The Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake might not be exclusive to the PS5

If true, Konami's exclusivity deal with Sony might only include marketing rights and not the actual game itself.

Neither Konami nor Sony have confirmed the remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Yet, the details about the supposedly incoming game keep leaking online. The latest claims that the next Metal Gear game will be available on the Xbox, after all.

A Metal Gear game without Hideo Kojima might never be as good as the franchise was at its peak but we'll never know unless it comes out.

Initial reports suggested that the remake of the first Metal Gear game in terms of canonicity would be exclusive to the PS5. But, it appears that this isn't the case.

According to a report by Insider Gaming, the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake will be available to the PS5 and Xbox Series S as well as X and the PC (via Steam).

This is excellent news for Xbox owners but it's also a double-edged sword. The highly criticized Xbox Series S has a reputation for negatively affecting the performance of games. One developer even went as far as to call it out last year for its "potato" graphics card.

Of course, until we get an actual confirmation, it's far too early to worry about the potential performance of the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake on the Xbox Series S.

Ultimately, the release of the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake is set in stone, based on the reports, with Konami presumed to be locked in a deal with Sony.

If the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake is released on the Xbox Series S/X, the exclusivity might only apply to the platform. A recent example is Hogwarts Legacy, which was never shown on official Xbox channels until it launched because Sony had marketing rights to the top-selling open-world Harry Potter RPG.

Metal Gear Solid 3 is one way to start off what's presumably a series of remakes.

Without official word from Konami, all we can do is wait for more information about the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake.

All eyes are on the May 24 PlayStation Showcase to confirm or deny the said reports.

While Konami hasn't confirmed if it's working on new Metal Gear and Castlevania games, it has multiple Silent Hill projects in the pipeline, including a remake of Silent Hill 2 for the PS5.
