It was only a matter of time before Konami made a new Medal Gear Solid game following last year's departure of series creator Hideo Kojima, but few probably expected it this quickly.

Metal Gear Solid V multiplayer DLC detailed, dated

Konami's Metal Gear Solid V debuted last fall, and while it was a big hit among critics and fans, there's been little in the form of new content since then. Players who enjoy the game's multiplayer component, called Metal Gear Online, will be happy to finally hear about an upcoming expansion that will introduce new maps, a new playable character, and even a new game mode. One of the best parts is that the DLC, titled "Cloaked in Silence," is even coming to the older-gen consoles alongside the PS4 and Xbox One.

Konami leaving the AAA games business (save soccer)

Konami leaving the AAA games business (save soccer)

No more Metal Gear Solid from Konami - that's what the publisher is said to be executing this season. Right after the release of Metal Gear Online, that is - that'll take place October 6th. Earlier this morning it was made official that Fox Engine (the engine behind Metal Gear Solid) director Julien Merceron was leaving the company, and now it's become apparent that they're leaving MGS behind entirely. They'll still be making Pro Evolution Soccer... so don't worry about that.

Metal Gear Solid V PC disk is just a Steam installer

Purchasers of the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain physical edition have found that their disks do not contain the actual game.

This week we're not the only ones getting pumped up about the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. One fan has gone the extra mile to customize their PlayStation 3 for the release.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain E3 trailer crosses the line

The newest trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is also the bloodiest. It's not something you're going to want to watch if you've just eaten lunch. Here you'll see the story of being "a child when we were raided by soldiers." Behold the tape, as well. There lies the song "From the man who sold the world" - whether or not it's a song or an invitation, we'll find out soon enough.

Konami apologizes for “mobile first” miscommunication

Konami apologizes for “mobile first” miscommunication

Although unsurprisingly hailed by mobile gamers as the way of the future, Konami president Hideki Hayakawa's statements about a "mobile first" mission for the company caused no small amount of fans to panic. Considering the company's biggest franchises, Silent Hill and Metal Gear, are console titles, that shock and even anger is equally understandable. Now Konami is coming out to clarify those statements and apologize for the confusion. Apparently, Konami has a different interpretation of the term "mobile first" which, for the company, just means "mobile too".

Konami President: shifting gears from consoles to mobile

Konami President: shifting gears from consoles to mobile

The gaming landscape is changing rapidly. Smartphones, previously relegated to casual games like snake, have become serious instruments of play, to the point that even stubborn Nintendo can no longer deny its lucrative appeal. The latest big name in the gaming industry to bite the mobile bullet is Konami, whose new president Hideki Hayakawa was quoted, in translation, of course, to practically say that the company's future will lie primarily in mobile games, or at least games that can span the divide separating devices and experiences.

Konami signals USA exit (sort of)

Konami signals USA exit (sort of)

This week several facts have come to light with big implications for Konami's future. One has to do with their upcoming (axed) horror game "Silent Hills". Another has to do with the New York Stock Exchange. A third fact surfaced this past May - and we'll see it pop up again soon: Konami's profits. They're not going away as a company - they've got their business spread out well enough not to have to worry about that. But they might be leaving the USA.
