Metal Gear Solid Games Temporary Delisted

Metal Gear Solid

Konami has announced that it will temporarily remove MEtal Gear Solid games from digital storefronts because of a licensing issue.

“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,” the statement said.

Which products will be temporarily removed?
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD Edition (PS3)
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD Edition (PS3)
  • Metal Gear Solid HD Edition (PS3)
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty HD Edition (Vita)
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater HD Edition (Vita)
  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (Vita)
  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection (PlayStation Now)
  • Metal Gear Solid HD Edition: 2 & 3 (Xbox 360)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D (3DS)
  • Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance (GOG.com)
  • Metal Gear Solid 2 HD for Shield TV (Nvidia Shield)
  • Metal Gear Solid 3 HD for Shield TV (Nvidia Shield)

“We sincerely ask for your patience and understanding as we work towards making these products available for purchase once again.”

While it isn’t the first time real-world footage has been the cause of a game being pulled, the footage used in Metal Gear Solid is minuscule. Konami has not indicated when we’ll be seeing the games return to digital storefronts.
