Next Metal Gear Game Teased


A recently uncovered, cryptic developer web page suggests something new and Metal Gear-related is coming down the pike…but what?

An excruciatingly vague teaser page popped up last night on Metal Gear Solid developer Kojima Productions’ official site. The page initially flashes the Konami logo then the text “A next Metal Gear is…” accompanied by a series of neon green symbols. While this could signify an entirely new game is on it ways, it might also be related to potential plans for an Xbox 360 version of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

After a lengthy bout of denying plans to bring MGS4 to the Xbox 360, Konami did recently imply it may be considering bringing the title to Microsoft’s console due to the system’s growing popularity. The green color of the symbols on the Kojima teaser site and the inclusion of a symbol that looks like the Xbox 360’s power button may hint that such a plan is indeed in the works. However, the power button symbol is used on many other consoles and electronic devices, and the “i” and “!” could be related to the Wii, iPhone, DSi, iPod or some other iDevice.

Would I like to see a Metal Gear game on Nintendo’s DSi, the Wii, or a new title for the PSP? Hell, yes. It looks like we may have a bit of a wait until we can get to the bottom of this. What do you think the teaser could be hinting at, and what would you like it to mean?
