Kojima’s thoughts on Metal Gear Survive

Posted on September 20, 2016

With news of Konami releasing Metal Gear Survive in the near future, fans are no doubt contemplating if it will be worth their time, since it won’t be captained by veteran Metal Gear developer Hideo Kojima. But others seem equally concerned with what Kojima’s thoughts are on the upcoming Metal Gear title.

In a recent IGN article, Kojima expressed his thoughts regarding Metal Gear Survive as well as answered the question “if he had any hand in the game’production?”

“That’s (Metal Gear Survive) nothing to do with me! The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage. Where do zombies fit in with that? If I had worked on that game, it would have mechs in it.”

According to Gamespot’s report  Kojima left due to “power struggles”.

Restricted access to corporate emails and phone calls at Kojima Productions were cited as reasons for the departure, as well as he and other senior officials being shifted to “contractors” rather than “permanents”, with their contracts scheduled to end in December 2015. It was also stated that “in all likelihood”  after the completion of The Phantom Pain, Kojima Productions would disband.

Just months after his departure from Konami, Kojima announced that he was working on a new project named Death Stranding, which is currently in development and scheduled for released in 2017 on the PlayStation 4 and PC . New details have also arise about the upcoming game which you can read in our recent article.

Death Stranding Title

Metal Gear Suvive takes place right after the attack on mother base in Metal Gear V: Ground Zeroes. It sees some of the Militaires Sans Frontières soldiers sucked into various wormholes and transported to  an alternate universe, which is occupied by zombie like creatures. Banding together they must fight the hordes of limitless horrors and find a way back home.

According to an earlier Polygon article Metal Gear Survive will not be a premium retail title, but rather a budget title in the same range as Metal Gear:Ground Zeroes, at least in the US. With no specific retail price announced, we can only assume that Australian pricing will also be in the budget range.


You can also now catch 15 minutes worth of new game play from TGS 2016, displaying a co-op side mission within Metal Gear Survive.

Metal Gear Survive is a multiplayer stealth game scheduled for released in 2017 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
