Metal Gear Informer turns 6

It was exactly six years ago, on January 15th 2012, that this website was created. Metal Gear Rising was in development, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes was to be unveiled later that year, and the 25th anniversary was going to be celebrated soon.

Over the past six years we have published over 2000 news posts, articles and analyses. We have had over 4.5 million visitors and more than 12 million views. Over 100.000 comments were made by the community.

2017 was a bit of a slow year, there wasn’t a lot of Metal Gear news despite it being the 30th anniversary, and with Kojima’s new game still far from release. Hopefully this is something that will solve itself as Death Stranding will come closer and perhaps new Metal Gear projects are unveiled. But for now we just have to wait and see and take what we can get. The future of the series remains unclear, but hopefully it can be given a second life under a new development team. In the meantime, we may have to look for other ways to recover the costs of this website so that we can keep it going, now that traditional ad income as decreased quite a bit over the last few years.

Lastly, thanks to all the people who contribute to this site by visiting, commenting and moderating. It is greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, suggestions or remarks, feel free to post them in the comment section.
