French IG Magazine’s June/July issue interviewed Hideo Kojima and he has confirmed that development for Metal Gear Solid 5 is underway.
“There will be a MGS5 with the new Fox Engine,” confirmed Kojima, “but what we showed was not the in-game play, or something like that, says Hideo Kojima. It was only a demo that we had developed internally and that we released because the lighting and all interactions with the environment had fooled everyone.”
Kojima also goes on to say that “Metal Gear Solid 5 will have much more espionage, infiltration, and more people to give you a ‘favor’,” much like previous metal gears. I like the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see how it works with MGS. He goes on to say that if he says “anymore, the female ninja public relations officer will come after me and carve me to pieces. So it’s better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about MGS5.”
Mr. Kojima also mentioned Metal Gear Rising. “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is not a Solid Snake game. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We are not yet finished with Solid Snake. Despite that fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots.”
