Metal Gear Solid: Rising Gets a New Producer. Again.


According to Joytiq, there seems to be some shuffling going on over at Kojima Productions. Hideo Kojima passed the producer role for MGS: Rising to Shigenobu Matsuyama in June 2010, but now it has been confirmed that production responsibilities will now land on Yuji Korekado, who is also working on ZOE HD.

The game is scheduled to have more of a showing at this year’s VGAs (on December 10th), but it begs the question: with the shuffling of producers, is there something inherently wrong with the game or is the game’s direction so questionable that these guys don’t want to take the reigns? I guess we’ll have to wait until December to see what we’re getting.

    I thought this game was cancelled.

    @Tosh: I couldn’t agree more with ZOE3. That would be incredible. I still do want the HD collection though.

    I didn’t even know MGS:R Kojima wasn’t producing. No wonder this game has been delayed for so long, with no new news

    probably still get the game tho does seem like an interesting idea just not expecting a metal gear type game at all. Ye seen that as well about MGS 5 cant bloody wait to hear more tho i thought he said 4 was going to be the last one

    Surprised no one post the MGS5 Confirmation yet lol.

    Also, Kokima has said that a MGS was his last since MGS3 lol

    Speaking of MGS5, I’m really curious where they’re going to take it. 4 made a great conclusion.
