Metal Gear Solid 6: everything we know so far


Will there ever be a Metal Gear Solid 6? Though it’s been a long time since Metal Gear Solid 5 graced our screens, the Metal Gear series is sufficiently iconic and rooted in gaming history that we think it unlikely for Konami to abandon the series entirely. 

The Metal Gear games are a series of third-person stealth action games which follow a sprawling decades-long saga. The games deal with themes of family, free will, and nuclear proliferation, often using over-the-top melodrama and cinematic flair to explore nuanced and difficult topics.

The stealth action elements of Metal Gear have always placed an emphasis on resourcefulness and lateral thinking, famously rewarding players for out-of-the-box strategies which, ironically, sometimes involve hiding in boxes. The most recent entry in the franchise, 2018’s Metal Gear: Survive, was Konami’s first attempt at a new  Metal Gear since the departure of the series’ creator, Hideo Kojima. It attempted to add co-op survival elements to the stealth formula but was widely regarded as a failure. Hopefully, a sequel will give Konami a chance to learn from its mistakes.

Spoilers ahead for the Metal Gear series.

Metal Gear is in a weird sort of limbo right now. Hideo Kojima, now working at his own studio, has long since severed ties with Konami. However, Konami still owns the rights to the series. So far, Konami has only released one Kojima-free Metal Gear title: Metal Gear Survive. Released in 2018, this co-op zombie survival game was poorly received.
