Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and 3: Snake Eater removed from download platforms, Konami explains

The first ones Metal Gear Solid are not really available on modern consoles, unlike the founding episodes of many cult licenses. And even on older platforms, it will now be difficult to obtain Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear 3: Snake Eater.

Konami has just announced that, from today, the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and 3DS versions, as well as the builds that include them, would disappear from the PlayStation Store, of Microsoft Store, of the’eShop of GOG or from the shop of the NVIDIA SHIELD, until further notice. The publisher justifies himself by explaining that he must work to renew the license rights of historical videos used in these two milestone sections. He should therefore put the digital versions back on sale once the issue is resolved, perhaps without some of the archive footage of the original version.

We are currently working on renewing the licenses for certain historical archive images used in the game. Therefore, we have made a temporary decision to start suspending the sale of METAL GEAR SOLID 2, METAL GEAR SOLID 3 and all products. which include these digital games in online stores around the world from November 8, 2021.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to make these products available for purchase again.

Thank you for your continued support of the METAL GEAR series.

The information has all the same something to brighten the curiosity of the players.
