There’s been more fuel to the fire that Chinese studio Virtuos may be working on a remake of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

NOW READ: Holiday Deals now live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Holiday discounts early, with many more to follow.

As reported by VGC, a listing has been spotted on the LinkedIn profile of the studio’s lead programmer Zhiyang Li.  He refrains from mentioning MGS 3 specifically. However, he mentions he’s worked on an “unannounced 3A Action Adventure game remake”. According to the listing, Li worked on this mysterious project for nine months, beginning as early as October 2018.

There’s some other tiny nuggets, including mentions of “set piece destruction” and that the project had to support 4K. Of course, there’s no guarantee that this is indeed the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake at all, but the timing is interesting to note.

Previously, Virtous has worked on ports of many recent games like Dark Souls Remastered and The Outer Worlds for the Nintendo Switch. The team has also worked on several other high-profile games like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

Neither Konami nor Virtuos have confirmed the reports at the time of writing. Last weekend, it was reported the former is planning to revive Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill. The reports also claimed that Konami are considering smaller-scale Metal Gear Solid remasters before the big MGS3 remake. We’ll let you know if anything comes of these rumours.

In the meantime, here’s what our Josh feels a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater will bring to the table. Or jungle, if you will.
