We knew in September that former Bond author Raymond Benson was writing a sequel to his Metal Gear Solid novelization which was released in May of this year. Today comes confirmation from Benson himself that the sequel will be Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. Obviously this makes sense. It’s the second game in the Metal Gear Solid series (though not the Metal Gear series) and was released for the PlayStation 2 in 2001. It was later released as Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance for the Xbox in 2003.
I guess if this is successful Benson could be back for Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (PlayStation 2, 2004) and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots (PlayStation 3, 2008).
According to Raymond the book should be out sometime next autumn. If you’re interested in the first, check out Amazon.com.
