Legendary game designer and creator, Hideo Kojima, responsible for Zone of the Enders and the Metal Gear Solid series has spoken up about the possibility of Metal Gear Solid 5 being worked on anytime soon.
Speaking about out about MGS5 which will be running the new Fox Engine developed by Kojima Productions had this to say.
About 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.
Something may be lost in translation as the above was translated from Japanese to French and then to English so with “earning favor”, he may be referring to the recruitment and loyalty aspect of Peace Walker, which was a key element of that title.
Snake “recruiting” new staff
With the future of MGS games and possible directions for influences affecting those games, Kojima had the following to say.
I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we’ll see.
Another bit of great news is that he also mentioned that he was definitely not done with Solid Snake even though he did want him to die at the end of MGS4: Guns of the Patriots.
More Metal Gear and possible more Solid Snake? Japandaman says, “yes please!”
