Here's a doozy of a rumour for you: Metal Gear Solid (the PS1 classic) is being remade (again) and it's coming to PS5 and PC. This is according to YouTube channel RedGamingTech, which has been known to provide some accurate leaks in the past, although they specialise in hardware information rather than software.
Still, according to their source — a source that apparently has a 100 per cent track record up to this point — this supposed Metal Gear Solid revival is a full remake, not just some kind of port or remaster.
The source also states that Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and 4 are all being re-released, but it sounds like they're set to be remasters rather than full remakes. It's unclear whether they're coming to PS5 as well, or whether they're just targeting PC.
We don't know how far into development the Metal Gear Solid remake is, but its rumoured existence does tie into reports that we've heard elsewhere. For starters, we know that Sony has been flashing its cash to third party publishers in order to lock down exclusive PS5 deals — Final Fantasy XVI is a perfect example of this. A remake of Metal Gear Solid — arguably the most beloved instalment in a series synonymous with PlayStation — certainly fits the bill when you consider that Sony dished out serious dosh for timed exclusivity on a very similar project, namely Final Fantasy VII Remake.
But is Konami really going to pump money into crafting a full-blown remake of Metal Gear Solid? Without a doubt, stranger things have happened, but the Japanese publisher is something of an enigma these days, which makes it an easy starting point for all kinds of rumours. Remember Silent Hills on PS5? Heck, maybe that's happening as well, and Konami's really getting back into the swing of things.
Anyway, this is certainly one to keep an eye on.

If true ..this would be freaking amazing ! Bring back David Hayter ! MGS isn't MGS without him !
That would be amazing. And port Metal Gear Solid 4 to the PS5 while you're at it--I'm just kidding, that'll never happen.
I wish but I'll believe it when I see it.
Imagine a full remake of Metal Gear Solid on the Fox Engine with Metal Gear Solid V gameplay mechanics.
I... I think I need to lie down.
Out of all games, MGS 4 truly needs a proper remaster. The game looks amazing on PS3 but there is a sense that it is not at its full potential. Playing it at 4K/60 fps will be an amazing experience for this game hoho.
Can't wait to get peed on by a wolf in HDR 4K.
@ShogunRok Does fox engine still exist? If i remember right Konami seems to move on from that engine. Heck, the new PES will be using UE4. If is true a remake is coming i'll bet it will be using UE4.
Maybe Sony have bought the licenses for Konamis IPs. Now just give the remake to Kojima productions and the remasters to Bluepoint. Oh and while im dreaming a metal gear rising remaster would also be welcome
My favorite MGS 🤩🤩
@Danloaded It's absolutely criminal that Rising hasn't been remastered.
I echo the "I'll believe it when I see it" sentiment.
@Leon_93 Good question. I'm sure it still exists, but it hasn't been used since Metal Gear Survive.
@ShogunRok How About The 2 MSX Metal Gear Games Remade From The Ground Up With The Fox Engine The First One Will Pick Up Right Where The Phantom Pain Left Off With a Young Soild Snake Infiltrating Outer Heaven
I'll believe when it when I see it.
Speaking of MGS3 remaster. I played the pachinko version that uses fox engine in Japan. A part of my soul left my body that day.
Pretty much lost faith in Konami. I don’t think they can pull it off.
@Danloaded This is my hope. That they have purchased the licenses for Silent Hill and MGS. Konami gets a cut of the profit, but is not involved in development. They don’t care about making video games, but if others did it for them and they made money then it’s a win.
The prospect of a MGS remake will undoubtedly cause some solid snakes...
N.i.c.e. hopefully they made a new castlevania also.metal gear will look incredible on the ps5 even if it was on ps4 it will still looks good.sony should just buy konami.they aint doing nothing with it.and off topic give me syphon filter.parasite eve.sly cooper collection. Resistance.manhunt 3.the darkness 3.word up son
Ok. I was waiting for the GoWII ps5 bundle, now I'm hoping for a ps5 mgs:re bundle.
