After the reckless release of the Metal Gear Survive, Konami could soon bring the Metal Gear Solid series back to the scene, according to a rumor. As revealed by the verified ResetEra forum user Potterson, the publisher would be working on porting the first and second installments of the series.
Metal Gear Solid 1 & 2 were launched years ago on PC but are no longer playable on modern operating systems. It wouldn’t be anything other than simple ports, so fans shouldn’t expect any significant technical improvements or even new content.
In addition, however, there is concern that the original Metal Gear for MSX will also arrive on PC, it is not clear whether as part of a complete package or as a standalone release. For the moment, it should be pointed out, we would only talk about ports on PC and not about remasters or remakes, and this would exclude the world of consoles.
If confirmed, it would be an operation, the umpteenth, of the Japanese publisher aimed at monetizing the franchise created by Hideo Kojima. If nothing else, relaunching these products on PC could be the right pretext to probe the interest of fans in new products of the iconic saga, should it be needed?
Konami has returned to be talked about recently, but not for the publication of eFootball PES 2021 Season Update, instead for another operation quite difficult to understand. The Japanese company ended up in the sights of PlayStation fans, who rushed to the net to ask Sony for its acquisition as a response to the Microsoft-ZeniMax Media and Bethesda acquisition.
