Metal Gear Solid series has sold over 30 million copies in total worldwide, an impressive figure revealed to us today. Next year the franchise celebrates its 25th anniversary, and is one of the longest running franchises ever. The series started in 1987 and has finally sold 30 million worldwide according to Kojima Productions’ manager of public relations, Jiro Oishi.
” The series “Metal Gear” has sold over 30 million copies worldwide. There may be other more impressive record, but if we take into account the platforms and the number of titles in the series, it’s awesome!”
The last numbered Metal Gear Solid game was exclusive to the PS3, and is rumoured to be the last one in the series but it’s you can’t really trust Kojima. Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3 HD collection will release this year for the PS3 and the Xbox 360 and Metal Gear Rising starring Raiden will release sometime next year.
