When famed game producer Hideo Kojima announced that he would be leaving Konami, many wondered about the future of the Metal Gear franchise, a franchise that was pretty much synonymous with Kojima due to his involvement in the majority of the titles. We suppose we will find out soon enough with Metal Gear Survive.

The game was originally announced last year and according to a tweet by the official Metal Gear Twitter account, it seems that the game is now set for a release late February 2018. This is in line with an earlier report that revealed that the game had been delayed to 2018, although back then it was not stated as to when we might be able to expect it, but now we know.

According to the game’s description, “Metal Gear Survive is a spin-off of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain that integrates MGSV:TPP’s its intense gameplay elements into a survival action format. This is Metal Gear as you’ve never seen it before. The tension of stealth gameplay, tactics of base defense and the grueling reality of survival. Set in a dangerous, ruined world filled with creatures and hazerdous mist. Success relies on your ability to read the evolving situation and make strategic choices – placing defensive units, predicting enemy behavior and designing attack patterns.”

It should be noted that Metal Gear Survive will be the first Metal Gear game released after Kojima’s departure from the company. Kojima had previously stated that he has nothing to do with or has any involvement with the game.
