Konami is already planning a new “large-scale” Metal Gear Solid game


No room for Hideo?

Konami is already planning what’s next for the Metal Gear Solid series, noting that a “large scale” investment will be necessary when development starts.

According to Nikkei (via Kotaku) Konami has begun talks about the next installment in the franchise with the company previously stating their intention to continue making games in the series.

Whether this is with or without the creator and brains behind the series Hideo Kojima remains to be seen. Konami has been reporting that Kojima is simply on vacation, despite the man himself stating that he and the studio had parted ways.

It’s no surprise that Konami is looking to continue development on what is likely their most successful series considering Metal Gear Solid V has already shipped 5 million copies world wide.

Avid reader and general geek, justifying the time I spend playing games by writing about them. I try not to discriminate by genre, but I remember story more than gameplay. I’ve been playing League for longer than Akali and I’m still Silver. Fallout 3 and MGS3 may be the pinnacle of gaming.
