Huh? So MGS5 isn't in the works right now, is that what I just read?
Batzi  +   1246d ago

Yes you're right!! Nice try OPM but you won't get us buy you're worthless mag by hyping something that doesn't exist! MGS5 IS NOT in development. Thank you OPM for the hype and for the LIE. -_-

and yet it was the OPM that told you all this information on their website while it was a lot of gaming blogs that tried to hype up the information last week
morganfell  +   1246d ago
Plenty of people were able to see the fact the timeline doesn't fit.

http://n4g.com/news/889626/...

"The other suspicious item is that Kojima says he has 3 ideas for MGS5. Such comments are meant for pre-planning stages. Unless that is a very old quote then MGS5 may not be the current game on which he is working and will not be here for some 3-4 years whuch would plant it as a next gen title. "

All we do know is that the current title on which he is working is a PS3/Vita game.
crxss  +   1246d ago
It'll happen. Lots of demand for it and we all know Kojima-san caves to people's "requests", happened after 2 and even 3. Anyone remember those death threat letters he received for not going to make another MGS? Put that new FOX engine to good use!
Crazyglues  +   1246d ago
Not only did you read that it's not in development you just read that the main man who has been behind the scenes on every MGS game... Hideo Kojima

Will not be designing it, instead he is going to just see what the team comes up with...

I'm sorry but that doesn't sound good at all... -Not to mention if it's not in development yet, then what year is it going to be coming out - 2014?

Par for the course this gen. Japanese devs seem to love announcing a game 20 years ahead of its potential release date.
Eamon  +   1246d ago
It'd be a bit insulting to the devs at Kojima Productions to say that if Kojima isn't involved at all, the game will turn out bad.

Of course, an MGS game without him may lack the groundbreaking game concepts that the legend known as Hideo Kojima comes up with in each iteration.

But you can't dismiss his studio like that. Kojima has always been the face of his studio and so no other devs have ever had some spotlight. Even Kojima himself says he wants his younger developers to carry on his torch. He just hasn't found anyone worthy of the position yet lol.

It's clear Kojima wants a less intense position in MGS now and wants to concentrate on developing new original titles. It's sad to see him go away but if Kojima can find the right person who is able to conform with his design and creativity, someone who has that unique Kojima flame, then I wouldn't mind seeing Kojima in positions like Executive Producer in future MGS games.

Hasn't he been saying that since after MGS2? He won't be heading the next MGS but he ends up being the main guy anyway. I won't fall for it this time
Blogz4Fanboyz  +   1246d ago
eamon: whilst i agree that it is insulting to the devs, it did not stop the majority on n4g from dising mgs:rising for the same reason... oh and because it is on the 360
Pacman321  +   1246d ago
I knew all that other news about MGS5 being in development was BS. Kojima has already said he is working on some other project, that's enough to get me excited. MGS4 was the perfect ending, i think they should give the series a rest.
Mario007  +   1246d ago
'we'll have to make it' would imply that mgs 5 will happen
Batzi  +   1246d ago
!
I think you should get yourself a rest. I don't want him to quit doing Metal Gear games. There is nothing wrong in doing 2 different games at a time. Why do you want him to just give up on one of the best series in gaming history? I don't understand you people.
LightofDarkness  +   1246d ago
Agreed, not every series needs to continue on ad infinitum. The series has been wrapped up nicely and should be treated like a classic film series or volume of literature; it can be recreated, remastered or re-imagined in the future, but the original story should remain finished and complete.
Darrius Cole  +   1246d ago
I don't want Kojima to stop making Metal Gear Games. However Kojima should do what normally does. There was nothing wrong with the games he makes. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If he would normally do a different project now and wait for inspiration before he does a Metal Gear Game, then he should do that. If he would normally start on the next Metal Gear on a specific date no matter how feels, then he should do that.

"Why do you want him to just give up on one of the best series in gaming history? I don't understand you people. "

Uh, seriously?

Ok. How about so he goes back to work on OTHER games that COULD BE the best series in gaming history? He already struck gold with Zone of the Enders, for example.

