Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has proven to be a hit, selling five million copies worldwide. According to today’s Nikkei, the Tokyo-based fitness company has began internal talks about the next Metal Gear title.
The print edition of Nikkei (via 2ch) reports that Konami is mulling over plans for another title in the popular stealth series. The newspaper adds that Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, who is apparently on vacation, has not said whether or not he’ll be involved in the next title.
“When we start development, a large-scale investment will become necessary,” Konami is quoted as saying by the recent Nikkei article.
