Rumor: Metal Gear Solid remake from the devs of Demon’s Souls on PS5 is in development.
The Metal Gear Solid series is remembered by players as something one of a kind, and its creator, Hideo Kojima, started with other unusual projects – the latest of which is Death Stranding. Despite this, fans could enjoy the recent re-releases of the first and second part of MGS, which appeared on GOG, and now they can have high hopes for something more, if you believe the reports of one trusted online informant.
The user Moore’s Law Is Dead, an insider famous mainly for the fact that he predicted (based on his sources) the announcement of God of War: Ragnarok a year in advance, posted a podcast on his YouTube channel a few days ago, in which he informed about the work on the remake of the first one Metal Gear Solid.
The title has been in development for 3 years, and Bluepoint Games is responsible for it – known from all kinds of remasters and remakes created for PlayStation consoles, for example Shadow of the Colossus (on PS4) or Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (also on PS4). The refreshed MGS was to be created in parallel with the new Demon’s Souls, and Mark Cerny, the main architect of PS4 and PS5 systems, is also involved in the production process.
We will understand if you do not decide to trust the reports of the online insider, but it is worth noting that its thesis coincides with a series of easter eggs that have recently appeared from Bluepoint Games. You will find one of them in Demon’s Souls and it manifests itself in a certain piece of sound that has been compared by fans to the sound of Metal Gear Rex from MGS (via Game Rant). Another wink to Internet users is easy to notice in October tweet studies from a year ago – in its content, the developers wish us “metal Halloween“. This choice of words is hardly accidental, but as long as nothing has been confirmed, neither can we be sure of anything. For now, we are waiting impatiently for more news, for example about the platforms on which the game will potentially appear.
