If rumours are to believed, Metal Gear Solid is in line for some sort of a revival. Multiple reports have claimed that it is one of several Konami properties that’s going to be licensed out to third party developers and that multiple Metal Gear remakes are in development, while Konami’s own comments – who claim that they’re “in deep development of a number of key projects” – have only added fuel to the fire. Not only that, they’ve also seemingly hinted that they might indeed be collaborating with third party devs on future games.
Unsurprisingly, the prospect of Metal Gear Solid coming back from the dead has been met with a wide variety of reactions. There’s general skepticism at the very notion, of course, which is understandable, given how Konami has operated in the last few years. But if we were to move past that and assume for a second that the reports are accurate, there’s still plenty else to consider. For instance, without Hideo Kojima at the helm, would a Metal Gear Solid game even be, well, Metal Gear Solid?
