Metal Gear Rising voice actor claims announcements in ‘the coming weeks’

The voice actor who plays Raiden in the Metal Gear Solid games has seemingly teased that there may be new announcements related to the Konami series soon.

Quinton Flynn has played Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and last week tweeted a video advertising his Cameo page.

On Monday, a follower replied to the video, stating that the 10th anniversary of Metal Gear Rising would be in February 2023.

This caused another follower to reply earlier today, wondering if a possible Metal Gear Rising 2 could be on the way, perhaps with an announcement as part of a larger Metal Gear showcase stream.

“Stay tuned for things to be announced in the coming weeks,” Flynn replied, with a winking emoji.

It’s not clear whether Flynn was referring to Metal Gear Rising 2, a Metal Gear event or just new Metal Gear news in general.

VGC sources previously claimed in 2021 that Singapore-based studio Virtuos was working on a new version of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

VGC later reported that an employee at Virtuos had claimed it’s working on an “unannounced [triple-A] action adventure game remake”, following our report that it had been handed the MGS license.

Modern ports of the original Metal Gear Solid games are also understood to be planned, with a reveal for all projects likely this year.

In October, actor Oscar Isaac commented on the long-in-development Metal Gear Solid movie, saying that he still wants it to happen.

In 2021 it was reported that the project, which has been in various stages of development for some years, was finally progressing with Isaac as the lead, director by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kong: Skull Island).

“We want it to happen,” Isaac told “Be excited. What’s the script? What’s the story? What’s the take? […] But hopeful that comes to fruition because there’s so much potential for that. It’s an incredible game. It’s my favorite.”
