Announcement of Metal Gear Survive
At Gamescom 2016, Konami announced the first Metal Gear game to not be produced by series creator Hideo Kojima. It's known as Metal Gear Survive, and released on February 22nd 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The game was given a trailer at Gamescom 2016, and has been described by Konami as a "co-op survival game set within an alternate universe." They also announced that it would be sold at the budget price point of $30.
The announcement was met with overwhelmingly negative reactions from Metal Gear fans and gamers for shifting the game genre into a zombie-survival horror game.
Hideo Kojima himself said at the 2016 Tokyo Game Show that this game made him laugh and ticked him off at the same time. Kojima also said "The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage. Where do zombies fit in with that?".
