Metal Gear Solid 2 and MGS 3 will be temporarily removed from digital storefronts this week

Metal Gear Solid 3
Ben Borthwick Updated on by

Konami has announced that it will be temporarily removing Metal Gear Solid 2 & Metal Gear Solid 3 from digital storefronts from today.

As per the announcement, the reason for the removal is so the developer can renew the licenses for “select historical archive footage” used in the game. Konami calls the move a temporary decision, so presumably they’ll be back soon. However, the company hasn’t given an ETA on when the removed Metal Gear Solid games will return.
