There have been persistent rumours that Konami is working on a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Fuel was added to the fire when Donna Burke, a singer and voice actress, shared a picture of herself holding a folder with “Snake Eater” written on it.
Many speculated that Burke had accidentally revealed the news, but Mason Lieberman, the composer, was quick to deny that the new project is a remake. While it is related to Snake Eater, Konami has yet to announce what it actually is. Lieberman’s tweet below confirms this and readers should also take note of his new Twitter name which continues to deny the rumours.
It’s no surprise that Lieberman’s tweet was a huge letdown for many Metal Gear fans. It’s important to note that this denial doesn’t necessarily mean that all of the previous rumours about Metal Gear Solid 3 are false, but just that this specific one didn’t work out. It’s possible that the project Burke and Lieberman are working on is a covers album or part of another Konami plan. Fans will have to keep waiting for Konami to make an announcement.
Over the past few years, Konami has shifted away from creating and publishing new big games, opting to focus on smaller games and compilations of older ones. This has left fans of Silent Hill, Castlevania, and Metal Gear wondering about the future of these franchises. However, things began to change last year when Konami announced several new Silent Hill projects. Fans have been eagerly awaiting news on when Metal Gear might be next, but nothing has been officially announced. Hopefully, rumours about a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake will turn out to be true, giving fans something to anticipate.
