Konami will relist Metal Gear games they pulled over licensed footage

Metal Gear

Konami announced they’re going to relist various Metal Gear games they previously delisted for various reasons.

Konami temporarily pulled multiple versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 from digital sale back in November of last year, due to Konami needing to relicense footage that had been used in the games.

Now, with the 35th anniversary of the franchise, Konami appears to be close to a solution. Konami made a post celebrating the anniversary of the series as well as discussing the return of games that were previously delisted.

“The METAL GEAR series which launched on July 13, 1987, celebrates its 35th anniversary today,” a post from Konami reads. “Preparations are underway to resume sales of the titles that have been temporarily suspended.”

So it would appear that Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 will be returning to digital stores across previous platforms. Hopefully, the return of both games will lead to a possible PC release of the two iconic titles – as previous ratings have suggested.
