Rumours of a next-gen remake for Metal Gear Solid have recently started to gain traction, as leakers have suggested that a remake of the original PlayStation 1 game, as well as subsequent entries in the series, might be in the works. These rumours have now been given even more validity, as Solid Snake voice actor and series staple David Hayter has confirmed via his industry sources that the project may actually be in the works. Speaking in an interview with Dan Allen Gaming, Hayter said that he'd heard rumours about the project before leakers started to suggest a remake was in development.
However, Hayter did make clear that even his confirmation from sources was "still a rumour," with no concrete answer as to whether or not the project is in development. But, this adds another layer of credibility to what is becoming an increasingly likely rumour, especially with the amount of talk around what's going on with the Metal Gear Solid franchise. The official Twitter account for the series recently posted a number of cryptic tweets responding to a seemingly in-universe account, although these tweets primarily referenced the second game in the series, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.
Yet another rumour surface recently regarding new content in the MGS universe, supposedly outlining a new collection coming to PS5. According to a leaker on 4chan, the new collection will contain remasters of Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, with a remaster of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots available separately. Although this leak, like others surrounding the franchise, is not backed up by any evidence, it's looking increasingly likely that some sort of remake/remaster project is truly in progress.
