Konami Digital Entertainment has provided a brief update on the Metal Gear Survive release date during the company’s latest financial report earlier this week.
The publisher confirmed that the upcoming action-adventure spin-off is still on track to ship in 2017 for PS4, PC, and Xbox One, putting to rest doubts that the game would not make it out this year. Nonetheless, this is the only update we’ve heard on the game since its announcement last summer.

Metal Gear Survive is a non-canon outing in the venerable stealth-action franchise, taking place in an alternate dimension following the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Here, members of Big Boss’s elite group of soldiers find themselves transported by a wormhole to a mysterious landscape populated by zombie-like beings, and must survive against the hordes by cooperating together.
The game has received a mixed reception from players following its reveal and is notable as being the first Metal Gear title to be developed following creator Hideo Kojima’s departure from Konami in December 2015. The famed game designer left the studio following completion of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and went on to establish his own, independent branch of Kojima Productions where he is currently working on PS4-exclusive action title, Death Stranding.
