Metal Gear Solid Delta hints at a future for the series

Konami’s remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater seems like it is going to be the starting of a series of latest initiatives in the franchise created by a “new team,” in response to feedback from producer Noriaki Okamura.

In a new video released Monday for Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, the identify of Konami’s upcoming MGS 3 remake, Okamura tells longtime Snake voice actor David Hayter that his workforce, which incorporates “plenty of people on the team who were part of the original games,” has “been entrusted with the future of Metal Gear.”
