Hideo Kojima seems resigned to the fact that he’ll “eventually” have to make Metal Gear Solid 5.
Despite the fact that Metal Gear Solid 4 seemed to contain a definite end to the main storyline of Solid Snake, fans haven’t been too quiet about their hopes for a sequel. Now, Hideo Kojima has admitted that he’ll probably have to make that sequel, eventually, but he has no idea what the game will contain.
Speaking to Official PlayStation Magazine Kojima explained that, yes, the game will probably happen, but his involvement won’t be nearly as hands-on as it has been in the past:
“I think we’ll probably have to make it [a sequel to MGS4] at some point, but what that will be, we have no idea.”
“As far as my involvement in the project is concerned, [it] probably won’t be as much as it was with MGS1 – maybe I can do just one stage!”
“For MGS1 I made the maps myself, laid out the enemy routes myself, did everything hands-on – that level I can’t do again.”
At the moment, Kojima is working on a mystery title that’s only known as Project Ogre. However, he’s also got Metal Gear Solid Rising in the works, which he’s set to reveal more information about at the Spike Video Game Awards next month.
