Konami have confirmed at E3 that Metal Gear Survive will not make its 2017 release window and has now been pushed back until early 2018.
Metal Gear Survive takes place after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and is a spin-off from the series introducing zombies into the franchise. The game has both a single player and multiplayer mode where the player will take on hoards of zombies in the world of Metal Gear.
When the game was first revealed at last year’s E3, there was some backlash from fans upset at Hideo Kojima’s departure from the series, and even Kojima criticized the direction the franchise was now going in, stating that: “That’s nothing to do with me! The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage. Where do zombies fit in with that?”
