The game is expected to be released between April 2013 and May 2014, according to Japanese investment analyst company Nomura Securities.
A financial report carried out on Konami revealed the potential for 24% growth over the coming financial year, and a further 15% the following year, with the release of Metal Gear Solid 5 attributed to the latter.
Following its strong social gaming performance, Nomura Securities has raised its outlook on Konami from neutral to buy, reports Andriasang.
Metal Gear Solid 5 was confirmed by series creator Hideo Kojima last November.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was said to be the last game in the series to star protagonist Solid Snake.