This was the only move for Konami to make given how MG:Survive went. They have an excellent engine and the series has aged so much it could really benefit from being remade.
@TechaNinja Saw the trailer for it, looks freaking amazing and yet instead of making it for current consoles and PC they decide to release it as a pachinko. Such a sad sad fate.
Ill buy day 1. Even without owning a PS5! One of the top 5 PS games I ever played.
@playstation1995 Sony buying Konami makes more sense than it might seem at first. Not just for the games division, but Konami's gambling and appliance division could fit right in with Sony's bigger business strategies. Word up son.
@ShogunRok ok yes...but now imagine ALL MGS from 1 to 4 remade like that
Man if this happens, it's going to be good.
I really hope this is the rumor that turns out to be true. Absolutely love this game. It would be amazing if they could still find a way to do the controller swap for Psycho Mantis
@Areus A remake of the two msx games would be a dream come true. To see snake and gray fox battling it out in a minefield would blow my fanboy mind!
Just hope Sony buys up Konami and resurrects all these franchises.
THIS!, I told you all yesterdy that I wanted for Sony to AT LEAST buy the IP rights of MGS, Castlevania, Silent Hill, Suikoden and other Konami's IP.
Resurrect old IPs and develop new teams working on it!
Can Sony just buy Konami please, they have been doing nothing with their IPs, AT THE VERY LEAST give them a contract and split on it
Silent Hill needs to comeback!
@ShogunRok definitely. Metal gear rising had such a killer boss soundtrack.
Amazing if true... please bring back David Hayter though - the guy is a legend.
Even if this rumour is true, will this game still have it's magic touch without Kojima overseeing the development?
I heard a rumour from my stuffed bear that Sega and Sony are going to do a remake of Finny the fish, He’s very accurate, he tells me I’m an idiot all the time and that is 100% true.
Hopefully it has turn based battles, ghosts, and extra dimensional plot twists!
This is what I was hoping Blue Point were working on. Praying it turns out to be true.
That would be awesome but..... what if it's just ports?
The port are leaked coming to PC.
Do we have a FF7 situation here?
'PCMetal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, and Konami Collector’s Series: Castlevania and Contra rated for PC in Taiwan'
It's my fav mgs along with mgs4 but isn't the first game super short, like 4-5 hours. I hope it's a remake of mgs 1 psone rather than the gamecube version.
In the interest of increased competition I sincerely hope that Sony have picked up both Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid for PS5. However, two of my favourite ever video games getting full blown remakes... I won't get excited just yet
Jim Sterling will be doing an F-Konami video soon then
That is awesome news. I still have the collector's edition of MGS (PS1)
Make my DualSense rumble, Psycho Mantis.
I coii U.K. of get on board with a full enhanced compilation of metal gear games on ps5, but just the first? No. That wouldn’t interest me.
Man,exclusivity, will kill this gen,at this rate.
If I was Sony I would be looking over my shoulder at MS. I am not a fan of subscription services but Gamepass keeps pushing the right buttons. That huge Zenimax acusistion... All MS first party on gamepass, day 1...
MS is really flexing its finance muscles.
I have many friends who game with Sony and all of them have pre ordered a Series X. It's going to be a very close next gen which is great for gamers but MS is really pushing hard and Sony can't compete on a finance level...
As for Metal Gear Remake... That's fine. Bluepoint did a great gamecube remake. Its not something I will jump at through as if its still the same game I've seen it through many times. Let's see what happens. Personally I would prefer a new Silent Hill.
I’ll believe it when I see it, how long have we been hearing similar about silent hill? Konami and Kojima hate each other and the former have only ever shown how much of a terrible company they are, I can definitely seeing them giving a big ***** you to Kojima and anything he’s associated with out of spite.
Although I prefer new games rather than remakes, I support this one if true as the original game hasn’t aged well and it’s first remake is tied to the GameCube and not widely available.
My only concern is this is Konami we’re talking and they seem to be kings at screwing the pooch somehow.
Well I'll be damned! Fingers crossed this is true!
