Konami Internally Discusses Possible Next Metal Gear Solid Game

Will Snake be sticking around for some more action?

Metal Gear Solid


According to a newly-released report, Konami has been internally discussing the possibility of another game in the Metal Gear Solid saga. Despite any previous rumors, it seems as though Konami may still be interested in the series. This news was revealed by the Japanese financial publication Nikkei.

Translated by Kotaku was a quote by a Konami representative, stating “when we start development, a large-scale investment will become necessary.” The involvement of the creator of the series, Hideo Kojima, is currently unknown. The rumors of Kojima leaving Konami has never been officially confirmed by Konami, however if they are true then it is most likely that he will not any say on this new game’s development.

Although series creator Hideo Kojima’s parting from Konami has never been officially confirmed, it’s a little hard to believe Konami, considering the news today that Kojima Productions LA has been shuttered, along with the previous loss of staff from Kojima Productions Japan. Only time will tell.

So, do you think we’ll be seeing another major entry in the Metal Gear Solid series from Konami? Be sure to sound off in the comments section below.


Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
