No video game company has purposefully dismantled its own legacy more than Konami. A few years ago, the company got rid of collaborator Hideo Kojima, essentially ending the Metal Gear franchise as we knew it, and shelved further development on a lot of their top-tier console titles like Silent Hill in order to focus on gambling games like slot machines.
However, a new report is indicating that the company may have had a change of heart as they are allegedly remaking the seminal PS2 game, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. According to VGC:
The new project is currently in early development and multiple sources suggested it would be centred around fan-favourite entry Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, rather than the original MGS. Konami also intends to release remasters of the original Metal Gear Solid games for modern consoles, ahead of the larger project, we understand.
Remakes are all the rage these days with the arrival of the next-gen consoles. Rumors of a remake of the 1998 classic Metal Gear Solid have been circulating online for quite a while but this report indicating that a Snake Eater remake takes precedence is somewhat unexpected. Nonetheless, it should all be very lucrative for the company as these games are so sought-after.
