Seriously, we're doing the whole "This is my last Metal Gear" again?  I really hope Kojima shifts focus to Silent Hill or something else.

Is much more important to take notice of Kojima's comment on 'closing the loop of the saga with TTP' than focusing on the "is this your last Metal Gear?" question.

For the big MGS fans, how do you feel that Konami vows to continue the series after Kojima leaves?

Are you happy there will be more MGS or are you let down that they'll never wrap it up and a convoluted story will go on forever?

For the big MGS fans, how do you feel that Konami vows to continue the series after Kojima leaves?

I give my first thoughts on this news here. But to expand on that, how I feel about the continuation of the series without Kojima and KojiPro's involvement is that is most likely gonna be as awkward as it was for every other IP from Konami was in the past, when key members of their staff leave or go to do something else inside or outside of the company (Suikoden, Silent Hill and Castlevania were all heavenly affected by this).

That being said, there's still a lot of details we don't know and much less how is that this situation is gonna develop over time.

Are you happy there will be more MGS or are you let down that they'll never wrap it up and a convoluted story will go on forever?

Given how MGS4 already ended the timeline and overall story of the main series in the most definitive way possible, the only thing left for MGSV: TPP to do is (like Kojima said) close the loop on the saga.

Various aspect of the series should come together with TPP considering the place it takes within the series. But more than just that, one should never try understand the main series only in terms if it's narrative and continuity are consistent. The creative intention of Kojima's games (the Boktai series being maybe an exception) has always been to make the player read between the lines and think of the overall theme(s) the game in question presents.

Now, regarding the "new Metal Gear" I feel that is gonna be a reboot. Handing the IP to new devs of a series that has almost 30 years of work put into it might be too much responsibility to maintain. I am happy about it? Well... with how the potential successor of Kojima died sadly of cancer a few years ago (Project Itoh/Satoshi Ito) this outcome was expected to happen at some point. How it has happened however it hasn't pleasant to see at all. Lastly, I do wonder what the "power struggle" is actually about.

EDIT: Searched for info to remind myself if Boktai was directed or not by Kojima just to be sure. And he was a producer for all the 4 games that series got.

It's been wrapped up with MGS4.

I haven't gotten around to MG Rising yet, but that's the game that seems to continue the story.

If they let Platinum do it? I might not be so upset. It's a wait and see at this point.

Rising it's a parallel story post-MGS4. A what if scenario if you prefer. It has no real bearing on the canonical side of Metal Gear.
