Hideo Kojima, brainchild of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, has been busy squelching rumors today via Twitter. Apparently, the rumor mill churned out news that Kojima Productions was working on a full remake of Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2. In a recent post on twitter Kojima stated:
“There’s a rumor about remaking MGS1+2, but that’s not tru. It has been modified in the thread or something.”

Straight from the horse’s mouth; There will not be an official Metal Gear Solid 1 or 2 remake any time soon…from Kojima Productions that is. Kojima went on to say:
“I wouldn’t mind if talented creator from outside studio making this happen. That’s what I answered during the itw.”
Well, well, well, those are some interesting words! Is Mr. Kojima implying that some third party team may be remaking Metal Gear Solid 1 & 2? Probably not, but it is very interesting to note that Kojima would allow an outside studio to tinker with one of his beloved creations. Kojima is famous for being a perfectionist when it comes to the development of his games, so even implying that another studio could handle a remake is pretty big news in itself.
What about you?
Are you crushed to know that there will not be a Kojima Productions Metal Gear Solid 1 & 2? Do you think we’ll be seeing remakes of these two famous titles any time soon?
