Kojima Confirms Metal Gear Solid 5.

June 21st, 2012 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Hideo Kojima has confirmed development on Metal Gear Solid 5, revealing some small details on the game and hinting that Solid Snake’s story is not over just yet.

“There will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine,” said Kojima, “but what we’ve shown was not gameplay, or anything like that. It was only a demo that we had developed internally and released because the lighting and interactions with the environment had fooled everyone.”
“About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things,” Kojima continued, “there will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you “a favor” like in the last Metal Gear Solid”.
“I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see. And if I say more, the female ninja public relations officer, who is behind the door, I will be carved up into pieces. So it’s better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about Metal Gear Solid 5.”
Kojima mentioned Metal Gear Rising and pointed to Solid Snake’s future.
“Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid. This is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots,” he said.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is set to come out in early 2013.
