It seems that the rumors about a Metal Gear Solid 3 New Edition known as Studio Virtus It may be justified. The studio released a mysterious teaser, now removed from YouTube but available online, that hides a message that appears to suggest an official announcement during The Game Awards 2022.
The clip in question was reposted on Twitter by a Zonex fan. As we can see it shows a forest, very similar to the one in Tselinoyarsk from Metal Gear Solid 3. After that the screen turns black and a message is played in Morse code.
Decode the message and the result is “1964 Dec 8, 2022And here comes the fun. 1964 is the year the Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater takes place, while December 8 is the day the 2022 Game Awards will take place. It stands to reason that during the event hosted by Geoff Keighley the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake would be announced .
For now, treat everything with caution, as there is nothing official yet. However, this isn’t the first time that Virtuos, a nearly unknown studio in Singapore that has worked on some of the XCOM 2 and BioShock outlets, has been linked with a possible new release of Metal Gear Solid 3.
In fact, in October last year, a VGC report stated that the studio was working on a Metal Gear Solid 3 remake commissioned by Konami, which also intends to publish remastered versions of the original Metal Gear Solids prior to its release. Later, the information was also confirmed by Eurogamer.net and the well-known Gematsu portal, which usually does not upset the balance with similar rumors and crap, but when it does, it is usually because it is real information.
We also add that Konami is one of the partners that Virtuos has been collaborating with or has collaborated with in the past, as confirmed by Study official website.
On the other hand, Konami with the remake of Silent Hill 2 and other projects related to the franchise has clearly expressed its intention to collaborate and outsource its IP addresses to outside studios. Perhaps in addition to the revival of Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid is also planned, starting with one of the seasons most loved by fans. we will see.
