Andraisang: In an interview appearing in this week's Famitsu, summed up by our usual magazine leak sources, Enterbrain CEO Hirokazu Hamamura asks if the new game is "5." Kojima responds "What do you mean by 5 (laughs)?".
I don't want it. He's said he wants to move on after pretty much every installment, and MGS4 actually gave him a window. It was Snake's swan song. He went back and filled in a gap with another PSP prequel, but that's it, move on to a new IP. MGS4 was a perfect ending to the series' story. Let your underlings make spin-offs like the Raiden game if they want, but I don't think Kojima needs to be/wants to be involved in MGS anymore.
I'm not so against another MGS as you, but I would prefer he to show some love for Zone of the Enders, or maybe practice necromancy on Snathcer/Policenauts franchise.
agreed.. I'd rather them just end it instead of making a bunch of spin offs like that one raiden game.. gives me a bad taste in my mouth and ruins the nastalgia lol
@Megaton so true. Why do ppl want metal gear 5? snake wont be in it even if he is, he is not the lead, big boss cant be in it. Whos left?? raiden? already has a game. I like metal gear as much as everyone (big fan of it) but i dont want to see a sequel just for the sake of a sequel.
Either way MGS5 will be gimped, being it will be a multiplat. Konami has a gun pointed at Kojima's head to release titles for the Xbox3Fixme
"Konami has a gun pointed at Kojima's head to release titles for the Xbox360" no one forced him, Kojima-san is the VP of Konami he makes his own decisions now
Big Boss can't be in it? Hmmm... well if he was in MGS 3 I don't see why he couldn't be in another. That really makes no sense to say he couldn't be in it.
It would have to be another prequel. If you finished MGS4, you'd know why. Kojima has patched in all the gaps as far as I know, so another prequel with Big Boss would be redundant.
Yes, I have played Mgs 4. Obviously it would be a prequel. I agree to an extent. But there is a lot of time in between the events of Peacewalker and Metal Gear. I would only want it if Kojima WANTED to make it.
Time to move on, and if GOD forbid its a new MGS make it a remake of MGS1, or just one of the original Metal Gears. Just to satisfy hardcore fans. As much as I love Snake as the story stands now. all has been said what there was to say.
if hideo kojima makes a MGS5 5 i will refuse too suport him, he's a waste of talent if he stays with the milked MGS franchise.. IF he moves on and creates a new fresh games ill buy his game day 1
zoe 3 please . and what do u people think that hes just gonna slap together a mgs game and 'voala mgs5' course hes gonna be involved and whatever he dicides to do it will be of the highest quality so i will support that.
MGS was an exceptional IP, please Kojima san don't soil the greatness which is Metal Gear...you have already gone to far with the remasterd edtion for Xbox as well [which makes no sense at all]...let snake rest, he deserves it.
