The Metal Gear Solid Board Game Has Been Delayed Again
Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game is now set to launch sometime in the summer of 2021.
For those of you who are trying to get your Metal Gear Solid fix in any way now that the series is practically dead, you might have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the board game.
Via Polygon, the publisher behind the tabletop game, IDW Games, announced on Friday that we can expect to get our hands on it sometime in the summer of 2021. This wasn’t the first delay Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game has had. Back in November of 2019, IDW announced a delay that pushed the release back until the summer of 2020. The recent statement to customers who pre-ordered stated that the publisher will be pushing it back an entire year.
On top of the delay, the developers had an update on the final price of the board game as well. The price will be a little bit higher than expected. However, those who already backers and have paid $109 for their pre-orders will not see a price increase. The statement reads: “After additional development work, we’ve determined that moving forward, the game will be $125. So, you’ll be saving $16 for your early support!”
The publisher behind the board game has stated that there will be more updates in “the next few months.” This will be everything from gameplay coverage, components for the board game, and missions. It was also mentioned that those who pre-ordered the game will receive an invite to a virtual edition of Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game in Tabletop Simulator and Tabletopia next year in March of 2021.
While yes, this is a blow for all of those huge Metal Gear fans out there who were looking forward to this board game. However, the news of Metal Gear Solid V players on the PS3 disarming all of the nukes online and unlocking the secret ending might make up for it.
