The world of Metal Gear Solid has been a little quiet, don't you think? Aside from us getting hyped after the movie announcement starring Oscar Issac, we haven't really heard anything solid about the future of Snake and his gang of strangely named friends in a little while. Which is why this new rumour, suggesting that a bunch of Metal Gear Solid remakes are on the way, is particularly interesting.
According to GameRant, there have been rumours floating around of Sony getting Bluepoint Games to remake the original Metal Gear Solid since last year. However, more signs now point to multiple games getting a revival. A thread on ResetEra is the source of these rumours, and user KatharsisT seems sure when they say that "several MGS Remakes" are in the works.
"The Returnal of Ratchet and Clank is on the Horizon" is just a big PlayStation thread talking about upcoming games Sony has in the works. KatharsisT answered the question from another user who inquired about the number of Metal Gear Solid remakes Sony has going, and if Silent Hill and Castlevania (both of which are, like MGS, Konami properties) remakes are also in the works.
The full response from KatharsisT says: "Several MGS Remakes. Silent Hill is still in development but the studio has changed (and I don't wanna disclose the name of the new one for personal reasons). Castlevania was in discussion but that's all I know." Curious, right?
Of course, this is just a rumour, there is no way to know if this person is telling the truth, but it's certainly fun to speculate. However, it should be noted that the Metal Gear Twitter account has been hinting that something might be coming in terms of an announcement very soon, so maybe this is that announcement? We've also seen other reports suggesting that a Metal Gear Solid Collection will be coming to PlayStation 5, so all this evidence is adding up. There's also news that Konami has renewed trademarks for both Castlevania and the all-action MGS spin-off, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, in Japan. The evidence sure is stacking up, here.
Sony is currently under quite a lot of scrutiny as they've shown that they're triple-A blockbuster obsessive at the moment. The gaming giant is taking fewer risks with new games and seems to be focusing on funding projects that just feed into fan hype and that they know will be a success without issue. That's why we're getting a remake of The Last of Us rather than a Days Gone 2. These remakes that the leaker mentioned would make sense in terms of Sony's current business strategy so who knows, this could just be the real deal.
