Sequels, whether we like it or not, are the essence of pop culture. Where would the spectacle of Avengers: Infinity War be without all the previous Marvel movies? Such is the case with video games but not every game can see a continuation. Whether it’s development troubles, a focus on other projects or the story being wrapped with the last game, here are 15 games that may never get a direct sequel. Never say never but don’t hold your breath either.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
Yes, we had Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain but those were prequels. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was a spin-off that focused on Raiden (and was somewhat confirmed as non-canon by creator Hideo Kojima). As it stands, Metal Gear Solid 4 offered the most complete ending for Solid Snake possible as he embraced the desire to live for himself despite all the trauma faced. There’s also all that jazz about the Patriots being defeated, Meryl getting married and everyone generally living happily ever after as well.
