What's the Future for MGS, Kojima, and Konami?

Another week, another Twinfinite Discusses. Welcome back to the show where we answer the questions and topics that you send us in through Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube. This week, Ed, Ish and Sharon discuss a wide variety of hot button gaming issues. Like what the future holds for the major parties behind Metal Gear Solid V. What will Konami do with the MGS franchise? Do they have the guts do a MGS game without Kojima? Speaking of MGS, we thumb up thumb down whether or not Quiet’s reason for running around naked is a cool one (spoiler alert!) and also try to figure out a worse day for Mad Max to release (we can’t).

For MGS and Konami : piles of doodo
Kojima : great games no matter where he goes.

Konami is screwed , their best IP is basically dead and that sucks , MGS is my favorite series and they managed to fuck it up, PES hasn't been good since 09 and all their other IPs were killed .
And their CEO is such a douche that I hope they burn .

Hopefully Konami gets it together. Wondering if they willing to still make more MGS without Kojima. Probably a reboot if anything.

Well other publishers did come back after bad publicity, but it was like Konami wanted to be hated xD

The problem with Kojima is that he takes a long time to create his games which increases their costs substantially. I am sure he will signup somewhere, but I don't know if he will have the financial and time freedom he did developing for Konami. Which may affect the quality of his next title.

konami - likely to make a lot of money making games on mobile while playing it safe on consoles with future games like pes.

kojima - likely to either go to kickstarter to help fund his next project or start a new indie team. there is no way he is going to finance his own games if he wants to make big titles. his ability to budget is a lot like his ability to edit his cutscenes.

my money is on konami being more stable than kojima. without mgs kojima has an uphill battle. without kojima konami still has a lot of value in its ip's (including mgs) and mobile can make a lot of money.

The only MGS we'll be seeing out of Konami will be pachinko machines and mobile games. Both of which will probably never make it out of Japan because the new CEO of Konami wants to keep all activity, outside PES, to be kept within Japan.

Err... Konami releasing the missing chapter and including the missing content!

MGS is pretty much over with now that Kojima is gone.

Konami is pretty much over with, for me anyway, now that MGS and Silent Hills are gone.

I rescued Kojima from the Soviets so he's on my team now and we're both waiting for MGS Online.

Pachinko machines from the looks of it.

Kojima will always have a future in gaming. I'm sure there are many big development companies that would love to hire him for proejcts. MGS is dead, except maybe in the form of those Pachinko machines. Konami will fade into obscurity.
