Late last year, Stealth fans got a jolt of excitement, when rumors swirled that the original Metal Gear Solid was being remade with an announcement set to be sometime “soon.” While rumors say “soon” could be weeks or months away, many are beginning to speculate that a remake of MGS might be showing up at The Game Awards, which, unfortunately, hasn’t happened. However, the rumors are not necessarily dead.
According to Spanish gaming site Areajugones, which was the source of the original Metal Gear Solid re-release rumors and has meticulously leaked a variety of PlayStation-related information in the past, an announcement is still on the way. According to Per Areajugones’ source, MGS’ announcement will come sometime before May 2023, with a late-winter announcement likely in February or March.

Confusing things don’t necessarily mean these rumors are untrue – Konami operates in mysterious ways.
It should also be noted that Sony is rumored to be revealing some major new third-party PlayStation content soon. The Metal Gear Solid remake is said to be a PS5 exclusive, so perhaps one of these Sony announcements is the Metal Gear Solid remake. Fingers crossed.
