Metal Gear Survive, a zombie infested spin off from a now Kojima-less Konami, will not be launching this year as was originally announced. Instead, it has been pushed back to the beginning of 2018. Konami has cited the need to polish the game as the primary reason for the delay. The title will feature both a fully fleshed out single-player mode and a cooperative multiplayer mode in which players will be fighting for their lives in an alternate Metal Gear universe against the zombie onslaught.
It’s always good to see developers take time to polish their games, and this is no exception, especially for Metal Gear Survive. Being revealed last year, the initial reaction from the fans was not as positive as Konami hoped for, as it is a huge departure from past titles in the series. With it being playable this week at E3 2017, let’s hope it can prove the doubters wrong as this storied franchise tries something new. You can read about our hands-on with the game here.
