    At Gamescom today, Konami has revealed a spinoff game in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, of all things. Titled Metal Gear Survive, it's a 4 player co-op stealth game that takes place after Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. This game will be the first Metal Gear Solid title after Hideo Kojima's departure from Konami. Metal Gear Survive will also be running on Konami's Fox Engine.

    This only has the metal gear name for the cash. This has nothing to do with metal gear.

    I wouldn't say that. It's quite clearly set in the metal gear universe, just with a twist. But of course it won't be nearly as good as the actual metal gear games.

    I guess Umbrella Corps sold more copies than expected, now Konami wants a piece.

    Yeah, killing some kinds of zombies. And by the looks of it, stealth won't be the focus

    "now that kojima left we have no clue what to do with this money cow, quick, analyst guy, what's the most stagnant, generic, lazy, worthless and saturated combination of genres in the industry right now?"
    "survival co-op with zombies, sir"
    "it's perfect, do it"

    Between insane and insecure
    It's like they saw what Nintendo was doing with Metroid and instead of learning said, "We could do worse than that!"

    I can't play an MG game that doesn't spam Hideo Kojima's name.

    Literally all they had to do was remaster the original METAL GEAR games for the 3DS and/or Vita and they'd be swimming in money and praise.
    And a Ghost Babel remake would probably make them more money than they could spend.

    Focusing on the actual game in question:
    The concept is interesting, and it could easily spawn an enjoyable multiplayer experience. If done right, it could be the next "flavor of the month" for several gaming communities. Arguably, we really haven't seen a decent co-op stealth game since the days of Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, and off the top of my head I can't think of one that allowed for a full team of 4 players.

    That being said, using the Metal Gear name as a crutch reveals they have little to no faith in the game and those developing it, and is more likely to make fans of the series upset than it is to draw in new players. In fact, as the Metal Gear franchise has so much backstory and L O R E, I could easily see this choice making potential new players hesitant to pick up this game without experiencing the previous titles, by which point the game (and possibly Konami) may no longer be relevant. At least if they hitched onto another existing IP, they could free themselves from being known as "The People Who Make Metal Gear Solid and Sometimes Pachinko".

    Ultimately, I'm conflicted. I'm interested in the concept and I want to see similar ideas in the future, but success would only tell Konami that they don't need to move on. Plus, if they're willing to stand on the back of recent controversy and spit in the face of a loyal fanbase only to make a quick buck, I have no problem watching their efforts crash and burn.

    I won't buy this shooter, no Kojima no money. I wont feel surprise if Konami screw up this saga as they did with castlevania.
