This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about a new Silent Hill game or a Metal Gear Solid remake being in development at Konami. Leaked screenshots taken from what appeared to be an early prototype of the Silent Hill 2 remake pitched to Konami surfaced on the internet.
According to Dusk Golem, who has also shared plenty of inside information regarding in-development titles in the past, the screenshots were real, but they weren’t anywhere close to the final product. He said that they were captured from an internal pitch demo from Polish studio Bloober Team before the project was greenlit. As a result, they were based on a low budget proof of concept created to get Konami’s approval, and, therefore, can’t be considered a vertical slice.
Golem also stated that the first three Metal Gear Solid games are getting the remastered treatment from Konami. He stated that Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 remasters are planned for release on all platforms, including Steam and consoles. According to him, Konami plans on releasing the new remastered versions of Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, and 3 will be sold separately, but if the trilogy is bought as a collection, buyers will get extra goodies in the form of MSX versions of Metal Gear 1 and 2 MSX.
