Hideo Kojima Thinks Metal Gear Solid V Won’t Be The End, but The next Could Have a Different Theme

Legendary Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has gone on record multiple times saying that he wants to quit the historical franchise, but apparently he isn’t so ready to stop telling the adventures of Snake’s war-torn universe.

Kojima, please quit while you're ahead. For over a decade, you've been saying you wanted to move on from Metal Gear. People still want Zone of the Enders 3 or something new, too! (coming from a long-time MG fan; all good things must end)

If it's what he wants to do then let him. He could easily just quit. Remember. It's his baby. If I had a successful project and new tech kept coming out I could use to improve I would see where I could take it next.

Kojima has said the his vision for the games has always been limited by the technology of the time. Now that Technology is better, it could be making him more excited to make games.

Glad he isn't stopping. Was worried when two years ago he said that the controversy surrounding an "upcoming project" could make him leave the video game industry.

I'm guessing whatever he was worried about isn't as big of a deal as he originally felt it to be.

Here's hope for Metal Gear 1 and 2 as he envisioned it years ago.

Pillsbury1790d ago

Please stop, have you played mgs5 ground zeroes? I rented it and I was blown away. This makes me even more excited for anything mgs.

TheDevil15inallofus790d ago

I'm sorry, you're defending GZ's quality and you RENTED it? That's hypocrisy if I've ever heard it

extermin8or789d ago

@thedevil iys a short game ues however its qualiyy isnt up for debate. Oy',!s incredibly high. The full gamr will be amazing.

Fan's want more Metal Gear, and it's what's keeping Konami relevant at this point. However, given the MGS timeline, TPP feels like the the last Metal Gear game before reaching the plot of Metal Gear 1, which takes place in 1995. Kojima can always do FOX Engine remakes, and the Rising series will be the only thing to drive Metal Gear forward after that. Other than Metal Gear, yes, Kojima wants to make another Zone of Enders, but he, himself, also wants to reboot Silent Hill.

ZodTheRipper790d ago

No please, don't bring Rising games into this. The original (stealthy) vision for Rising was amazing but Platinum turned it into a mindless hackfest.
There is still plenty of known stuff in the MGS universe untouched so real MGS games are very possible ...I really hope TPP will not be Kojimas last game for the franchise.

Patrick_pk44789d ago

Rising is horrible for the Metal Gear Solid series plot, it should remain as an alternative universe that will not effect the outcome of the Metal Gear Solid stories. I would love a Fox Engine remake of Metal Gear 1 & 2. However, I want Kojima to start other projects than being exclusives to one, such as Zone of the Enders 3.

TXIDarkAvenger789d ago

Every Metal Gear game was great. I don't see any reason to stop, the quality definitely hasn't dropped over the years.

NewZealander789d ago

Damn straight, this guy is a ass selling people his demo, why people continue to defend his half baked games is beyond me, he should stick to movies...oh mgs4 was a game?

all aboard the kojima hype train!

DAS692789d ago

You have probably never played an MGS game in your life. Good sir. "Half Baked" is COD. Hideo goes out of his way to add details beyond imagination in his video games. Half baked is inFAMOUS:SS that game doesn't even have a swim mechanic! and after you finish the main story, there isn't much else to do in the game. THAT'S HALF BAKED. There has never been one MGS game that I haven't played REPEATEDLY even if the story is linear, there are so many details that you can miss if you don't play it right that you always want to play again. Not to mention the story that is also INCREDIBLY DETAILED. Lol... Your comment is pathetic on all fronts gtfo.

NewZealander788d ago

DAS692 ok mgs on ps2 was a good game for the time (yes i played it) but mgs4 (played that too) was the most contrived piece of media i have ever seen, what little game-play was there was sloppy, yes it may have been pretty, mostly in cut scenes, but it was nothing more then a jumbled mess of cut scenes and freakin fried eggs and emo fembot ninjas, i am sorry but there are too many kojima ass kissers in this world, hes nothing more then the japenese version of molyneux.

I really hope he would make something original other than Metal Gear to see if he is a one trick pony or not just like Christopher can make a movie like Inception other the his Batman Trilogy.

Allsystemgamer790d ago

He also made zone of the Enders which are both great. 2 more so than 1

Kyosuke_Sanada790d ago

Where were you during Zone Of Enders, Boktai, Snatcher and Policenauts? Metal Gear was his main focus for the last couple years but he has shown that he is capable of making others. The question is it because of pressure from Konami or he has some backlog of information he would like to bring to light. What I believe that he simply hasnt found a successor to take the reins of the series yet. Also watch Dark City......it's much better than Inception.

No_Limit790d ago (Edited 790d ago )

I get what you are saying but those games even though great (I love Zone of Ender), are not the AAA blockbusters that is Metal Gear. I mean to say if he can create another game with Metal Gear potential. Think about it, Konami has been riding on Metal Gear for to [email protected] long, they really need another new blockbuster franchise to ensure future survival of the company.

Kyosuke_Sanada790d ago

I do agree that he has ridden it for too long. What I would like to see him do is tie the knot to make the series full circle (at the end of Metal Gear 2). Anything beyond that make cause the series eat its own tail. Ground Zeroes pretty much started to split the franchise already however so the future has me worried as well.

Kyosuke_Sanada790d ago

Just make sure stealth is the key factor here. We already have too much action shooters and I would hate to see Metal Gear decide to follow suit wholeheartedly....

Pillsbury1790d ago

I want more MGS! Give me as much as you can kojima.

nope111790d ago

Oh Yes Kojima! FILL ME WITH YOUR MGS.

Allsystemgamer790d ago

You implying you want his solid snake?
