Following a five-year hiatus since the launch of Metal Gear: Survive, Konami is gearing up to unveil a fresh take on the beloved 2004 classic, Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater.

The game is scheduled for release this year. The eagerly anticipated title, called Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater (Δ pronounced as delta), promises to bring in a breath of fresh air into the franchise, unlike the poorly received 2018’s Metal Gear Solid: Survive. This new game will be available on Playstation, Xbox and Steam once launched.

The franchise stands as a one among the many beloved games in all of gaming history, as it is cherished by fans worldwide. Comprising five mainline instalments complemented by a myriad of spin-offs and ancillary projects, this adventure-action stealth game enriches a universe meticulously crafted by Hideo Kojima. Although recent years have seen a hiatus in new entries, the enduring legacy of the series continues to captivate audiences.

Metal Gear Solid Δ: Snake Eater – worth a remake?

The announcement of the upcoming remake of the game during Sony’s PlayStation showcase in May stirred considerable excitement among fans and gamers. Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater has been regarded as the pinnacle of the series by critics and is an inaugural chapter in Metal Gear universe’s intricate chronology, and it’s only fitting for Snake Eater to lead the charge in the remake realm for Konami.

Initial glimpses of the much anticipated game offers a view into the engine of the game which is Unreal Engine 5, some tantalizing visuals of nature and the elements involved. The highlight of the footage lies in showcasing Snake (the protagonist) stealthily navigating through familiar jungle terrain, and his combat skills. These previews not only highlight the game’s stunning graphical overhaul but also unveil significant enhancements to gameplay mechanics since the initial 2004 title. Among these is Snake’s newfound ability to seamlessly maneuver while crouched—a feature practically standard in contemporary stealth experiences but was conspicuously absent in the original release.

The success of Delta could wield considerable influence, potentially charting the course for remakes of other Metal Gear Solid titles. Fans hold their breath in anticipation, eager to see if Konami can recapture the essence of the beloved classic while ushering it into the modern gaming landscape. Perhaps 2024 will mark the resurgence of Metal Gear Solid, reigniting the world’s fascination with this iconic franchise.

In addition to the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 3 remake in development, there’s also buzz surrounding the imminent release of the Master Collection Vol.2. It appears that 2024 is shaping up to be a bustling year for the beloved stealth franchise. Following the split between Kojima and Konami just prior to Metal Gear Solid 5‘s launch, many enthusiasts worried about the series’ future, but this remake hopefully makes the cut.

The lukewarm reception to Metal Gear’s Survive that featured zombie elements unlike the other Metal Gear games seemed to put the series on hiatus, yet Konami’s recent actions suggest a change in direction. While neither the Vol.2 of the Master Collection nor the Metal Gear Solid Snake remake are officially slated for 2024, there’s a strong possibility that at least one of these ventures will see the light of day by the year end.
