A fan-made remake of the original Metal Gear game has been shut down by Konami, according to Metal Gear Informer. The shutdown of this project comes months after the publisher initially gave its blessing to the project. The remake was being developed by mod team Outer Heaven, who promised a recreation of the 1987 MSX and NES game. Konami gave its blessing with the condition that the remake was not sold for money.
However, a statement from the team sent to Metal Gear Informer states that the project has now been scrapped following instructions from Konami to end it.
"The project has been shut down by Konami," an email sent to the site read. "Seems that they all couldn't agree on the project going ahead."
The mod team also revealed that David Hayter was on board to voice Snake, and had even recorded some lines for it. It posted a work-in-progress trailer showing a rough cut of scenes yet to be animated, complete with Hayter's dialogue.
