In a recent interview with French magazine IG, the creator and creative director of the Metal Gear Solid series, Hideo Kojima, has released some info about his next installment in the Metal Gear Solid series. He has said the game will be running on Konami’s own Fox Engine and he has been quoted to say “On the topic of Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you ‘a favor’ like in the last Metal Gear Solid.” This left me wondering if Kojima is looking to make the Metal Gear Solid world more expanded and interactive. This thought was solidified when Kojima told the magazine “I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see.”
Oh and before people start trying to find hints of Metal Gear Solid 5 in Metal Gear Rising: Revengance when it comes out, just know that Kojima has also stated “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never pretended to be Metal Gear Solid. It’s not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It’s a spin-off that tries something different.”
Well, I personally thought that Metal Gear Solid 4 was the last game for dear old Snake. I would’t mind jumping in the shoes of Snake once again but seeing all the events that lead up to Metal Gear Solid 4 and seeing the ending, one would think that was the ultimate finale for Snake. Well it’s up to the creator though to say when to say the character’s final journey is but I leave off with Kojima’s insightful quote from the IG magazine interview “We haven’t seen the last of Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots”
Ah if this is going to happen it would be incredible.
