It's been a long while since we've seen anything noteworthy from the Metal Gear series, with the poorly received Metal Gear Survive being Konami's only proper release since famous creator Hideo Kojima left the company. However, is that all about to change in 2023?

In a developer spotlight piece by Japanese site Famitsu, Metal Gear Solid producer Noriaki Okamura has hinted at what's to come from Konami in the near future. The producer says that 2023 "is going to be a year with many announcements", including a "long awaited" reveal from the company.

Of course, that isn't confirmation of anything Metal Gear related, but, we're not sure what else could be considered 'long awaited' from Konami at this stage. Silent Hill is already undergoing its own revival following several announcements earlier this year, and now fans are eager to hear what's next from the Metal Gear franchise.

Knowing Konami's recent history it's probably best to temper any expectations for now but still, it's looking like Metal Gear could be thrust back into the spotlight sooner rather than later. Although, without Hideo Kojima at the helm, we have no real idea how any sort of series revival would turn out.

Are you hyped for more Metal Gear some day? Or are you more interested in Kojima's projects? Let us know!
