“Metal Gear” is seemingly spicing things up, at least for one of its voice actors, Quinton Flynn.
It has been around a decade since the release of “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance,” and for a game launched in 2013, it still holds up as one of the best games in the series.
The voice actor, Flynn, renowned for his roles as Raiden in “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” and Jhin in “League of Legends,” teased online that Konami may have future plans for Metal Gear-related projects.
During the previous week, the voice actor promoted his Cameo, a website where fans can hire voice actors to say the lines they want, on his official Twitter account.
Last Monday, a Twitter netizen replied to the said tweet, emphasizing that the 10th year anniversary of “Metal Gear” happens to be next month. This prompted another netizen to respond, wondering if it is possible for “Metal Gear Rising 2” to be announced in an upcoming showcase of “Metal Gear.”
Flynn then responded to that question, saying, “Stay tuned for things to be announced in the coming weeks,” then writing a winking face emoji.
Did that statement excite you?
It is unclear whether the voice actor was teasing a sequel to “Metal Gear Rising” or the “Metal Gear” franchise as a whole.
Back in October, there were reports Konami planned to refocus on developing games within its well-moved series.
According to a Video Games Chronicle report, Konami is actually planning to remaster the original “Metal Gear Solid” games for modern gaming consoles such as the PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X and S. The report also cited a potential remake for the much beloved “Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
Sources told Video Games Chronicle that Virtuos, a Singapore-based studio, will handle the “Metal Gear Solid” remake, and not Bluepoint as many have speculated in the past.
As of now, we can only rely on rumors and speculations. We have to wait for the official announcement from Konami.
“Metal Gear” pertains to a series of techno-thriller stealth games created by Hideo Kojima. Developed and published by Konami, the first game, “Metal Gear,” was launched in 1987 for MSX home computers.
In the game, the player often takes control of a special forces operative – usually Solid Snake or Big Boss – assigned the task of looking for the titular superweapon, “Metal Gear”, a bipedal walking tank with the capability to launch nuclear weapons.
