Metal Gear Solid remake – Xbox One gamers will be ecstatic

An independent developer has been working on an Unreal Engine 4 remake of the iconic 1998 stealth game Metal Gear Solid.

The remake has been in development for years now, and based on the incredible trailer, it looks as though the final product could well be worth the effort.

The only sticking point is that Konami owns the copyright to the game and the remake’s creator Airam Hernande has spoken of the potential copyright issues the project may run into.

He said: “Konami owns the MGS copyright and therefore sooner or later we will need their full permission.

“We have therefore chosen to openly share this project from the beginning so that we can deal with any issues that may arise as they come.

“We believe this is better than putting years of work into a project only to get it shut down. Please, respect this decision.”

It certainly wouldn’t be the first time Konami have shut down a Metal Gear Solid project.

In 2014, a similar fan project was shut down by Konami, ceasing a team of developers who were working on a remake of the original 1987 Metal Gear game.

However there might be hope for the project.
