There's little ground left to cover in the original Metal Gear timeline, so now that Kojima has left the series, they'll reboot the franchise by exploring the alternative timeline of Ghost Babel.

[[WMG: Metal Gear Solid VI will show how Snake and Big Boss first met, with the former's subsequent induction into FOXHOUND]]
What better way to bring the series full circles than to flesh out Snake's origin story? It might even be set in Iraq during The Gulf War when Snake [[ContinuityNod infiltrated Iraq with a couple of Green Berets]], when Snake would have been only 18 at most and therefore at his greenest. He'll probably be depicted as being in a stark contrast with his future self, being much more idealistic, patriotic, and more reluctant to use lethal force (expect a CallForward to his scolding of Meryl from MGS1, "You hesitate for ''one second'' and it's over.")

It is revealed in MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain that [[spoiler: Venom Snake is a second Big Boss given fake memories and made into a body double for the real one, who is off building the real Outer Heaven in Zanzibar Land at that time. The original MetalGear is about the real Big Boss using Solid Snake to get rid of the "Phantom" Big Boss/Venom Snake, who hijacked Outer Heaven from him. The misleading codec calls and lies from Big Boss later in the game are all from Venom who you're trying to kill, while the truthful codec calls early in the game are from the real Big Boss who is still your commanding officer during the course of that game. The real Big Boss is the one you fight in the sequel.]]

''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' is extremely heavy on {{Call Forward}}s to early games in the series, mostly the first game and ''[[MetalGearSolid Solid]]'', and the fact that the epilogue is basically set right at the start of the first game makes it seem unlikely that there's any more to tell in Big Boss's story. But ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'' more or less closes the door on Solid's story, leaving little room for new games. But there's a solution! The gap between ''MetalGear2'' and ''MetalGearSolid'' is by far the longest between any two consecutive entries in the series, long enough that many younger gamers could easily be forgiven for thinking the series started with ''Solid'', and furthermore, since the NES adaptation of the first game was so different that it's hardly even considered the same game and the second game didn't even have that much, the first two canon games in the series were only ever released on the MSX, a system that was virtually non-existent outside of Japan. Add in the fact that this gap was so long that the series completely skipped a generation of gaming consoles, from 3rd to 5th, and you have two games that stick out quite a bit--being 2D, not voice-acted, etc. A [=3D=] retelling, keeping the story essentially the same (though possibly fleshed out further) but adding the benefits of modern technology, would bring the "lost games" to the masses and updating them to be more in line with the rest of the series in appearance.

With ''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' bridging the gap between ''MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGear'', the bridge will likewise be gapped between ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' and ''MetalGear2SolidSnake''.

** Or rather, Johnny is the only remaining and only successful Genome Soldier. He survived ten years on pure "Soldier Genes" of the highest caliber. He certainly [[Main/MadeOfIron takes bullets]] like a Snake.
*** His codename? [[TheLastDaysOfFOXHOUND Bose-Einsteinium-Condensate Snake]].

Series/{{House}} is the fourth clone of Big Boss and he found a way to fix and reverse the rapid aging problem, along with FOXDIE. Through cardboard box-related threats, Snake made him share this secret with him and became young again/FOXDIE-less. He faked his own death so that far into the future he could become the mysterious Master Chief. And, in the past, Ocelot fathered [[Manga/DeathNote Light Yagami]], [[CodeGeass Lelouch Lamperouge]], and many others, including God. Because his ManipulativeBastard / ChessMaster / MagnificentBastard skills are InTheBlood.
