While there haven’t been any new games in the Metal Gear franchise since 2018’s Metal Gear Survive, the high sales number indicates that it’s still popular. There is a revival on the way though. The Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol 1, a remastered compilation of Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3, is coming to modern systems on October 24, 2023. Metal Gear Solid 3 is also getting a remake in the form of Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater.

Other high-profile franchises in Konami’s financial information include Yu-Gi-Oh! and their sports titles. The Powerful Pro Yakyu baseball series sold 24.8 million copies on consoles, with roughly 40 million downloads for the mobile titles. Their soccer series, eFootball, reached 700 million sales, if sales of older Pro Evolution Soccer and Winning Eleven games are included.

The Metal Gear Solid Master Collection Vol. 1 releases on October 24, 2023 for PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X, and PC. Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater is in development for the PS5.
