Metal Gear Survive is an upcoming co-op stealth-action survival game by Konami Digital Entertainment. It is the first Metal Gear game to be developed since Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami in late 2015, as well as the second Metal Gear-related project to be conducted since the same time period (the first being a pachislot adaptation of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater).

Following the evacuation of Big Boss and Kazuhira Miller from the besieged Mother Base, a wormhole opens in the sky and absorbs the offshore plant as well the remaining MSF soldiers. The soldiers are transported to an alternate reality along with the remains of Mother Base, to find the world full of hostile, crystalline zombie-like entities.
Metal Gear Survive was first announced on August 16, 2016 during the Gamescom 2016 event. However, this was not the first time the concept of a zombie game was toyed with, as Hideo Kojima admitted on April 29, 2013 that he always wanted to make one during Metal Gear Solid V‘s development. The game’s development was first hinted at on December 17, 2015 when Konami started recruiting for a new Metal Gear development staff.
Konami Europe president Tomotada Tashiro described Metal Gear Survive as a “fresh take on the series’ famed stealth elements”, all with a “unique co-op setting that is designed for a truly engrossing multiplayer experience.”
