The long-rumoured remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater will reportedly release in 2024 according to Video Games Chronicle journalist Andy Robinson. A re-release of older Metal Gear Solid titles is also apparently in the works at Konami. The projects will likely be revealed at E3 2023 which Konami is reportedly attending.
In a recent tweet, Robinson stated that the remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 was “now a 2024 title”, suggesting that Konami probably had plans to launch it sometime this year but it’s now pushed to next year. The developer behind the ambitious remake is believed to be Virtuous Studios, according to a previous report by Robinson. An employee at Virtuous claimed to be working on an “unannounced AAA remake” which many quickly assumed was Metal Gear Solid 3.

In addition to the Metal Gear Solid franchise reportedly having a big comeback story at E3 this year, it’s rumoured that Konami will also reveal a new Castlevania game that’s apparently a reboot of the series. We don’t know much about this new Castlevania game including the developer behind the game but rumours suggest that it could be handled by Konami’s internal studios.
If Konami is attending E3 then we can also hopefully expect to hear more about the numerous Silent Hill games currently in development. The Medium studio Bloober Team is currently working on a remake of Silent Hill 2 which doesn’t have a release date yet but it will be a timed console exclusive on PS5 (it will also launch on PC). NeoBards Entertainment is also working on Silent Hill F, the cryptic next entry in the franchise, along with Higurashi writer Ryukishi07 penning the story.
Publisher Annapurna Interactive is handling Silent Hill: Townfall with developer No Code, an interactive horror experience that’s rumoured to be episodic.
With E3 fast approaching this June, hopefully we’ll have some exciting news regarding all of Konami’s rumoured and confirmed projects.
