It's that time again. Time to get your hopes up!
Metal Gear Solid

Last year, we were treated to a rumor by VGC that said Konami was working on remasters of the first Metal Gear Solid games, along with a reimagined Castlevania game, plus several new Silent Hill games from various development studios. Well, VGC is back again with another hot Konami rumor that may or may not pan out. Why report on these at all? Because if I have to suffer through this nonsense, then so do you.

According to a new report by VGC, Konami will reveal a new entry from a series that is "loved around the world" at the upcoming Tokyo Game Show. Konami revealed their lineup for the Tokyo Game Show, which includes a number of titles already known about along with a listing that says "Konami new release announced."

One source told VGC that the reveal "is like to be released to a smaller project, rather than Konami's larger planned revivals for Castlevania, Silent Hill, and Metal Gear Solid." Whether or not this rules out the alleged Bloober Team remake of Silent Hill 2, the episodic Silent Hill series allegedly being worked on by Annapurna Interactive, the alleged remasters of the classic Metal Gear Solid games, or the alleged remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater all remain to be seen.

VGC says that these projects could be teased at Tokyo Game Show, with a larger reveal coming later this year at something like a PlayStation State of Play or at The Game Awards in December.

Piggybacking off this latest report comes a statement by the on-again, off-again industry leaker Dusk Golem. Dusk Golem says that his own sources confirmed that remasters of the original Metal Gear Solid games are in development. He continues on to say that the plan is to release each remaster separately and then together as a bundle with the MSX versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.

If none of these things actually pan out, I'm sure I'll see you all again in a few months when another rumor inevitably pops up.
