Konami on the meaning behind Metal Gear Solid Delta’s name


Konami finally unveiled Metal Gear Solid 3 remake during the PlayStation Showcase, with one slightly unexpected addition to the title: a Delta symbol. It turns out the triangle in Metal Gear Solid Delta’s name indicates Konami’s approach to remaking the classic stealth game.

“The Delta symbol (Δ) was chosen because its meaning fits the concept of the remake project,” Konami said on the series’ official Twitter page. “Delta means ‘change’ or ‘difference’ without changing structure.”

While that’s true if you Google the word and read the first entry on Wikipedia, the definition is maybe not as fixed as Konami said. Delta has several meanings, and only one of them in mathematics means “change,” usually a change in an object or idea’s status.

Anyway, if you were concerned about Metal Gear Solid 3 remake taking wild liberties with the story, Konami is very keen to assure you that is not going to happen. Right after the PlayStation Showcase, Konami posted a longer message – similar to Bloober Team’s assurances about Silent Hill 2 remake – saying the remake is essentially a remaster. The team won’t be making changes to the story. Instead, it’s an opportunity to bring Big Boss and his Snakelings’ origin story to life with the latest graphics and audio technology.

When that might happen is still anyone’s guess. Metal Gear Solid 3 Delta has no anticipated release date yet, but Konami does plan on launching the original MGS, MGS 2, and MGS 3 in one collection sometime in fall 2023.
