Metal Gear Solid 6 is a recreation that, honestly, won’t ever be launched. The falling out between Hideo Kojima and Konami, together with the gorgeous closed off nature of Metal Gear Solid‘s story, make a sixth entry appear extremely unlikely.
As far as influential recreation franchises go, Metal Gear Solid is among the most impactful. The mind little one of Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid’s mixture of stealth-action gameplay and immersive storytelling blew followers away within the traditional 1998 PS1 title, Metal Gear Solid. For one other 17 years, Kojima and Konami continued the Metal Gear Solid franchise, taking the story into the close to future with nanomachines in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and to the Cold War in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. Any probability of one other sequel died with the discharge of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, although.
No Hideo Kojima, No Metal Gear Solid 6
Those who’ve performed the The Phantom Pain know it’s an unfinished recreation. From guarantees made by Hideo Kojima about MGS5, to information exorcised from the sport itself, there may be proof of a whole lot of content material that by no means made it into the sport. One of probably the most notorious examples is Episode 51, which explains what occurs after Eli steals the Metal Gear on the finish of the sport, reasonably than the unusual, dismissive cliffhanger that’s presently on the finish. Due to the sport’s troubled growth, stemming from Kojima and Konami’s relationship, these items of the sport weren’t featured.
Well prematurely of The Phantom Pain‘s launch have been rumors that Kojima was leaving Konami. Eventually, rumors turned motion, as Konami eliminated Kojima’s title from the advertising for The Phantom Pain and would finally deny him from leaving Japan to attend The Game Awards in 2015. Kojima has by no means gone on the file to clarify what exactly occurred, however it’s clear from the event of The Phantom Pain, and the later cancelled Silent Hills, that no matter occurred between the 2 events was irreparable. Konami would strive making its personal Metal Gear recreation with 2018’s Metal Gear Survive, a zombie-survival recreation operating on The Phantom Pain‘s engine. However, after reviewing and promoting poorly, it was the nail in Metal Gear‘s coffin.
No Story for Metal Gear Solid 6 to Tell
Metal Gear Solid‘s story has a transparent starting, center, and finish, even when it is a little bit messy getting there. At the tip of Guns of the Patriots, each Snake will get their conclusion: Solid Snake, his battle together with his brother Liquid, and his seek for their father, Naked Snake, is poetically accomplished – with Solid Snake probably dying of previous age off-screen. In Kojima’s eyes, the story he needed to inform went as far ahead because it may, explaining why he spent the final decade at Konami filling within the blanks between Snake Eater and the unique Metal Gear by video games like Peace Walker and The Phantom Pain.
As for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, though its total plot was developed by Kojima and takes place after the occasions of Guns of the Patriots, it isn’t Metal Gear Solid 6. Without controlling one of many Snakes, and with minimal connection to unique franchise, it’s basically its personal recreation. The solely Metal Gear Solid 6 that might make sense is wrapping up the occasions between The Phantom Pain and the primary Metal Gear, nevertheless it looks as if that’s by no means going to occur.
Metal Gear Solid 6 just isn’t identified to be in growth.
