In the last few months we have read information about Konami’s interest in reviving its large licenses by assigning them to other studios, from Silent Hill a Castlevania Y Metal Gear Solid, it is included some rumors go further and assure that Bluepoint is working on a remake of the original. Whether true or not, actor David Hayter – voice of Snake and Big Boss throughout the saga, except Metal Gear Solid 5– says in an interview to Dan Allen Gaming what He has also heard about this project from his sources days before it became “industry buzz.” Although it is not a confirmation nor does he take it for sure, there is no doubt that Hayter has contacts with the saga and in fact he was the one who revealed to the fans that he would not voice the protagonist of MGS 5; shortly thereafter it was announced to Kiefer Sutherland.
“I thought it was a rumor until yesterday I received a text message from a insider who told me it could be real “, responds Hayter to the question about a remake or reboot. Even so, he recognizes that it should be taken as a rumor despite the fact that it is already being commented on by the industry -with the multiple news about Konami- and that is usually more correct. It also rules out that a developer uses the original dialogues for the quality of the recordings., very precarious and with some external noise -not recorded in a professional studio-. “They could use the dialogs of Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, but again I don’t think the quality is enough. ”
There is a movie going
Following the departure of Hideo Kojima, Konami launched Metal Gear Survive -a survival game- that did not work as expected, and since then the saga has remained on hold. Even so, it still has great potential and a Jordan Vogt-Robert film with Oscar Isaac in the role of Snake will soon be released, so it is logical that Konami wants to capitalize on the license pull with remakes, sequels or remasters. These days we have known that Konami registers in Japan Metal Gear Rising, the action game from PlatinumGames, perhaps with the intention of relaunching it on current consoles.
