It's being reported today by a couple of sources that Konami is currently working on a new series of remasters for Metal Gear Solid, and the slightly strange part is that it appears to be for Metal Gear Solid 1, 2 and 3.

VGC was the first to report this earlier today, stating that Chinese studio Virtuos is working on a new version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, while known leaker AestheticGamer backed up VGC's claims a short while later:

"VGC talks about Metal Gear Solid 1-3 Remasters (not remakes), new remastered version. I know that to be 100% true, I had heard that for a fact (and not surprised I'm not the only one who heard about it)..."

"The plan is to release the three remasters separately, but also together as a collection (where also get the MSX versions of Metal Gear 1+2 if buy together). Just chiming in there, that is something coming."

AestheticGamer went on to state that the collection would be coming to "pretty much everything" in terms of platforms, so that sounds like a safe bet we'll be seeing it on Xbox. He also suggested that "higher-res" consoles (presumably meaning Xbox Series X, Series S and PS5) were planned, along with PC.

Of course, we've already seen remasters of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 on Xbox 360 in the past, and they're still available to play via backwards compatibility in 2022. Even so, it sounds pretty likely this new collection is the real deal!

Interested in a new remastered collection for these three games? Let us know in the comments.
