Konami Is Making a Comeback, but What About Metal Gear?

Now is a good time for those who shy from broad daylight. Silent Hill is coming back, with its concrete-coloured fogs. Fans might get a new Castlevania, with interest in the series sharpening like a thirst, thanks to the Dead Cells crossover DLC. A trademark has also been registered for something called “Project Zircon” – the zircon being a collectible item in numerous Castlevania games, most notably in Symphony of the Night. The begetter of both series – and thus the celebrated bringer of gloom – is Konami, which, like a recumbent Dracula, is gradually returning to health.

But there is one more cherished Konami son, of whom we are yet to hear anything solid. Where is Snake? And what should we reasonably hunger for, as fans of Metal Gear?

That's what I want to know. Konami did say that the series will still be supported: https://www.metalgearinform...

This was in 2016 mind you. Still nothing. They also removed some of the games from digital storefronts and despite promises that this was only temporary and they will return soon, so far it hasn't happend.

Konami stated after the collapse and cancellation of silent hills they would support the series and it went on that long hiatus. Hopefully they’ll bring back other stuff soon.

Yeah I hope the revival of the Silent Hill series means Konami is going to bring back some of their other franchises as well.

MGS without Kojima is not MGS

Perhaps but they could at least rerelease the old games on new platforms. They haven't released them since the HD Collection on PS3 / 360.

You mean without his very large staff that make 95% of the game for him to overlay in the credits (SEVERAL TIMES): “all made be me! Hideo Kojima! because the game is actually about me!

They don’t need Kojima's ego, drama or misappropriation of company funds. Be glad that they have moved on, and Kojima can align himself in new holes to dig himself out of with MS (and of course, take no accountability for).

MG and MGS never belonged to Kojima and THAT is a nice little sting he’s always and justifiably going to feel. Good riddance.

I will never understand Kojima haters. Yeah he doesn't code the game but he's providing the overall gameplay direction and story. Every MGS game he released introduced something innovative in the stealth department. That won't be the case in any future MGS entry.

Just remaster the old games, without Kojima it's not Metal Gear

Mgs is coming guys, there's been to many rumours of a ps exclusive for there not to be smoke.

The remake will be exclusive and hopefully we get 4k set for all the other games.
