Don’t watch now, but there is another remake of a classic game reportedly in the works.
Earlier this month, VGC claimed that they were told by publication sources that Konami is working on a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, a fan favorite among gamers. To be precise, Konami was not actually leading the development – this task was given to another studio, Virtuos.
Founded in 2004, Virtuos is headquartered in Singapore and has worked on the development of around 70 games over the years. Now, ComicBook believes it has found additional evidence to corroborate this report.
The post points to the LinkedIn page of Virtuos chief software engineer Zhiyang Li. In the experience section, Li mentions working on an unannounced AAA action-adventure game remake for a period of nine months, d ” October 2018 to June 2019.
During this time, Li led a team of 12 engineers, artists and level designers, and helped upgrade the game engine to support 4K on some platforms.
Konami has been a bit more lax in its willingness to license its properties lately, allowing others to work with its coveted intellectual property. Earlier this year, for example, Konami partnered with Bloober Team, fueling speculation that a new Silent Hill game is in the works. There would also be a new Castlevania game in the mix, described as a “reimagining” of the series.
Of the three – Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill or Castlevania – which would you be most excited to have a new entry?