1 would be cool, although im not sure 2 and 3 need further remasters after bluepoint's recent efforts. 4 is the one that really needs to be rescued. It will be increasingly difficult for players to experience it so long as its locked to PS3.
Would be fascinating to see how the dualsense comes into play for things like the psycho mantis boss battle
Seeing alot of talk about MGS 4 needing a remaster/remake and I’m over here hoping one day there will be a remake for the original Metal Gear or Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake in particular is the most complex 8-bit game that was created, a masterpiece in 1990 but deserves a remake treatment the most because it’s so outdated now.
Ok, firstly this is from a random You Tune channel, I wouldn’t believe a word they say, and secondly it’s also coming to PC! Well as has been said you’ll see all those ‘exclusives’ from Sony on PC just like from the Xbox, so the only true platform to get is a PC and play everything..
@ShogunRok true, rising was a gem technically and gameplay wise. Was also on board with the absurd plot. Maybe I just sucked, but the difficulty spike with the final boss felt insane!
Unless Sony funds this and has creative control it will be a pile of crap. Konami haven’t released anything relevant in years unless you like football, and Kojima won’t be involved so that tells you all you need to know.
I’ll take remasters of the older games if they are done well. The remaster disc on PS3 is good but missing titles. But then the Silent Hill remasters were terrible...
I’d much rather a new Silent Hill or at least a reboot done right. Similar to what Capcom did with RE, bringing it into modern times.
So not a console exclusive, got it. Stupid people buying the marketing line to feel better about their purchase.
Also, pressing 2 to doubt on this.
Remake as in changing the gameplay? Honestly I'm not into that. Why not remake the older metal gear games? There's story there most people would like to see but probably can't deal with the gameplay (I couldn't get into it anyway). MGS on the other hand is still very playable, I replayed it on ps vita and really enjoyed it.
This would be THE BEST THING EVER!!! PLEASE be true Well make it the same as the original to and don't mess with the story etc etc. These are the sort of games I buy PlayStation's for not some BORING PC like games that Microsoft buy
As with RE 2 and 3, that doesn't concern me much since there are the originals... although the first MGS I might have to run on PSP even after a Vita purchase (in case if it proves true that the latter inexplicably requires the extra investment in a PS3 just to install the damn game😅).
EDIT: shame on me, didn't notice the rumour tag. Nothing to discuss, then.
This would soften the Zenimax punch in the guts from the other day.
After the Bethesda announcement this feels a little flat and pointless.
A new Silent Hill, however, would bring a little bit a joy to PS fans. I miss that series massively 🙁
I don't just want this, I need this to happen!!! MGS is my favourite series.
Believe it once it confirmed. Would be great tho.
A Metal Gear Solid Collection on PS5?!
TAKE MY MONEY!!!!
It's a great game (frankly, one of the best) but not remotely excited for a remake. I've played it to death, the PS1 version is still fun and the GC remake, while pretty good, is worse than the original.
Sure, why not? I'm not an especially big MGS fan truth be told but I'd definitely give it a go. Have to admit these kinds of rumours look like wishful thinking in the wake of the Xbox announcements, though.
@kyleforrester87 depends if it is a remake, or a reimagining. I'd be interested to see what the project is first before I got excited. However, this is Konami, and quite frankly I just don't thinj they're interested in making games any more. They should've sold their gaming division years ago when it was worth something with limited rights to IP.l, i.e. you can only make videogames with these IPs but we retain all other rights.
@Mezzer Ikr. For the first time ever I'm actually considering an Xbox. To be able to play all of Bethesda's past and future games as part of a one subscription is enough for me to get one.
I did like the original but I played it at a time that a remake would not evoke the same feelings. Give this one a pass
Where is that Fry meme...
Shut up and take my money!!!
I have had both PS4 and Xbox for the last 9 months. Gamepass has been the biggest reason why my Xbox hase been a lot more played than PS4
Out of all the "third-party exclusives" (quotation marks made necessary by the oxymoron), this is easily the one that makes the most sense. What I don't get, perhaps, is why building on the origial MGS when The Twin Snakes exists. They should, er, remake the GameCube remake.
