The Metal Gear Solid Board Game Has Been Delayed

The Metal Gear Solid Board Game Is Coming in 2021

IDW Games is working on a Metal Gear Solid board game for fans of the series, but they’ll have to wait a bit longer than initially expected. In November 2019, IDW announced that it was pushing the game’s release to summer 2020, but now the board game won’t be releasing until summer 2021. The delay is apparently necessary due to the fact that IDW Games doesn’t want to compromise a quality table-top experience just to release it on time. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC for fans to fill the void until the release of the Metal Gear Solid board game.

“In the fall of 2019, we made the hard decision to delay the release of MGS to this year in order to refine the design and give you, the players, the best experience possible,” said IDW Games in a recent statement. “Today, we’ve made the even more difficult decision to delay the game once more to the summer of 2021. Our mission is to have you all enjoying this breakthrough system before Gencon, whether we can gather to celebrate in-person or remain virtually connected.”

“The big question you probably have right now is ‘why?’ continued the statement from IDW Games. “The answer is simple. We will not compromise our standards for the quality of game our community deserves. We are steadfastly committed to working with acclaimed designer Emerson Matsuuchi to bring his vision for this title to life on the tabletop no matter how much time it takes. Before you start to worry about the possibility of another delay, we are pleased to share that the game is entering its final round of playtesting this week!”
