Metal Gear Solid released on the PlayStation in 1998 and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty following in 2001; both titles would later release on PC as Metal Gear Solid: Integraland Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance.

The info comes by way of the folks over at Gamesradar, which reported that YouTube channel RedGamingTech has a source that revealed that Metal Gear Solid will be getting a full remake rather than simply a remaster.

On September 25, 2020, Konami surprisingly released a number of titles from its back catalogue, including the original Metal Gear (the good MSX2 game, no "feeling asleep" here unfortunately), Metal Gear Solid, and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance. You get Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Contra, and Super C.

The rumor of Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 re-releasing for PC came true together with another old classic, the original Metal Gear.

It should be noted that Metal Gear Solid titles are the original releases and not the updated versions-Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes nor Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance.

Also, if you're wondering, the MGS version on GOG appears to be a port of the PC version from the early 2000s, not the PS1 version. With any luck, today's PC re-release is a complete hit, so much so that it reminds Konami just how much we all love the Metal Gear franchise and would like to see Snake starring in more than Pachinko machines in the near future. The game also supports "multiple" game controllers, according to GOG.

The titles present in the 8-bit Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania and Contra bundle have been available on PC, as both series received anniversary re-releases just a year ago.
