The official Metal Gear account on Twitter explained why they are using a Delta symbol in the title.
The Delta symbol (Δ) was chosen because its meaning fits the concept of the remake project. Delta means “change” or “difference” without changing structure.
Konami has also confirmed in a post on their website that the remake will have the original character voices.
The remake will star the original voice characters, rich storyline and expansive features of combat survival in harsh environments evolved with unprecedented graphics and immersive sound.
As mentioned in the development team message posted above, a remaster of Metal Gear Solid 1 through 3 has been unveiled as well, called Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Volume 1 (implying more will come at a later date). The collection will launch in the autumn of this year. Aside from MGS1, 2 and 3, this collection will also include Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. Furthermore, Konami has confirmed that aside from the digital version, a physical edition will be made available as well. You can check out the dedicated section on Konami’s official site here.
