Konami is leading its comeback in the AAA gaming industry with two huge remakes. Both Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid are part of this initiative, with Silent Hill 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 receiving the remake treatment.
The latter recently received a new gameplay trailer, highlighting completely rebuilt environments and models. Neither remake has a concrete release date yet, but PlayStation’s latest teaser hints that both titles are arriving in 2024.
Why it matters: The Metal Gear IP has sold over 60 million units, defining the stealth-action genre during its inception. Similarly, the Silent Hill series is held in high regard as a massive horror game series.
PlayStation has just released a video showcasing the latest games of 2024. The compilation features titles like Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered, and Stellar Blade.
More interesting, however, is the fact that PlayStation includes Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater in the video. While this remake has seemingly been in development for a while, Konami’s marketing has been very limited.
Similarly, the Silent Hill 2 Remake has left fans starved for more information. In this remake’s case, a report recently stated that most of the work has been completed, with Bloober Team now working on bug fixes and polishing.
Anyhow, this teaser suggests a 2024 release is locked in for both games.
With 2024 underway, one of the two remakes could be months away. We expect Konami to begin marketing through a separate showcase or PlayStation’s first State of Play of 2024, possibly revealing the release dates for both games.
Silent Hill 2 Remake is a PlayStation timed-exclusive, while Metal Gear Solid is arriving on all platforms at release.
The former’s marketing contract means that it is likely to show up at a PlayStation event, while Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater could also be a part of the rumored Xbox Developer Direct for this month.
