It looks like the first Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2 will be re-releasing on PC soon, according to recent ratings.  

The ratings come from the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee (via Gematsu (opens in new tab)), which lists the original Metal Gear (opens in new tab) that first released on the MSX back in 1987, along with Metal Gear Solid (opens in new tab) and Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (opens in new tab) for PC. 

Outside of Metal Gear Solid, it also has a PC rating for the Konami Collector's Series: Castlevania and Contra (opens in new tab). The collection, which first released on PC back in 2002, includes Castlevania, Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest, and Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse, along with Contra and Super C. 

Both of the early Metal Gear Solid games have come to PC the past, but since you can't currently buy them from any storefronts, the re-release would finally give players an easy way to play on PC again. It's something MSG fans have no doubt been hoping for, and if the ratings are an indication, we could see the games return to PC very soon. 

Interestingly there's a bit of a buzz surrounding Metal Gear Solid at the moment, with news surfacing that claims the original Metal Gear Solid is reportedly getting a PS5 exclusive remake. The report also alleges that Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and 4 will be getting the HD remaster treatment. While nothing is confirmed as of yet, it looks like we could be seeing a lot more of Snake in the future.

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
