This could indicate that publisher Konami may be ready to revive not only the first game in the Metal Gear Solid series, but its first sequel, and the original 1988 MSX game as well.

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty received a PC port in 2003 in the form of Metal Gear Solid: Substance, which expanded on the sequel with additional game modes, small dialogue changes, and a slight tweak of the controls.

Substance also added 350 VR missions and 150 Alternative missions. The Alternative missions were set in areas from the main story campaign and allowed players to engage in them as either Solid Snake or Raiden.

The first two Metal Gear Solid games have been collected and re-released in ports before, such as 2011's Metal Gear Solid: HD Collection for PS3, PS Vita, and Xbox 360, as well 2013's Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection on PS3.

YouTube channel RedGamingTech has also claimed that Metal Gear Solid will come back to PC, remade from the ground up for that platform and PS5 according to their source.

Konami has usually repackaged the old PC ports of its games in the past for a new release, but more details could be revealed at the Tokyo Games Show this week. The publisher will be present for two panels from September 26-27. For more, check out the full Tokyo Game Show schedule.
