Metal Gear Solid V | Boss and Quiet

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain did as well financially as you could expect a Metal Gear game to do. That is to say that it did immensely well, despite the fact that the game was marred by a good deal of inner turmoil, which resulted in Konami trying to take Kojima’s name off the game, rumors of the company dissolving his studio, and completely ending development of Silent Hills. There are even conflicting accounts as to whether or not Kojima is even still working at Konami.

Regardless, Konami is still looking at pursuing another sequel to the highly successful franchise. According to the print edition of Nikkei, Konami is looking at their options into creating a new Metal Gear game. It’s also reported that Kojima — who according to Konami is currently “on vacation” — hasn’t said whether or not he’s going to be working on the game. Nothing was said about the game other than it would require a massive investment.

Considering the final fate of Silent Hills was to be scrapped and the franchise getting a pachinko machine right after, I can’t imagine that Kojima would be particularly eager to rejoin the company for another attempt at a game. But that’s just me. Let us know what you think about this in the comments below.

    Not after what Konami did to Kojima they’re not.

    I think the whole world will be happy with more Metal Gear – video game franchises never truly disappear. However, having Kojima come back is too farfetch’d to be true. Well, it’s not like Konami can’t replicate what was done for past games.

    I think what happened here is that nobody expected MGS5 to make its money back(inside Konami), and it did. It probably made more money than most pachinko machines ever would and now fittingly they have egg on their face and no Kojima to clean it up.
