Rumored PlayStation Showcase to Unveil Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is chronologically the first entry in the expansive Metal Gear video game franchise.

With more than a dozen titles in the franchise, Konami and Sony could keep on churning out remakes of Metal Gear for decades.

Multiple sources within the video game industry have suggested that a PlayStation-exclusive remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is close to confirmation at this point.

The XboxEra co-host, Shpeshal_Nick, mentioned in a recent episode that "he's heard" that the still-unconfirmed PlayStation showcase will feature the "rumored Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake", adding that the game could have "exclusive content". But, Windows Central's Jez Corden took this a step further, saying that he's "heard about Metal Gear exclusivity for PlayStation".

The Highlight Reel

A PlayStation-exclusive remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater might be close to confirmation, according to multiple industry sources.

When you consider that Jeff Grubb has mentioned several times already that a PlayStation Showcase is happening before the Summer Game Fest, presumably later this month, you can't help but speculate that something really is going on.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is an excellent starting point for a remake/reboot of the franchise.

Previously, it was said that Konami had big plans for E3 2023. Now that it's canceled, Konami could have tapped one of its longest-running partners.

It's looking more and more likely that it's only a matter of time before Sony confirms this month's PlayStation Showcase.

We previously reported on a rumor that several first-party studios are already prepared to showcase whatever they've been working on in the past few years. Given that it's been nearly two years since Sony has hosted a PlayStation Showcase, fans are understandably excited to see what else Sony has planned for the PlayStation 5 now that more and more games are no longer coming out on last-gen consoles. 

Regardless of whether a PlayStation Showcase with the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake in it is happening or not, Sony has plenty to reveal.

It's a shame that Konami and Hideo Kojima ended their longterm partnership in such bad terms.

From the first gameplay footage of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 ahead of its rumored September launch to the upcoming new PlayStation 5 variant (and maybe even a PlayStation 5 Pro), Sony can either drop more info one by one in a smaller and more focused State of Play or make everyone happy by holding a PlayStation Showcase.

Speaking of Konami, it's also believed that Sony and Konami have signed off on a deal to make future Silent Hill, Metal Gear, and Castlevania entries exclusive to the PlayStation platform.
