Konami has announced that Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is not only in development for PS5, but also for Xbox Series X|S and Steam, seemingly quashing those recent rumors of new Metal Gear games being exclusive to the PlayStation platform. While there’s no release date for Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater yet, the “faithful remake” of the PS2-era action-adventure game will be complemented by Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1, a new collection of Metal Gear ports that brings MGS1, MGS2, and MGS 3 into a single package. Konami hasn’t confirmed what platforms Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 will be released on, although a letter from the development team seems to suggest that it’s coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
“We thank you and sincerely appreciate your continuous support. Currently, the development team are working together to create an environment where fans can experience and enjoy the METAL GEAR series on the latest platforms,” reads a message from the development team.
“We are remaking Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, one of the most beloved instalments of the METAL GEAR series, revealing the origin story of Snake, as METAL GEAR SOLID Δ: SNAKE EATER. We are working hard for METAL GEAR SOLID Δ: SNAKE EATER to be a faithful recreation of the original story and game design, while evolving the gameplay with stunning visuals and a seamless user experience.”
“Simultaneously, we will deliver the METAL GEAR SOLID: MASTER COLLECTION series, the most complete compilation that celebrates the 35th anniversary of the series. The METAL GEAR SOLID: MASTER COLLECTION allows fans to play the games as they were, as first released on the latest platforms.”
