The First Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake Teaser Was Posted and Then Deleted, it’s Claimed

It’s been claimed that Virtuos, the studio known for porting a large number of games posted a teaser for the Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake earlier today and quickly deleted the tweet.

UPDATE – Proven false –


Unfortunately, it seems like no one was able to grab a screenshot of the post, however, Twitter user @naven0m has claimed to have downloaded the video.

In the video, we see what we believe to be our first look at forest environments from the game. Towards the end of the video, we hear morse code plays revealing the date “December 8th”, which will be the date of The Game Awards where some game announcements are typically made.

It’s unclear if this is an elaborate ruse or not, as it’d be expected that multiple people would have at least screenshotted the apparent tweet. Last last year though, it was spotted on LinkedIn that Virtuos was developing an “unannounced [triple-A] action-adventure game remake” and is targeting 4K resolutions on certain platforms.

Insider Gaming has heard rumors of the Metal Gear franchise being revived in some capacity, but were unable to get additional details.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is a 2004 stealth game developed by Konami Computer Entertainment Japan and published by Konami. The title sold an estimated 5.9 million copies, which was considerably lower than Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, which had sold 7 million copies.

Although maybe not significant, you can see a “The Art of Metal Gear Solid” box in the background of Virtuos’ “A Day in the Life at Virtuos Montreal” YouTube video.
