An employee from Virtuos, the studio rumoured to be remaking Metal Gear Solid 3, has confirmed that the developer is working on an unannounced AAA action-adventure game remake.

As spotted by Twitter user Faizan Shaikh (and reported by VGC), Virtuos lead programmer Zhiyang Li references the AAA remake in his LinkedIn profile – stating to have been working on the project since 2018.

As per the description of Li’s role at the studio, it seems that the remake will include “4K support on certain platforms” as well as “AAA quality art production” and “set piece destruction”. While it isn’t yet clear the game that Li is referring to, reports surfaced earlier this month suggesting that Konami is planning remasters of the original Metal Gear Solid games for new consoles, as well as a potential full remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater rumoured to be in the works from Virtuos.

As for Virtuos itself, the studio is no stranger to working on AAA games. Previously, the developer worked on the Nintendo Switch port of Dark Souls Remastered and has additionally contributed to a number of other high profile titles including Uncharted 4, Call of Duty Black Ops 4, Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Outer Worlds, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

While Konami is yet to announce official news of a Metal Gear remake (outsourced or otherwise), last month the studio did revisit one of its beloved IPs with the release of the Castlevania Advanced Collection. The bundle, which contains Castlevania: Circle of the Moon, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, and Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, was released for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox and PC. Since its release, reports from the same sources that suggested the Metal Gear Solid 3 remake also claimed that a “reimagining” of Castlevania is being developed by internal Konami studios.
