At an E3 roundtable interview, Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima announced his plans to remake Metal Gear Solid using the Fox Engine – Kojima Production’s next-generation game engine – GameReactor reported.
According to the article, Kojima is currently looking for a developer to tackle the likely next-gen remake. This would actually be the second time Kojima has trusted an unrelated developer to remake Metal Gear Solid for a new console after Canadian developer Silicon Knights developed The Twin Snakes for the GameCube in 2004.
The Fox Engine began development shortly after the release of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots and is the engine being used to develop Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain – the next game in the MGS franchise. Fox is also being used in Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2014.
