Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is the remake that fans were hoping to receive after many years and now it is confirmed to be in development. Of course, some are wondering if Hideo Kojima will have a role in its making. Kojima was the director, game designer, producer, and writer (along with other members of the team) of the original Snake Eater so people want to know more about any involvement.

Is Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater Being Worked on by Hideo Kojima?

No, Hideo Kojima is not working on Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater, at least nothing has been mentioned as of yet to make a counter-point. Hideo Kojima was reportedly treated unfairly by Konami in the parting moments of his time at the studio with his name effectively being removed from everything related to Metal Gear. Along with that, his “Kojima Productions Studios: Los Angeles” was renamed to “Konami Los Angeles Studio”.

We would think it highly unlikely to see Hideo Kojima working on the Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater title which feels like a shame. However, Kojima and the potential Konami team collaboration garnered so much excitement when its remake was announced at a PlayStation Showcase: so it’s bittersweet.

One thing is for certain, if the remake is faithful then there will be a lot of happy customers at its release. Some are wondering what the new elements will be in the remake and that is yet to be seen. It will be interesting to look at how the story plays out and if there are any changes in some of the side structures of the game.

Now that Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater has been announced, it means that there is going to be even more attention on the Metal Gear series once again. This is no doubt one of the reasons why a “Master Collection” of the three beginning Metal Gear games are also on the way. Konami looks to be hoping for a major impact with all of these titles.
