Konami has been speaking a little more on its upcoming MGS3 remake – Metal Gear Solid Delta Snake Eater – and revealed that other games in the series could get a similar remake treatment.
Speaking to IGN, the team behind the announcement offered up a little more detail on the highly anticipated project – and teased that more remakes could be on the way, depending on MGS Delta’s reception. “Regarding remakes of previous games in the series other than Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, we will listen to player demand and consider accordingly,” the unnamed Konami spokesperson said.
As for Metal Gear Solid Delta itself, the spokesperson also confirmed that the main developers – only thus far referred to as ‘the development team’ – will be Konami developers “involved in the production of past [games in the] Metal Gear series” working with Virtuos – confirming previous rumours of the studio working on such remakes. As you’d probably expect however, given their messy and well-publicised breakup, the original game’s director Hideo Kojima and art director Yoji Shinkawa will not be involved in the project in any way – with both now at the former’s Kojima Productions.
Konami’s spokesperson also confirmed to IGN that the plot of MGS3 won’t be changed in MGS Delta, and fans of David Hayter as the lead character can also breathe a sigh of relief, as the game looks set to use the voices from the original game, rather than re-recording new dialogue. But the name Metal Gear Solid Delta was chosen because “Delta is a character from the Greek alphabet that means ‘change’ or ‘difference’ in mathematics and variables, and also has the meaning of changing an amount without changing the structure.”
There’s no release date just yet for Metal Gear Solid Delta Snake Eater – but the remake will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC whenever it arrives.
