Konami has begun talks about the next Metal Gear title, ‘large-scale investment’ needed

The print edition of Japanese financial newspaper Nikkei reports that Konami has begun internal talks about the next Metal Gear title.

Nikkei adds that Hideo Kojima has not said whether or not he will be involved, but given the situation at Konami as it has reached us over the past few months, this seems pretty unlikely.

Konami has also been quoted saying: “When we start development, a large-scale investment will become necessary.”

Recently, Konami has made clear that there will be a strong focus on the mobile market, but they also insist they will keep creating AAA console games, and that they will continue the Metal Gear series. The success of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which has shipped 5 million copies and made $179 million globally on its opening day, may serve as an incentive to keep investing in the franchise.
