Virtuos, rumored to be remaking Metal Gear Solid 3, confirms they are developing an action-adventure game remake.
Twitter user Faizan Shaikh discovered references to the remake on Virtuos lead programmer Zhiyang Li’s LinkedIn profile. In Li’s description of the role of his job, he states his involvement on the project dates back to 2018. Other details provided in Li’s description include AAA quality art production and set piece destruction. In addition, Li confirms the remake will have 4K graphics on certain platforms.
Although the title of the game remains unannounced, previous rumors suggest it is Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Anonymous sources recently told Video Games Chronicle that Konami is working on new games for some of their largest franchises. In addition to Castlevania and Silent Hill, rumors also suggest remasters for the original three Metal Gear Solid games.
In particular, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is reportedly receiving a full ground-up remake. VGC’s sources add that Virtuos will reportedly head the development of the game. In the past, Virtuos also worked on the Nintendo Switch port of Dark Souls Remastered. The company additionally contributed to other high profile AAA games in the past as well.
Reports also suggest that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima will act as an advisor to Virtuos on the game. For now, that rumor remains unconfirmed. Konami also has not officially announced the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake. However, the confirmation of Virtuos’ involvement with a AAA remake helps solidify the legitimacy of the rumors.
