Konami launched Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 a few months ago, and it has been well-received by nostalgic fans of the franchise. The compilation has attracted players who wanted to repurchase and enjoy the titles from the Metal Gear series, which significantly increased profits for Konami in the last quarter of 2023. This increase in profits is mainly attributed to the sale of 900,000 copies of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Volume 1, and the exclusive launch of Momotaro Dentetsu World in Japan.
Konami reported a 53% increase in profits, and its video game division now represents almost 70% of the company’s income. In total, it has entered 1.2 billion dollars in their gaming area, leading to an expansion of their forecasts for the year 2024. This growth in the gaming division has sparked speculations about the release of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 2.
The Metal Gear saga is in excellent health, with sales reaching 61.1 million copies, according to the official website. Though there is no official confirmation from Konami about the release of Master Collection Vol. 2, it is evident that the franchise is a significant source of revenue for the company. Fans will likely have to wait several months to receive official news from Konami regarding the next installment.
