Metal Gear Solid 4, 5, and Peace Walker References Found in MGS Collection Files

Metal Gear Solid enthusiasts recently found themselves in a whirlwind of excitement as a Reddit user shared intriguing images, purportedly revealing references to Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Solid 5, and Metal Gear Solid: The Peace Walker in the documents of the MGS master collection volume 1. This revelation has stirred up heated debates and wild speculations among gamers.

If these are real images, they may mean many things. The other interpretation says that, perhaps, they were just leftovers of the implementation stage, maybe used in a testing process. However, it can also mean that there is an upcoming second volume of the Metal Gear Solid Master Collection featuring these classics.

The new Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1 that went on sale this week got huge praise. The collection boasts classics like Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Metal Gear Solid (including VR Missions), as well as the HD editions of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Significantly, Metal Gear Solid 5 is available on modern gaming consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One. Nevertheless, the lack of Metal Gear Solid 4 and Peace Walker on modern consoles is a constant frustration for followers.

Interestingly, during the development phase of Metal Gear Solid 4: There was an exciting look at a prospect that would help Microsoft’s Xbox 360 users. As reported by Steven L Kent (The Ultimate History of Video Games, Volume 2), one of the assistants involved in the production of Metal Gear Solid 4 said that the game was “running beautifully and smoothly” on Xbox 360. Nevertheless, this sweet illusion never came to be.

The hurdle here was the limitation on the number of discs that can store information of 8.7GB. On the contrary, PS3 games relied on BD-ROM discs providing an impressive maximum of 54 GB. Porting “Metal Gear Solid 4” to Xbox 360 might involve splitting up the game across several discs but that is not something Konami was ready to engage in.

Jack Tretton of Sony pointed out that “Metal Gear Solid 4 will run on PS3 only; apart from Blu-ray, there is no other way it can be played.”

Fans are expecting more as recently, new findings in the MGS Master Collection Volume 1 files have renewed their faith. Are such citations then an indication that Metal Gear Solid 4: Peace Walker will one day get a release on systems beyond its original hardware? Metal Gear Solid fans can only hope that they will soon experience those timeless games they grew up with as more and more news about possible announcements starts to circulate among gaming enthusiasts.

Gamers are expectant looking forward to the possibility that Metal Gear Solid 4, 5, and the Master Collection may be included in future volumes. The possibility of replaying them, however old, on modern software, looks as though it will bring a bright day in this legendary, MGS series.
