As the Metal Gear series celebrates its 35th birthday, Konami has confirmed some very welcome news regarding legacy titles in the series. The publisher has taken to Twitter to reveal its intention of bringing back delisted Metal Gear games, which should include the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection on Xbox.
Back in November of last year, Konami announced that it was "working on renewing the licenses for select historical archive footage" featured within classic Metal Gear titles, which led to the delisting of the HD Collection on Xbox, amongst other storefronts.
At the time, the company stressed that it was doing its upmost to bring the games back ASAP, so it was never their intention to delist them permanently. After eight months or so, it's nice to get confirmation of their intentions, even though we don't have a solid date for any re-listings just yet. Remember, this collection is backwards compatible, so once it returns, it'll be playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as well.
Are you excited to see these come back to the store in the future? Let us know!
