The lights are on
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is due out early next year, and Konami would love to work on a sequel, pending Revengeance's fan reception.
“If people like Metal Gear Rising, if the fans who play this game ask for more, that would be awesome,” producer Yuji Korekado said.
“That would be great for us and we would be happy to consider working on another game in Metal Gear Rising.”Korekado says that Revengeance couldn't have been made without Platinum or Konami, and a future partnership would be ideal.When asked about possible future games, Korekado thinks there are many possible routes. "We believe in the Metal Gear world," he said. "There are several other characters and settings and other elements that can lead to more projects,” he said. Revengeance is coming to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 next year. PC and Wii U owners are still left out. Korekado said that Konami will consider a PC port, but that there is no talk regarding a Wii U version of the game. (Source: Eurogamer)

Honestly I'm pretty excited for it though I'm not a play station fan, irony huh
I would love for Konami to work with Platinum again. They seem very enthused about it. And from the looks of the demo, it seems the work they do together is outstanding. I hope the final release gets enough praise to seal a future Konami/Platinum partnership.
Game on my radar for sure.
That's really cool for them to publicly say that. Not a lot of companies do. And I second that; if the game is good I'd want a sequel!
I want a game that focuses on Meryl's adventures between MGS and Patriots. I want to see more of The Boss. I want a FOXHOUND team game where you play as Liquid, Sniper, Psycho, Vulcan, Revolver, and Decoy doing covert stuff.
There's a wealth of MGS lore, I want it all.
As long as they leave Snake alone in future games (and don't absolutely butcher this one) then I'm all for more Metal Gear.
I'm really curious & excited to play Revengeance. I hope it does well.
