Hideo Kojima may leave Konami after Metal Gear Series 5: The Phantom Pain comes out but in case such a thing happens what about the future of the series?

Konami has sent a press release stating that fans do not have to worry and there will be more Metal Gear games after MGS5: TPP comes out.

They have also announced that they are developing a new series and are looking to recruit new staff members for the team.

The new Metal Gear series may be developed without any inputs from Kojima Productions and that’s a sad thing to imagine.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be out on September 1, 2005. Considering Metal Gear is Konami’s major IP that brings in money, this is not a surprise. We have yet to know what has happened between the publisher and Kojima Productions.

We will keep you updated.
