Update 7:41 pm: After discovering that the footage used in the mysterious video was taken from an Unreal Engine 5 asset pack, it now appears that the video is a hoax.
While it’s unclear where the story originated, or why, for now it’s best to assume this isn’t true until confirmed otherwise by Konami, Virtuos, or TGA. Follow the original story.
I just found that the video comes from here though
A free UE5 asset pack.
This doesn’t confirm or deny anything, but it’s weird that they would use this instead of some of their own work.https://t.co/lfiUz2FWmV

source story: It looks like the long-rumored remake of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater may be announced at the upcoming The Game Awards.
The news comes via a now-deleted video that reportedly surfaced on Chinese studio Virtuos’ YouTube channel earlier today.
However, you can never delete something faster than someone can save a copy; The Virtuos video, regardless of whether it was released intentionally or not, is now making the rounds, with Metal Gear fans speculating that the remake will soon be formally confirmed.
it seems as if he puzzle – which seems to clear as fast as it is reloaded – includes Morse code for the phrase “December 8, 1964”. December 8th is when the awards will be issued, while 1964 is the year Snake Eater is set (thanks, MP1st).
It looks like Virtuous’s Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake could be announced at the Game Awards. First preview of it. The same virtuosos uploaded this teaser, but later deleted it, but people saved it. Morse code explained on December 8th, IE the Game Awards. https://t.co/pHYjNvyt48

More interestingly, this strange rampage video coincides with the recent release of a recruitment video in which Virtuos shares “a day in the life of Virtuos Montreal”. Within the video, an artist can be seen with The Art of Metal Gear Solid coyly on display to the side.
All this comes a year after a new version of Metal Gear Solid 3 was first reported to be in the workswith Konami reportedly handing over development to Virtuos Studios.
In a recent interview about his upcoming graphic novel, Isaac was asked for an update on the film and he kindly thanked him, though without offering any firm information on the film’s progress.
“We want it to happen,” Isaac said. “Be excited. What’s the script? What’s the story? What’s the shot? […] But I hope that comes to fruition because there is a lot of potential for that.
“It’s an incredible match. It’s my favourite,” he confirmed.
