A new tip suggests that a Metal Gear Solid reboot might be happening soon. This is coming from David Hayter, the man behind Solid Snake’s voice. Hayter, while speaking in an interview with Dan Allen Gaming was asked about what the future of the Metal Gear Solid remake or reboot is going to be like, and he talked about how at first he thought it was just a rumour, but then he received a message from an industry source that talked about how the remake might be happening.
Now, a remake means a remaster than a reboot. This means that we could get the classic Metal Gear Solid games with updated assets and graphics, but hoping for a full-blown remake like Resident Evil 2 and 3 might not be on the case. Still, it is a good sign, to say the least, especially for the fans of the game.
Normally, we would suggest taking such news with a pinch of salt because such rumours are always flying around but the fact that this is coming from David Hayter and not someone random, it only goes to suggest that a remake or a reboot is in the talks, and David Hayter is going to be involved in the project to some capacity.
This is also good news for the Metal Gear Solid series that has been on the back burner since the Metal Gear Survive; Metal Gear Survive was also the first game that was released after the series’ master Hideo Kojima left and started his own studio. Needless to say, Survive was a disaster, so it is interesting to see how Konami is actually going to go forward if they decide to reboot the MGS franchise, or even if they decide to make a remake.
Currently, the latest entry in the original Metal Gear Solid franchise is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and the game is now available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Meanwhile, you can watch the entire interview below.
