Konami last week announced a remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater called Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater.

A Konami spokesperson has told IGN that series creator Hideo Kojima is not involved with the remake.

They are not involved," said the Konami spokesperson. "However, the development team will work hard to create this remake and also the ports (for Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection) so that they can be enjoyed on multiple platforms by even more players all around the world."

Konami developers who have been "involved in the production of the past [games in the] Metal Gear series" will take on the "central role" of working on remake. 

Virtuos will also be assisting in development the game. The studio has been "involved in the production of previous entries in the Metal Gear series." 

Konami did reveal the reason for remaking Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater is because it depicts the birth of BIG BOSS (Naked Snake), which is the starting point of the Metal Gear series. Another reason is that many fans have been requesting a remake of this game for a long time."

Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is in development for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam.

Did anyone expect different? I wouldn't even put behind Konami to avoid giving the credits.

Yeah, it seems like Konami would rather drink bleach than even utter Kojima's name lol

Which is so strange to me. I mean, there was Castlevania and other IPs, but MGS... that was such a financial windfall for them. You'd think they would have more appreciation for the man who made it all happen. Must have been a very messy divorce behind the scenes.

No. It's a known thing? Guess I missed the boat. I'll look into it.

In VGC it was discussed a lot, but perhaps it wasn't that wild spread... it involved big fight, he being prohibited to talk to anyone in his team, not being allowed to go on a promotion event to present the game and a lot of other harassment. and shenanigans.