Not believing this after the silent hill fiasco.
@TechaNinja The Pachislot doesn't use the Fox Engine, or any video game engine. Konami's amusements division is seperate from the gaming division.
@DeepSpace5D Nothing can save MGS4. A bad game is a bad game.
OMG, it's my favourite game of all time. Microsoft can have Bethesda lol.
@Menchi @Lemonade It says "console exclusive". "Console exclusive" means it's exclusive within the console space, yet is also on PC. It's not the same as just "exclusive".
It's not really anything new. Everyone strongly associates FFVII with PS1 yet it came out on PC the same year as PS1. It still wasn't on Saturn or N64 and that's all most people were focusing on. GTA1 was out on PC first but was only on PS1, not Saturn or N64. Resident Evil came out on PC the same year as PS1 - at least in Japan. It's always been about out doing other consoles rather than PC since so many console gamers (not me) ignore PC.
Can we just get the whole series remade in UE5? I'm excited to see some real games in the new engine after that tech demo, and I'm pretty sure you could get the first game done pretty quickly with the new pipelines.
Even if it was to be a exclusive
Xbox ain't missing out
@Matroska They can create whatever terms they want to feel better. I will sit back and laugh at the multiplatform games they try to claim.
@Steel76 I already forget my playtime since I played it on psone back then, maybe it's because really I like the story so I lost track of the time played
MGS4 WAS only on ps3 if they remastered it they would likely being it to playstation 5 of remember was some funny bits they made fun of rival consoles but hyped playstation well back when xbox 360 needed 3 discs for games lol 😆
Hi there fellow gamers. I´ve been wanting this to happened ever since I played the original. I´m a huge Metal Gear Solid fan and something like this could be huge for all the fans and Playstation as well.
Now just imagine Sony acquiring the rights for Castlevania, MGS and Sillent Hill franchises from Konami....... Mind blowing for sure.
And MGS4 on PS5 would be amazing.
And a remake of MG and MG2 would be phenomenal.
Make it happen Sony.
Cheers, stay safe out there and happy gaming to us all
This would be so much hype. Even if they have the top down camera still in place, just seeing everything in MGS1 remade would be amazing with today's engines.
@ShogunRok Yes, so we Europeans can finally have the DLC included, like it is free in US. I literally have never played it because of this!
@TheIdleCritic Sadly this happens quite often. Not much we can do about it, unfortunately. Sourcing articles is more professional courtesy than it is a rule that everyone needs to follow.
Not sure I trust Konami to do anything quality anymore, but I'm interested. MGS is one of my favourite game series.
That would be godly and will be a system seller for sure!
I’ll believe it when I see it.
I would love to see it, though.
Hell, Sony should make an offer for Konami as a whole. They may could revive the studio of my childhood. I grew up with Contra III, Hard Corps, Rocket Knight Adventures, SOTN, and Metal Gear. They were my favorite third party developer.
It honestly saddens me to see how far they have sunk since 2015.
Hope Sony buys Konami games properties outright, and contracts Kojima to oversee this remake. Then afterwards can we finally get a Zone of the Enders 3? Please?
Metal gear 1 & 2 remakes would be better
If they did do a remake bring back all the original voice actors if they can or maybe use the original voice audio, the original PS1 voice of GrayFox is the best but I do t think it would ever have the moment when first experience the game unless they add extra stuff. I mean MGS2 when you switched over to Raiden and then Ninja turned out to be Olga in the suit and was working for the patriots WTF moments right there that whole game was pure gold for it.
And suddenly all the folks rushing over to XBox come right back to Playstation.
The only MGS game I have never played is Guns Of The Patriot. Never got around to playing that one.
I remember playing all of them especially guns of the patriots when it had ps3 consoles even making fun but not mentioning xbox 360( who needed 2 or even 3 discs cuz didn't have blu-Rey )
