The Virtuos website has a mention of Konami. The Chinese studio has listed Metal Gear Solid as one of its recent clients. Virtuos also shared their experience with the FOX Engine.
It is worth noting that Konami has never worked with Virtuos before, which has not developed any games for the Japanese publisher. It may be a coincidence, but last year, there was a rumor online that the Virtuos were working on a remake of the third installment of the spy action. And recently, it’s been in the news again.
Virtuos has worked on the port of XCOM 2, BioShock: The Collection and The Outer Worlds to the Nintendo Switch. The Chinese studio helped develop many teams. It has been involved in the production of AAA games such as Battlefield 1, Uncharted 4 and the remake of Demons Souls.
The studio itself confirmed last year that it had been working on an “unannounced AAA remake” for four years, but did not specify what it was.
