It has been a wild year for fans of the Metal Gear series, and very little of that news has been positive. Fans have faced the dissolution of game developer Kojima Productions, the ejection of series showrunner Hideo Kojima from Konami, and a rather disappointing ending to the newest entry in the series, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. It has also been discovered through data mining the source code that there were plans for a third chapter in the game's story mode.
