Metal Gear Solid 3 remake reportedly not an exclusive
by Danny Craig ·
Despite rumors of the game being a PlayStation exclusive, Insider Gaming reports that sources have confirmed that this is not the case, with an Xbox and PC release also on its way.
- Reports of an upcoming remake of fan favorite Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater have been circulating for a while, with trusted journalists stating that they had heard from insiders that Konami planned to announce the game as an exclusive to the console at PlayStation's upcoming showcase. Insider Gaming's sources have debunked reports of an exclusivity deal, with the game reportedly also coming to rival platforms, though it's unclear whether the PlayStation platform will receive exclusive marketing rights or additional DLC content, as many titles have in the past.
- It's said that a teaser trailer will still be shown at PlayStation Showcase, but it will not be a full gameplay trailer, as some hoped. Little else appears to have changed since VGC's initial report on the rumors in 2021, with Virtuos reportedly still leading development on the project. Konami is also rumored to be looking to revive the Castlevania franchise, with a new game rumored to be on the horizon, though no one has confirmed if we'll hear more about the title just yet.
- This will be Konami's first return to the video game industry with a new Metal Gear series release since Metal Gear Survive in 2018. Survive was the first game in the series to be developed without the involvement of series creator Hideo Kojima, following his departure from Konami, and it received widespread criticism for its poor gameplay and "generic" zombie theme. Konami appears to be joining the remake trend with the upcoming release of the beloved Silent Hill 2 remake shortly. It is likely to be much easier to create than attempting to write a new story without the input of the creators themselves.

- Grand Theft Auto 6 could be released before March 2025. Take-Two Interactive expects net bookings to reach $8 billion by the end of its fiscal year in 2025, up from $5.3 billion in 2023. Many people believe that GTA 6 is one of the "several groundbreaking titles" that the company intends to release before that date.
- According to the voice actor for the titular character, Alan Wake 2 could be released in October. In a recent podcast, Alan Wake's voice actor, Matthew Porretta, may have accidentally revealed that the game's release date is set for October before claiming that an NDA prevents him from confirming or denying anything about the project.
