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. They 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. Now, we look ahead to Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake, though that could still be a ways off. Hopefully if it does well, Konami may return to the series more frequently. For now, here’s what we know about a possible Metal Gear Solid 6.

  • What is it? The unconfirmed sixth game in the Metal Gear Solid series
  • When’s it out? TBC
  • What can I play it on? TBC

Metal Gear is in a weird sort of limbo right now, at least in terms of new games in the mainline series. 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.
