‘Even if the Metal Gear franchise continues, to me, this is the last Metal Gear’
Konami’s website has the first indications of Metal Gear Solid continuing without series creator Hideo Kojima.
This note from Konami confirms Kojima will “remain involved throughout” Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain’s September release. Additionally, Konami “will continue to develop and distribute top-quality content in the METAL GEAR series.”
“As the next step in the series, KONAMI has already resolved to develop a new ‘METAL GEAR’ title.”
The company is currently hiring “for main staff to lead the development.”
