Metal Gear Solid fan project cancelled

The Shadow Moses project is dead.

Metal Gear Solid is one of the most beloved games of all time and some enthusiastic fans wanted to honor it with a remake using Unreal Engine 4. That project, titled Shadow Moses, has been unceremoniously cancelled.

In a post on their Facebook page, the Shadow Moses team stated the following: 

Hi guys!

We have an important announcement to make today:

We have to cancel the Shadow Moses Project for reasons beyond our control. 

We would like to thank everyone for the tremendous support we have received.

Shadow Moses team.

The team had previously stated that a "huge" announcement was coming on the 13 of March, so this news is disappointing to say the least.

This situation should really come as no surprise, however, as the creators acknowledged the problems they were bound to face from day one. Copyright issues were the biggest hurdle, so it won't be surprising to discover that Konami insisted that they stop the project. At this time, however, the reason for their sudden cancellation is unknown. 

What do you guys think? Are you disappointed by the news? If you don't know anything about the project, you can head here to see in-game videos and screenshots.

    I am hugely disappointed because I know that this will have been due to Konami being the company they are. We have seen the way they were with Kojima once he left them, stripping his name from Metal Gear Solid and preventing from collecting his award. I doubt it will be long until we see something from Konami about them making a HD remake, and the problem is that they will probably do a quick job of it which is not as good.
