Rumours have it that some previously delisted Metal Gear Solid games are returning to the stores.
The official Metal Gear Twitter account posted a tweet celebrating the 35th anniversary of their popular series mentioned, “We ask for your patience as preparations are underway to make the temporarily removed titles available again.”
We believe this is referring to Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 which have to be removed from digital stores last year after issues with licensing on historical footage.
Konami spoke about the time saying, “We are currently working on renewing the licences 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, 3 and all products that include these games from digital storefronts globally starting from 8th November 2021,”
Today marks the 35th anniversary of the #METALGEAR series! Thank you to everyone that enjoyed and celebrated the series so far. We ask for your patience as preparations are underway to make the temporarily removed titles available again. #MG35th pic.twitter.com/KxXoYfCAGB

This issue affected both games in both of the standalone releases and collections for Xbox 360, PS3, and Nintendo 3DS amongst other platforms.
However, it seems like this issue is in the final stages of being resolved if not already.
Hopefully, we will see an MGS game appear on Sony’s PS Plus service soon as it is most definitely a wounder there is no MGS title on there at the moment.
