Don’t worry my fellow Metal Gear fans, Konami isn’t dropping a nuke on the series, they’re just having some issues with renewing licenses.
Believe it or not, Konami actually cares about the Metal Gear IP, even if they tossed its creator to the curb and the fact that they created Metal Gear Survive.
While they didn’t give us a timeline of when the following Metal Gear games will return, it should be soony. Probably?
Thank you for playing the METAL GEAR series.
We are currently working on renewing the licenses for select historical archive footage used in-game, therefore, we have made the temporary decision to begin suspending the sale of METAL GEAR SOLID 2, METAL GEAR SOLID 3 and all products that include these games from digital storefronts globally starting from November 8th, 2021.
We sincerely ask for your patience and understanding as we work towards making these products available for purchase once again.
