Konami has started discussions about the new Metal Gear Solid game. According to Nikkei, a business publication, internal discussions about a new Metal Gear game have begun, and the company is examining plans.

The report was first published today in Nikkei, the online version of which was translated by Kotaku. “When we start development, a large-scale investment will become necessary,” Konami said. Other details including a release date, have not been confirmed. 

The company earlier said that auditions for main staff to lead the development of the next MGS game were underway. "Konami will continue to develop and distribute top-quality content in the Metal Gear series following Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain," Konami stated.

Kojima's involvement in the next game was not discussed publicly, and it is still uncertain whether he will be a part of the next game at all.

This report follows the news of closure of the LA Studio which was an arm of Kojima Productions. Hideo is currently under a contract which renders him unable to sign new partnerships or announce new projects. This contract ends in December 2015, so don't expect any statements from the man himself.

A power struggle between Konami and Kojima Productions led to the removal of Hideo Kojima's name from all of the game products. The dispute reportedly led to Kojima leaving Konami in October. Konami, however, is claiming Kojima's absence to be a vacation.

Do you think Kojima will be a part of the new MGS? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ready to take another bite out of Satan playing Dracula? Konami Digital Entertainment’s Castlevania: Lord of Shadow 2 is a video game hard core gamers in North America have been anticipating eagerly for months.

Starting on February 25, 2014, they can take the fight to Satan again as the fearless leader of the vampires, immortal Dracula. If you’re ready to take another bite out of the Lord of Chaos? Throw on your cape and get ready to put Satan in his place playing Castlevania: Lord of Shadow2.


Konami is developing editions of Castlevania: Lord of Shadow 2 for the Xbox 360, Windows PC and Playstation 3. Drop by to view new screenshots of Dracula, conceptual character images, and even more concerning Castlevania: Lord of Shadow 2. You can discover the skills and powers available to Dracula as he battles Satan.

This time, Dracula wakes up without his vampire powers and must reclaim his abilities in order to defeat his arch foe. Dracula even gets a few new friends to help along the way, and something Konami refers to as Dragon metamorphosis. We have yet to see anything concrete on this, but we can certainly expect Konami to come up with something spectacular.

Start making plans to throw on your cape in the weeks ahead to head out to take care of Satan one more time playing Castlevania: Lord of Shadow 2. The fight is about to get intense and the action amazing, once Castlevania: Lord of Shadow 2 takes flight.
