Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake to be Announced at PlayStation Showcase, Exclusive to PS5 – Rumour

Sony has allegedly struck exclusivity deals with Konami for Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, and Castlevania.

Rumours of a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake have been in the headlines on and off for about a couple of years now, but it seems an announcement could finally be on the horizon. Earlier this year, it was reported that the remake and a new Castlevania game would both be announced by Konami at E3, but with E3 2023 having been officially cancelled, it seems the Japanese company is instead looking to make those announcements at Sony’s rumoured upcoming PlayStation Showcase event.

XboxEra co-founder Nick Baker recently said on the XboxEra Podcast that the Metal Gear Slid 3 remake might be announced at the showcase, which is allegedly set for later this month, and that the title could be exclusive to PS5.

Interestingly enough, Windows Central’s Jez Corden has corroborated this, saying on Twitter that he’s “heard similar” about Metal Gear Solid 3’s PS5 exclusivity, and going on to add that Sony has agreed exclusivity deals with Konami for Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, and Castlevania. Silent Hill 2’s upcoming remake is, of course, already confirmed to be launching exclusively for PS5 and PC, but does that mean the other two franchises will release for PC as well. That’s something Corden says he is unsure on.

Of course, with the PlayStation Showcase rumoured to take place later this month, there’s a chance we’ll end up getting official details on this front sooner rather than later.

Earlier this year, it was also reported that the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake is targeting a 2024 launch.
