ZOE3 After MGS: Rising, says Kojima

Good old Kojima can’t keep secrets, it seems. After saying that he will not be releasing ZOE3 for some time, as his team has limited resources, he has more or less confirmed that he will work on Zone of the Enders 3 after Rising.

Looks like Kojima has a lot of work to do, right?

rockleex3083d ago

Ahah j/k. :P

*erases threat mail and sends thank you note instead*

But I seriously want Kojima to work on something OTHER than Metal Gear Solid. It's been such a long while since he tried out something new.

ZOE was one of ps2'S all time sleeper hits, its about time the sequel has been announced.

The absolute best mech game ive ever played period.........ZOE 3 FTW

Do the people at Gamingbolt refuse to do research when they write an article? Just curious because had they and the people that approved this article done so they would see that he is going to look at ZOE 3 AFTER his next game - he doesn't mean Rising. He stated his next game will be either MGS5 or his secret unknown title. AFTER that he will look at possibly doing ZOE3.

While this allows the title of this article to be true from a technical point of view is misleading as hell.

Here is the simple research that should have been done in the first place:

"I only have two choices for what to make: MGS5, or an original game," Kojima said. "As for ZOE and the rest, I'm sorry, but that kind of got pushed to the back burner. It's not that I'm at a loss for what to do -- it'll definitely be a console game, and it'll be the sort of big-budget project where I'm dead if we screw it up. No matter which way we go, we've got the engine all set for it; the technical side is going along smoothly."

"Regardless of what he ends up doing with the next project, Kojima assured it would be for consoles.

Asked by Hamamura if the new game will be Metal Gear Solid 5, Kojima responded "For the next game I make, it's either MGS5 or an original game. I only have these two choices." He also brought up ZOE here without being asked: "Regarding Anubis and so-forth, sorry -- those will be pushed a bit into the future. I'm 47 this year, and I don't know when something might happen (laughs)."

Even the part of the article Gamingbolt references doesn't confirm anything. They fail to give JeuxFrance credit which is tantamount to resource plagiarism. Looking at the possiblity of doing a game is a far cry from actually developing said game.

Thanks to Gamingbolt for poor journalism and what is so far the biggest misleading article of the week.

I played the MG demo that came with ZOE more then ZOE itself.

WOW I'll Love ZOE3, PS3 Exclusive preferably, Come on Kojima-san, That MGS4 Engine Needs Some Use...

himdeel3082d ago

...on something else. Likewise I can see some MAJOR optimization of that engine so that we don't have the long load times between levels/chapter.

It wouldn't make sense to me if they were already working on optimizing the engine now for their next game. All that money for an engine on one game just seems fiscally wrong.

Spenok3082d ago

Almost to much. Its all very well worth it though.

I'm more pumped about Lords of SHadow, to be completely honest.

Rainstorm813083d ago

You arent the only one, as long as ive been waiting for a new ZOE, C:LoC looks amazing.

I know I will get disagrees but it looks like the only competitor for GOW3, dare i say it i could be better.

disagree away......

Information Minister3082d ago (Edited 3082d ago )

I absolutely agree. I'm surprised by the fact there's almost no hype at all for C:LoS, but that may actually be a good thing. The game seems to successfully blend the classic Castlevania gameplay with the modern game design of GoW. It reminds me a lot of GoW3 and that's a win on my book. I don't think it will surpass GoW3, but C:LoS is definitely on my radar.

And quite possibly the game that single handily destroys every game on the 360 therefore starting the next gen where Microsoft has to make the xbox 720 just to stay in the market.

I seriously think im gonna start bawling. LOL! Call me a puss, I dont care. I cannot wait to see what he does with this franchise. Oh I can imgaine the gorgeous particle effects already.

C L O U D3083d ago

Ahhh, can't wait to see JEHUTY, ANUBIS and those orbital frames again... :)

DA_SHREDDER3083d ago

Yeah, in 3-D, with online, hopefully a huge outer map like in ZOE 1. Being able to cruise around Mars and seeing all the colonies below really added great immersion. Hopefully its a real sequel to part 1.

Wasnt anubis destroyed in ZOE2?
