Metal Gear Solid could be seeing new life on the PC platform if new rumors involving the first two entries in the series prove to be accurate.
Outside of the dismal release of Metal Gear Survive a few years back, Konami hasn’t been doing much of anything with what is likely the publisher’s most iconic property. However, if new rumors prove to be true, it sounds as though that lack
In a new rumor that is stemming from Resetera, multiple forum users have claimed that Konami will soon be bringing the first two entries in the Metal Gear Solid saga to PC at some point in the future. A user by the name of Potterson, who is said to have leaked some correct information in the past, claimed that both MGS and MGS2: Sons of Liberty will be coming to the platform, but declined to say when it could be happening (assuming they have this knowledge). Potterson was then backed up by a moderator on the thread by the name of Jawmuncher who said they could also verify this info.
Obviously, there is a lot to break down here and what’s being said might not have much weight. After all, forum rumors like this can have spotty track records from time to time, so don’t take any of this as complete truth just yet. That being said, Potterson does has leaked information that proved to be true in the past, so this could also stand to be real.
It’s also just not outside the realm of possibility that Konami would opt to do this. For those unaware, Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 have each been on PC in the past, although these iterations are both quite old. Still, the fact that each game has come to the platform previously and the rumor at the source of this story simply purports that Konami is looking to port these older PC versions forward to make them compatible with modern setups isn’t anything too bold to claim. Not to mention, Konami itself has been porting a lot of its older games to newer hardware in recent years, so the decision from them on a publishing level to do something like this with Metal Gear Solid would be in line with what they’ve already been doing.
If this rumor ends up being true, we’ll surely hear something from Konami soon enough. And if not, well, at least Metal Gear Solid 5 is still playable on PC right now.
