Konami has decided to remove select Metal Gear Solid games from digital distribution due to licenses expiring for some archive historical footage. It is unclear when the affected titles will return.
Metal Gear Solid is getting a remake that will see markedly improved graphics thanks to the use of Unreal Engine 4 - but the project has not been sanctioned by Konami and does have an uncertain fate.
Hideo Kojima was invited to receive an award at The Game Awards for his latest work, 'Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain'. However, Konami barred him from attending and accepting the award.
