    If Konami were semi-intelligent they'd use that system Kojima built up and make a mercenary contractor game, set after the point of mgs4 or inbetween MGX and MGS1. Could make an entire game based around creating a charactor and taking contracts as a merc to do jobs for corrupt governments or warlords in 3rd world countries. Maybe join different PMCs to get access to different areas to fight in and do jobs. Or you know, just remake any of the old metal gear solids and make massive amounts of cash.

    Kojima should already admit he stumbled himself after being unable to finish MGSV despite its 5 years development cycle and a budget of $80 millions.

    Also lol at "zombies don't belong at Metal Gear, it's supposed to be espionage with political fiction" when the series is filled with bizarre stuff.

    People bring this up several time, but there is still a difference in tone when you have a few bosses who have supernatural powers (or NANOMACHINES!) and fighthing hordes of magical zombies.

    Also the supernatural was also a very small portion of the game, mostly it was about sneaking and real life military stuff. But it seems this new game focuses on these zombie horde defenses.

    Probably it has some kind of meta level progression system and unlocks, no surprise there.

    why the fuck did konami waste money on this shit instead of just finishing MGSV or you know, releasing some hack "expansion" for it a year later while its hype was still lukewarm.

    This is probably the cheapest way they can milk more money from MGSV assets at this point, tbh. Both financially and creatively.

    And more steady and long-term "monetization" opportunities than single player content.

    I really struggle to figure an audience for this game. who's gonna buy it? Kojima orphans who hate konami? Basic online mp players who don't give an actual fuck about niche things? This game is gonna be dead within a month of release date

    They'd have to pay Keifer Sutherland again and all kinds of expensive shit then.

    Konami's just waiting for this to bomb to say "well, see, there's absolutely NO INTEREST in the series, might as well make more pachinko machines!"

    That makes sense I suppose.

    I dont know why they bothered with that nonsense in the first place. I dont think there is a single MGS fan out there who went "replace david hayter with keither sutherland? That sounds great!!" and Konami must've been balking at going from paying some dude upper-middle class wages to movie star bills

    Because Kojima is a westaboo who is obsessed with actors in hollywood. It's also why Death Stranding is set to burst with hollywood actors, to the point that they have Del Toro, Norman Reedus and Mads Mikellson all at the forefront. I doubt it was Konami thinking Sutherland was necessary for MGSV. They'd probably have just grabbed Hayter again.

    While it's hard to defend the current Konami, Kojima has to be blamed for not finishing MGS V. Just check his twitter nowadays and all what he does is traveling the world and meeting up with his hollywood buddies, I wonder how much of Sony's money is he going to burn before finishing Death Stranding
