Konami seems to have a lot planned for the coming years. The company is currently working on reviving the Silent Hill series and has announced several titles at the same time, which once again put us in various horror scenarios.
But Silent Hill may not be the only brand rising from the dead. If a now-deleted teaser trailer turns out to be real, we could be expecting a Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater remake.
The Virtuous development team published a clip and deleted it shortly afterwards. But the internet doesn’t forget and so some people were able to save the clip for posterity:

What’s in the trailer? Not much. Only a short section of a forest can be seen. Afterwards, a Morse code can be heard, which indicates December 8, 1964 in encrypted form. The Game Awards will take place on December 8th, 2022, which is why many fans assume that the reveal of the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake will take place on that day. The year 1964 could play for the year Metal Gear Solid 3 is set.
Already posted seven days ago Virtuous a clip reporting on working life in the developer studio. There, an official art book designed for Metal Gear Solid can be seen on artist Louis Boismenu’s desk next to Konami’s FoxEngine. Many already interpreted this as an imminent announcement of a remake.
The current Silent Hill 2 trailer already reveals the quality of a remake of Metal Gear Solid:

The possible veracity of the rumor
What are the pros? There have been several reports in the past that a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3 is in development. Sources also rumored that several Silent Hill titles are in the works, which has only recently turned out to be true. So it could also be that a remake of Metal Gear Solid will follow soon.
What speaks against it? On Twitter, a user found out that the image from the teaser came from a free Unreal Engine 5 Pack comes from, to which every development studio would have free access. It is strange that the development team does not use their own material but publicly available images, which reduces the credibility of the teaser.
Even if the teaser turns out to be fake, Virtuous could still be working on a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3. So it remains to be seen what Konami has in store for this year’s Game Awards.
