Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake Accidentally Confirmed by Rumored Developer

A few weeks ago, a report has claimed that Japanese developer/publisher Konami is planning to revive some of its fan-favorite franchises like Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill for PC and current generation of console platform.

There was also a rumor of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater being remade by developer Virtuos, which was yet to be revealed but a newfound LinkedIn description of an employee has almost confirmed previous rumors regarding MGS3.

Working at Singaporean studio Virtuos, lead programmer Zhiyang Li has mentioned developing an "unannounced AAA action-adventure remake" for several platforms since October 2018 and supports 4K graphics, on his LinkedIn profile.

According to early reports, Konami also wants to remaster original Metal Gear Solid games for modern-day consoles. There is only a slim chance that Li and his team is not working on Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake at present.

Twitter user Faizan Shaikh took notice of a Virtuos employee LinkedIn description that hints at MGS3 Remake.

Prior to their alleged involvement in MGS3 Remake project, Virtuos worked on Nintendo Switch version of BioShock Collection, Dark Souls Remastered and The Outer Worlds while supporting content development for major AAA-games.

Thanks to his LinkedIn description page, rumors of Metal Gear Solid 3 remake now have more credibility to go around. Konami also reportedly partnered up with Polish studio Bloober Team for developing a brand-new Silent Hill game.

Metal Gear Solid series is a brainchild of game director Hideo Kojima that introduced a creative way of storytelling and stealth gameplay. MGS3 is considered as one of the greatest games of all time and has been a commercial success.

For years, Konami has rejected several pitch to their popular franchises by outside studios and after disappointing reception of Contra: Rogue Corps and Metal Gear Survive, they have finally opened up about outsourcing their licenses.
