Rumor: Demon's Souls Devs Prepare Metal Gear Solid Remake for PS5

According to the info from the Internet, Bluepoint Games, the developers of the new Demon's Souls, has been working on a remake of the first Metal Gear Solid for several years.

  1. A reliable informant claims that a Metal Gear Solid remake is in the works since 3 years;
  2. Theproject is said to be developed by Bluepoint Games, a studio that worked on the refreshed versions of Uncharted, Shadow of the Colossus or Demon's Souls;
  3. Rumors on the web would coincide with one of the studio's tweets, in which the developers clearly suggest something.

The Metal Gear Solid series is a unique experience that has been burned in the minds of gamers. Meanwhile, its creator, Hideo Kojima, has set off with other unusual projects - the latest of which is Death Stranding. Nevertheless, fans could enjoy recent re-releases of the first and second installment of MGS, which appeared on GOG, and even now they can still hope for something more, if we believe the reports of a trusted online informant.

User Moore's Law Is Dead, an insider famous mainly for having anticipated (based on his sources) the announcement of God of War: Ragnarok a year ahead of the fact, published a podcast on his youtube channel a few days ago, in which he informed, among other things, about the ongoing work on remake of the first installment of Metal Gear Solid.

The title is said to have been in the making for 3 years now, prepared by Bluepoint Games - known for all kinds of remasters and remakes developed for PlayStation consoles, such as Shadow of the Colossus (PS4) and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (also PS4). The refreshed MGS was to be developed in parallel with the new Demon's Souls, and Mark Cerny, the main architect of PS4 and PS5 systems, is also involved in the development process.

We'll understand if you do not trust the reports of an Internet insider, but it's worth noting that his theory coincides with a series of easter eggs, which recently appeared on Bluepoint Games' website. One of them can be found in Demon's Souls, and it is revealed in a certain sound sample, which was compared by fans to the sound of Metal Gear Rex from MGS (via Game Rant). The next nod towards internet users is easy to see in studio's October tweet from a year ago, in which the developers wish us "Metal Halloween". This choice of words is unlikely to be accidental, but as long as nothing is confirmed, we can't be sure of anything either. For the time being, we're looking forward to more news, such as the platforms on which the game will possibly appear.

His adventure with journalism began with a personal blog, the name of which is no longer worth quoting. Then he interpreted Iranian dramas and the Joker, writing for cinematography journal, which, sadly, no longer exists. His writing credentials include a degree in film studies, but his thesis was strictly devoted to video games. He has been writing for Gamepressure since March 2020, first writing a lot about movies, then in the newsroom, and eventually, he became a specialist in everything. He currently edits and writes articles and features. A long-time enthusiast of the most bizarre indie games and arthouse cinema. He idolizes surrealism and postmodernism. He appreciates the power of absurdity. Which is probably why he also tried soccer refereeing for 2 years (with so-so results). He tends to over-philosophize, so watch out.
