Metal Gear Solid 5 to come out between April 2013 to May 2014

Says Nomura

No, not THAT Nomura.

How confident are you that Konami will deliver? Also, what do we even want from an MGS5? I remember there being a bunch of nerd rage on the internet about MGS4, but I thought it was the best one.

I'm always down for more Metal Gear

Didn't Metal Gear Solid 4 wrap shit up, though? (I honestly don't know, as I've never played it.)

@Video_Game_King: It wrapped things up for Solid Snake, yes.

I felt like the ending to MGS4 was kind of a cop out and I really don't want an MGS5, (unless it's a wild departure from the current MGS world) especially that close to the next generation of consoles. I rather see something new out of Kojima, that is, if he is even going to be working on MGS5.

Buuuuut, if MGS5 was set in the Snatcher or Policenauts world, I'd buy it.

Well, Kojima has been teasing that new engine of his. And with Platinum working on Revengeance, that leaves Kojima's team open, so...

I'm up for more stealth action, but I don't really see where they can take the story. On the other hand, Revengeance seems to be after MGS4, so maybe that'll leave it open for more stealth focused stories.

Or maybe it'll be another prequel like MGS3.

You know, I wouldn't mind seeing a 3D remake of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2, complete with voice acting, and perhaps extended stories. Could be interesting.

I'll take all the damn Metal Gear I can get.

Though I would like to see a new IP from Kojima at some weird point.

If Kojima is involved then sure why not. But I do feel that series is getting a little stretched out.

Plus who will be the lead? Another Big Boss clone appears...

They already made MGS5. It was called Peace Walker.

Besides, Kojima has been begging people to stop buying the MGS series, but this fanbase will not listen, so Konami will not stop throwing money at him to make more.

I think this time Kojima will attempt to out-troll himself by making a 5 hour animated opening cutscene about war with David Hayter narrating from afar, and then the entire game will change into an hour-long point-and-click adventure game starring Sunny as a Starbucks barista trying to impress a boy she likes. Then the epilogue will be a cutscene that rolls for another 2 hours, then credits, then another hour of epilogue. And we will still give him money for it.

This about sums up my feelings as well.

The weirdest thing about this story to me is the assumed lifeline of the ps3.....yikes.

i lol at ppl that call peace walker mgs5. i'm a huge mgs fan and i think it's silly.

as for mgs5 i'd obviously buy it but i think kojima's talent is going to waste on one franchise.

i'd be really happy if he did some new ips

@DocHaus: I'm not saying I'd buy that.....but uhhhhh......(idbuythat)

#17 Posted by lavaman77 (566 posts) -

Then it will be delayed to 2018. I know this song and dance and im not going to fall for it again.

That original teaser countdown that ended in Peace Walker had a big 5 and Naked Snakes face in it and for a while Kojima's implied that it could be considered so.

#21 Posted by liquiddragon (221 posts) -

@Daneian: you are right but that "5" also looked like a S and there is a reason it didn't end up being called mgs5

Seems like there's a lot of unknown factors, I'd be surprised if this actually happened.
