In a recent report analysts forecast earnings for Konami of 52 billion yen for fiscal year 2013, and claimed that this figure could rise 15% during fiscal year 2014, running from April 2013 to March 2014, due to the expected release of Metal Gear Solid 5.
EGM’s TAKE: Kojima has already stated that he will “probably” have to make Metal gear Solid 5 at some point in order to please fans. Metal Gear Solid 4 was left unfinished as Snake flew off for “one last mission.” Fans are dying to find out how Snake’s story truly ends and only Kojima holds those answers. We know that the story has to end at some point, however there are some hardcore fans who don’t seem to want to let Snake go. Back when Metal Gear Solid 2 released on PlayStation 2 Kojima claimed it was the final chapter, however upon receiving death threats he decided to give the fans what they wanted, more Metal Gear. Late 2013 seems a good estimate, but only if development has already started. These things are made over night.
