Metal Gear Solid remake teased by voice actor

Metal Gear Solid remake teased by voice actor

Don't give us hope.

A Metal Gear Solid remake is the dictionary definition of an average gamer's white whale. Not in the literal sense of a light coloured marine mammal in the Arctic Ocean, but the perpetual leaks about the possibility with no results would be enough to turn anyone into a wizened sea captain.

Recently, Areajugones reported that there is a Metal Gear Solid remake in the works and a reveal is set at some point in the early summer. And, fans were nearly frothing at the mouth when they saw Bluepoint Games' holiday card featuring another unannounced remaster in a grey box tied with a red ribbon.

Speculation is speculation, yet a few key figures have shared what might be subtle confirmations. Producer Noriaki Okamura said that 2023 will see the release of something that has been "long-awaited" and now Raiden voice actor Quinton Flynn suggested that gamers should have their eyes peeled for an announcement in the next couple of weeks.

Silent Hill: Townfall, from the developer behind Stories Untold and Observation, was announced last year. Check out the trailer below:

It's the 10th anniversary of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on 19 February, as a fan pointed out in the replies of one of Flynn's Tweets, and another asked if there would be a sequel to be announced in an upcoming showcase. "[Stay] tuned for things to be announced in the coming weeks," replied the actor.

Crucially, Flynn played Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. If he were to be reprising his role in a remake, it would be one of these. Alternatively, Flynn might be voicing Raiden again in a totally new entry to the Metal Gear canon, similar to Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinée which was a digitised version of the Sons of Liberty comic book. Personally, the publicness of the announcement and the fact that it hasn't been swiftly deleted doesn't fill me with a lot of positive thinking, but I've been wrong before.
