Unpacking The Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake Rumors
In October 2021, rumors started pointing toward a "Metal Gear Solid 3" remake, and in 2022, some of the games were pulled from online storefronts right around the time of the series’ 35th anniversary. Now, a mysterious Twitter video from @zcSOLIDxSNAKEzx has appeared, featuring a picturesque scene of trees and a series of Morse code at the end.
The clip was supposedly found in a now-hidden video on game developer Virtuos’ YouTube channel. According to fans, the Morse code included the date December 8, 1964. December 8, 2022 is the date of the Game Awards — a great place to announce the remake — and 1964 is the year that "Metal Gear Solid 3" is set in, but there may be evidence that the video is a fluke.
Twitter user @GGFTL1 found that the scene of the trees was shown off as a free Unreal Engine 5 assets pack, which seemed to discredit the rumor about "Metal Gear Solid 3." As the same user pointed out, it would be odd for developers to use that video instead of original work for a game that's considered one of the best video games of all time.
