In 2016, the folks at Konami announced a new Metal Gear game in the form of Metal Gear Survive. What makes this game interesting isn’t so much the gameplay itself, but rather this marks the first Metal Gear title that will be released by Konami following Hideo Kojima leaving the studio.

Unfortunately if you were hoping to get your hands on the game this year and see if maybe Konami has what it takes to carry on the Metal Gear legacy Kojima-less, you will have to wait as the developers have announced during E3 2017 that Metal Gear Survive will be skipping its initial 2017 release and will be released in early 2018 instead.

The company announced that they will need the extra time to polish up the game. They also revealed that it will feature a “dense single-player mode”, so if you wanted more story, you’re in luck. Unfortunately there was no mention of when exactly in 2018 we will see the game, other than it being “early 2018”, so for now gamers will just have to wait and see.

Metal Gear Survive is currently set for a release across multiple platforms which includes the PS4, Xbox One, and the PC.
