It looks like the latest Video Games Chronicle report of a Chinese studio hired to do it Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater‘s remake might turn out to be true.
Earlier this month, VGC claimed it learned from its sources that Konami was preparing for a resuscitation Solid metal gear, Castlevania, and silent Hill. While rumors of various Solid metal gear Remake projects have been circulating for a while, VGC’s sources went a step further, saying that Konami hired Chinese studio Virtuos to do the job, and the project in question is specifically a Solid metal gear 3 make new.
Now an internet detective has found a LinkedIn profile of a former Virtuos developer and mentions an “unannounced AAA action-adventure remake”. Hmmm.
As discovered by Twitter user Faizan Shaikh, Zhiyang Li’s profile states that he worked with Virtuoso in two different roles between April 2016 and June 2019. In the second position, which he held in October 2018, he worked as a senior software engineer on the unannounced remake. If the report from VGC is correct, Solid metal gear 3 Remake has been in development for about three years.
Li says he has provided “strong support for AAA quality art production.” He also worked on updating the development engine to “support 4K on certain platforms”.
So Virtuos Studios are working on remake, according to this LinkedIn profile, probably Metal Gear Solid 3 … Previously it was reported by @AndyPlaytonic.
