When is the Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater release date? After the poor reception of Metal Gear Survive, many fans are excited to see Konami bring back the franchise with a remake of one of the most iconic entries in the series. You’re in the right place to find out everything we know so far about Metal Gear Solid Delta Snake Eater, the expected release date, and the delta meaning in the game name.
There have long been rumors of a remake of Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater, especially since Konami unveiled a number of Silent Hill games in 2022. Thanks to the PlayStation Showcase 2023, we now have a better idea of what we can expect from the MGS Delta Snake Eater.
Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater release date
Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater is expected to release in 2024 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC platforms. While the game was revealed for PS5 at the PlayStation Showcase 2023 event, Konami has confirmed MGS Snake Eater is coming to Xbox and PC.
This remake of the original title features the original voice actors fans will recognise, including the iconic Naked Snake portrayed by David Hayter. Metal Gear Solid Delta Snake Eater will also update the graphics and gameplay to more modern standards, while keeping with the original design philosophy fans will expect.
Alongside Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater, Konami will also be releasing a collection of other MGS games, the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol.1. This means fans will be able to play updated versions of Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2, and Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake ahead of the Metal Gear Solid Delta Snake Eater release date.
Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater delta meaning
Konami has revealed that the name Metal Gear Solid Delta Snake Eater means remaking the original game without changing the core structure, with delta meaning ‘change’ or ‘difference’.
As such, the remake seeks to modernize the experience without changing what fans fell in love with in the original release. This was expanded upon by the statement from the development team which notes that they are aiming for it to be a “faithful recreation of the original story and game design, while evolving the gameplay with stunning visuals and a seamless user experience.” Likely, this will be similar to the Resident Evil 4 remake by Capcom, which updated the gameplay and graphics to modern standards while maintaining the core of the original title.
That’s all there is to know about the Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater release date, and the delta meaning in the name. Konami is not stopping there though, as they are also bringing back the iconic Silent Hill franchise with the Silent Hill 2 remake release date on the way as well. With the popularity of the original release, hopefully the new Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater will become one of the best PS5 games and best Xbox games out when it arrives.
