It is claimed that the company also secured similar agreements for the Silent Hill and Castlevania series.
Recent rumors suggest that Sony has some form of an exclusive deal with Konami for the Metal Gear series.
That's according to Windows Central's editor Jez Corden, who responded to a tweet from blogger Idle Sloth claiming that Sony is planning to showcase an exclusive remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 at an upcoming event this summer.
Corden confirmed that Sony has some form of an exclusive deal with Konami for the Metal Gear series, though he did not specify if it pertains to the rumored remake or another project.
The journalist also reported that similar exclusive agreements had been made for other Konami franchises, including Silent Hill and the unannounced Castlevania title.
In October 2022, it was announced that a remake of Silent Hill 2 would be released exclusively for the PS5 and PC. However, the horror title will only be available on Sony's console for a year before being released on PC. It's also possible that Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania games could follow a similar release pattern, with a delayed release on PC following their initial console launch.
Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake, numerous gaming publications have been reporting on rumors and speculation surrounding the project for years. The date of PlayStation's summer showcase, where such an announcement might occur, is currently unknown.
