It’s no big secret that Konami and Kojima productions are working on something big. Dubbed “Project Ogre” to be exact. While not a whole lot of information has been released to the public regarding what type of game or what type of genre it will be, we do know that Kojima Productions and Konami Corp are working on the next MGS.
Kojima Productions and Platinum Games collaboration will feature Kenji Saito as the main Director for the upcoming game Metal Gear Rising. Saito was the main programmer on Bayonetta.
As reported earlier, Metal Gear series Creator Hideo Kojima originally wanted to finish Metal Gear Solid: Rising with expectations of a stealth ninja action game. However the project was scrapped due to the ineffectiveness of combining stealth and the ninja action the studio wanted to implement. The Kojima Productions staff did not feel that stealth and high speed action would work well together.
Fans have voiced their concerns that this will not be a “true” Metal Gear game without the stealth component. Metal Gear Rising will be playable at this years Electronic Entertainment Expo. The game is due out this late this year.
Bye Bye 2011, you were truly amazing in terms of first party exclusives and surprisingly good titles. It was a non-stop party ’til the very end. I’ve battled the Helghast on planet Helghan, jumped off a plane in Rub’ al Khali, journeyed through the Mississippi river to New York City looking for a way to save humanity, undergone augmentation to survive a vicious attack, base jumped off a cliff in Damavand Peak and climbed 600 stairs to the top of a mountain called the Throat of the World, searching for my destiny. I salute you 2011, but times have come for a new year and new games to look forward to.
Kojima-san along with members from KOJIMA Production and Platinum Games explain in this video the truth behind their collaboration and how Metal Gear Rising was reinvented.
