If Konami keeps the legendary stealth action series going, here are some possible directions.
MGS Survive was a disaster, a game no one asked for. One thing they could do is take inspiration from Capcom remaking Resident Evil 2 and remake MGS3 Snake Eater, think about it, the open world aspect, survival elements/crafting, The End boss battle, it definitely has the most potential plus they can add on some multiplayer too please the suits.
Funnily enough my biggest praise of Survive was the fact it was very MGS3 in its mechanics, I think the hate for survive is blown out of proportion though- as a single-player survival game in the MGS setting it really is a fun game, and those of you that have seen some reviews about the water or food, that issue passes a few hours in. Regardless- a remake of MGS3 is probably one of the most sought after things for the franchise and i'd be very excited if such a thing was announced (it's even less work now because they remade a lot of the cutscenes for pachinko machines!). That said perhaps a classical but new take on MGS could be good too- go back to the heavily narrated style of past games with a new director.
Whatever Konami decide whether its reboot/remake or entirely new sequel, hell even the original MG 1&2 there is a strong hardcore fan base that will buy it.
Remake the 8bit games they first made. Metal gear 1 and 2
I think they should get a young(ish) director who grew up with the series and will take it in directions that Kojima simply wouldn't. I think making Ocelot the main character for a game would be amazing!
a metal gear solid remake for current consoles would be insane. sometimes i just dont know why these companies dont capitalize on this. i mean theres a ton of other companies out there willing to bring these titles to the current generation of consoles. iron galaxy, panic button to name a few. come on konami, make it happen
There's already an mgsvi in development. Has to be.
They could do a proper remake of the original Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 games from the MSX.
Battle Royale in MGSV engine
They only need to do one thing auction of all their IP like THQ (the original one) did back when they went bankrupt. It's obvious current Konami is all about Pachinko and mobile games.
I wish all the previous Metal Gear games would be remade with the MGS V TPP 3D engine and control method, which were top notch in the series, but I'd be content with only the Metal Gear SOLID series being remade, up to Peace Walker. Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater (well, the "Subsistence" edition) remade as an open-world game, with a much bigger scale and notably vast areas where you could get lost in and fight with nothing but gators and snakes and deadly swamps would be a blessing. These were far too vaguely sketched in the original game. They could even remove some of the bad taste in some of H.Kojima's ideas that should never have made their way in that game in the first place, nobody 's interested in having a gay super villain who likes to put his hand on Raidenovitch's crotch for example, or those utterly grotesque eyeballs The End has... Plus, if it were a western game dev in charge of the remake, like Bluepoint games for example, they would probably be more keen to refrain from constantly taking control of the whole flow of the game with forced codec conversations and cutscenes an more open minded about making the game, well, more open... And finally reinstate David Hayter, of course, and we've got a winner. This topic aside, OMFG, take a look at that dude's Metal Gear collection! https://www.pcgamer.com/thi...
