accurate.
- The editor of the original leak clarified that they do not possess all the information. They also did not have enough backup for the leak as on previous occasions. On other occasions, the information was supported with necessary details which makes them wonder if be true.

- Despite this, the editor adds that the leak at least confirms the remake’s existence and an official announcement could come soon. Initially, there was suspicion of the Metal Gear Solid remake’s official announcement at The Game Awards… which didn’t happen. However, if the official Metal Gear Solid announcement is coming soon, then fans won’t have to wait long to rejoice.
- According to Game Rant, it makes perfect sense for Konami to bring back Metal Gear Solid by revisiting such a classic game in the franchise. It’s also a more steady option than jumping straight into a sequel. Therefore, if Konami and its partners can create a Metal Gear Solid closer to the remake of Demon’s Souls, then it would be a great way to start a new era.
The Metal Gear Solid series is famous for its complex narrative, gameplay, and classic characters. Therefore, a remake of the 1998 classic will help introduce it to a new generation and open doors for the future of the franchise.
