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. (Hideo Kojima, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

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)
Allsystemgamer  +   558d ago
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.

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.
TheDevil15inallofus  +   558d ago
I'm sorry, you're defending GZ's quality and you RENTED it? That's hypocrisy if I've ever heard it
extermin8or  +   558d ago
@thedevil iys a short game ues however its qualiyy isnt up for debate. Oy',!s incredibly high. The full gamr will be amazing.
bmf7364  +   558d ago
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.
ZodTheRipper  +   558d 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_pk44  +   558d 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.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   558d ago
Every Metal Gear game was great. I don't see any reason to stop, the quality definitely hasn't dropped over the years.
NewZealander  +   558d 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!
DAS692  +   557d 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.
NewZealander  +   557d 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.
No_Limit  +   558d ago
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.
Allsystemgamer  +   558d ago
He also made zone of the Enders which are both great. 2 more so than 1
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   558d 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_Limit  +   558d 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 d@mn long, they really need another new blockbuster franchise to ensure future survival of the company.
#2.2.1 (Edited 558d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(5) | Report
Kyosuke_Sanada  +   558d 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_Sanada  +   558d 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....
Dark11  +   558d ago
How about a new IP?
Pillsbury1  +   558d ago
I want more MGS! Give me as much as you can kojima.
nope111  +   558d ago
Allsystemgamer  +   558d ago
You implying you want his solid snake?
mediate-this  +   558d ago
He cant quit with mgs, because he got lucky with a hit. If you actually play the game and know the universe, read between the lines, you would see that mgs has a horrible story, too convienient of a plot.

Plot holes, just a over hyped game. Thats my opnion. I dont think hideo has it in him to even make a new game.
candy_mafia  +   558d ago
He can't quit MGS....

He gets 'death threats' otherwise.

goldwyncq  +   558d ago
The next game better be a remake of Metal gear 1 and 2.
feraldrgn  +   558d ago
Oh for god sake, I thought he was going to give it a grand finale.
He wanted to end it at 4, but Konami wouldn't let him, but now he's going to carry it on even further?
Well I hope any future ideas he has for the series is astronomically good then, because I was looking forward to seeing any other game ideas he had.

All I care about is that they get rid Kiefer Sutherland (nothing personal), he is just not the right fit for big boss at all. There's nothing hardened in his voice, no charisma, no maturity, no intelligence, nothing. When Kaz and Boss are talking it sounds like even Kaz would make a better Boss.

Get the guy who voiced Big Boss in MGS4 if they don't want Hayter or someone else. Terrbile jost casting Boss as Sutherland as his voice is literally ruining the game. He sounds more like a grunt or a foot soldier than the legendary soldier.

I think the length of Ground Zeroes has overshadowed how bad Sutherland is as Big Boss. This series is largely character driven and the voice for Big Boss is making it impossible to connect to the character.
SovereignSnaKe  +   558d ago
Totally agree, I would be cool with Richard Doyle who voiced Big Boss in MGS4. I don't know why or how people are okay with Kiefer Sutherland. Sutherland is just awkward and weird. He has no charm, just cold and sterile. His voice is forever imprinted on my brain as Jack Bauer in 24 and nothing he can do is going to change that. The voice acting in Ground Zero's was really lacking compared to other games. I was even disappointed with the NPC Soldiers.
Paul85  +   558d ago
More MGS is always great but at the same time I wish he could make a zoe 3 or new ip.
DC777  +   558d ago
Update. This game will be THREE hours instead of 2. Preorder ASAP.
SaveFerris  +   558d ago
How about a Snatcher remake?
greenking45  +   558d ago
he should team up with yu suzuki and make shenmue 3.
NYC_Gamer  +   558d ago
Kojima will be stuck creating MGS games long as he works for Konami..It's kind of sad because he does wanna work on something fresh but that won't happen due to MGS being the only hit franchise left at Konami.
RPG_Lover  +   558d ago
Without him the series would crumble. He has wanted to leave the series for 10 plus years but he cant.
just-joe  +   558d ago
Doesn't want to be known as the "Metal Gear guy" continues to make Metal Gear games.
KonsoruMasuta  +   558d ago
Konami isn't going to let him stop. Metal Gear makes money and Konami likes money
just-joe  +   558d ago
Has he ever said anything about his relationship with the company? I've never been outspoken about it.
Smashbro29  +   558d ago
I want Solid Snake back, pull some plot bullshit so we can have a neat game like the first again.
solidboss07  +   558d ago
If he had quit then perhaps MGS4 might have been better but...... we now have the Fox Engine, KJProductions LA (MGO), and the game play of MGS5 is better than any stealth game. GZ is one of the most beautiful PS3 games, best enemy A.I ect ect. Its all looking good.

'Kept you waiting, huh?'
"Yes you did, but it was worth it."
e-p-ayeaH  +   558d ago
The enemy AI isnt as good as i expected to be honest...some are pretty dumb
Soldierone  +   558d ago
I want to go back to Solid Snake. Maybe between MGS and MGS2. Or a DLC where you play Snakes portion of MGS2 (since he was sneaking around the facility the whole time)
maximus1985  +   558d ago
hayter will be back, its sooooo obvious. Big boss eventually has to face off against solid snake, why do you think they did this?!
e-p-ayeaH  +   558d ago
The original Metal Gear could use a remake with a proper plot and characters.
Agent_hitman  +   558d ago
I read somewhere that kojima will involved with e next castlevania project..
Run_bare  +   558d ago
Stop trolling and give me Zone of Enders 3
Makkanchor  +   557d ago
Metal gear solid best game ever please continue with this and after phantom pain i would like to see solid snake fight big boss in the next metal gear!!!!
