The Metal Gear franchise has sold 60.2 million copies as of the end of September 2023. Konami shared the updated number on their official site. Their previous number from the end of June 2023 had the series at 60.0 million copies, meaning they sold an additional 200,000 units since then. Keep in mind that the recently released Master Collection isn’t counted here yet, since that game came out in October.
Konami has also released their latest financial results, and in the outlook for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2024, the company makes mention of both the Master Collection and the MGS3 remake that is currently in the works. On the Master Collection, Konami writes:
“As major new titles to be released for the future, we are planning METAL GEAR SOLID: MASTER COLLECTION Vol.1, the first installment of a collection that will mark the trajectory of the METAL GEAR series;”
Regarding the Snake Eater remake, the company writes:
“As for ongoing efforts, we are working diligently on METAL GEAR SOLID Δ: SNAKE EATER, which faithfully recreates the story, characters, and game design of METAL GEAR SOLID 3 SNAKE EATER, one of the most beloved entries in the METAL GEAR series, and updates its graphical style to modern graphics for the current generation,”
