Metal Gear Survive, the Metal Gear series spinoff game revealed last year, will not release before the end of 2017 as originally announced, Konami confirmed.
According to the Japanese publisher, Metal Gear Survive will release during early 2018 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The additional development time will be used to further polish the game.
Up until today, it seemed like the game would indeed release this year. Just a month ago, Konami listed it with a 2017 release window in its Financial Results.
Hideo Kojima won't be involved in Metal Gear Survive, but part of the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain team is working on it.
In a struggle to stay alive on this harsh terrain filled with deadly creatures, soldiers who were previously on Motherbase now must work cooperatively in order to survive. METAL GEAR SURVIVE continues the pedigree of METAL GEAR SOLID V’s highly praised gameplay design, with a unique blend of stealth and co-op play mechanics. Players can strategically manage massive threats with the help of four-player online cooperative play. New weaponry will also be introduced to combat charging creatures and lethal environments as well.
Metal Gear Survive is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We will keep you updated on the game’s release date as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
