Konami gives the go ahead for original Metal Gear fan remake

Posted on June 2, 2014 AT 03:40am

Outer Heaven, a mod group that is recreating the original Metal Gear using Valve’s Alien Swarm engine, has been given official approval to continue with the project by Konami.

The group posted on moddb that Konami had given them the go ahead to continue providing that the group doesn’t “abuse the copyright issues (i.e. make a profit from the project/take donations).” The group also has to keep the publisher ”up to date with any updates and feedback received as and when the game is released.”

In a second email, Konami added:  ”If the project goes well and there will be public interest in it, KONAMI will surely get to know this and consider further step accordingly.”
