Metal Gear Rising 2 / Remaster Hopes Dashed at 10th Anniversary

Konami and PlatinumGames dashed Metal Gear Rising 2 and Metal Gear Rising remaster/remake hopes at Revengeance‘s 10th anniversary. Following several “teases” and rumors, fans got new artwork instead.

There’s no Metal Gear Rising 2 but the commemorative art looks good

Director Kenji Saito penned a letter to fans, thanking them for their support over the last decade. Saito took note of all the Armstrong and Sam memes and said that he finds it “unbelievable” that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is still talked about ten years after launch.

PlatinumGames also revealed that it has seen an increase in player count as well as streamers playing the game, thanks to the discourse surrounding it.

“I still believe that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance offers an experience like no other, even a decade after its launch!” Saito added. “I look forward to creating many more memories with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance in the years to come!”
