Fan Remake of Original Metal Gear Solid Proposed for PC

It's been 16 years since Metal Gear Solid arrived on the PC, but a fan of the series is interested in creating a modern port of the game with Unreal Engine 4 only if publisher Konami is okay with it.

Or they might look at this as a way to change their outlook. With the amount of bad press the publisher has received from the disillusioned gaming community after the abject treatment of Hideo Kojima - terming his departure as him being on vacation and then barring him for attending The Game Awards - Konami might be interested in showing they still care about the audience they have served and been loved by for decades.

And despite Kojima finally leaving last month to start his own studio and Konami's announcement it would shutter its Los Angeles studio, the publisher is moving forward with development of a new Metal Gear game and is hiring for its Tokyo location.