You have any idea how AMAZING a new ZoE game would be? Probably not, because you're stuck on MGS, thinking that's all Kojima can bust out.
Pacman321  +   1246d ago
Well said @HardCover.
And @Batzi, i am a huge fan of MGS. MGS3 is my favourite game of all time, and i have completed each MGS game at least 3 times. I completed MGS4 8 times. That's how much i love MGS.
However, i know that Hideo Kojima could make another amazing series, and it would be sad if Hideo only concentrated on MGS when he has the potential to make something different and incredible.

QuodEratDemonstrandm  +   1246d ago
I will agree with that. MGS4 wrapped up the series nicely. I also feel like I should add something that people seem to be forgetting. Solid Snake was quite literally at death's door at the end of that game. Whether there will be more MGS games or not, we've seen the last of Snake.
kane_1371  +   1245d ago
the story didn't end in MGS4, you know that, don't you?

Mgs5===Ps4 launch title

Buying it day one.....
Batzi  +   1246d ago
!
Most probably it will end up being a PS4 game if and only if Sony announces the PS4 at next year's E3/TGS. Even if they don't, MGS games usually take 3 years to be developed so again most probably it might end up being on the next generation consoles.
Trainz  +   1246d ago
This is good news.
Leave the legacy of MGS in its grave.
And if there has to be a new MGS I hope its a complete reboot.
geddesmond  +   1246d ago
lol yep all this hype for a game thats going to be made at some point lol. I'll probably be dead by then. Thats at least 4 years away for sure.
showtimefolks  +   1246d ago
If its not in development right now than i think its a safe thing to assume that mgs 5 will launch in 2014 along with ps4.

It most likely will be on ps3,xbox720 and wii-u but considering 2-3 years of development, 3 most likely i could see this launching with ps4 and who knows maybe even a timed exclusive but that don't matter

Kojima is MGS if he is not making MGS games they will loose something special so if there is going to be mgs 5 kojima needs to produce/direct it
Hyperbomb69  +   1246d ago
@Morganfell
I don't know why you only have one bubble but I completely agree with you.
This new Metal Gear needs to be a real masterpiece and the only way that can happen if its for PS3/Vita.

Hahaha this is exactly what I said it'd be, anyone that actually thought Kojima was going to reveal MGS5 to a magazine and like this is deluded. Kojima: the ultimate troll.
Tomonobu Itagaki  +   1246d ago
Is this Kojima that trolled you or the magazines and sites that yelled out everywhere MGS5 was planned?
Nate-Dog  +   1246d ago
No-one trolled me, but they both trolled almost everyone else who worships Kojima and who believes everything they see and hear.

@Batzi: Indeed, common sense didn't prevail for most people, if OPM were to reveal MGS5 to the world wouldn't that the the front page headline? Sometimes I wonder if people actually think about what they read these days.

Kojima never planned to write the headlines on OPM magazine. I think it was the Editor's choice to place Kojima's face on the mag and LIE about Kojima's involvement in MGS5 a game which doesn't exist!

SDF Repellent  +   1246d ago
I think it will be released for next generation consoles. Rising is not even out yet so the earliest I think we can expect MGS5 is late 2013 or 2014. Hopefully it will be multiplat so more people can enjoy this series.

As much as I want to agree with you, we all know the game would be terribly nerved if it went multiplat. I say wait till next Gen where the Xbox physical media is more up to par compared to BR
The Hillman  +   1246d ago
Seriously?! What the hell, I'm pleased I didn't buy that issue. Unless there's more in the actual magazine that doesn't really give ANY info about MGS 5.

Don't buy it. Bunch of fucking liars! There is nothing worth reading. Metal Gear Solid: Rising will be revealed at the VGAs on december 10th wait for that, that's something Kojima ACTUALLY confirmed on his twitter.
Mario007  +   1246d ago
wow, you really don't get the fact that OPM did not lie, in fact they are the ones telling that MGS 5 is not in development and it was actually gaming sites that hyped up the cover page of OPM?

thehitman  +   1246d ago
I think that if MGS5 releases on ps3 Kojima wont touch it if its PS4 Kojima will want to be all over that.
Convas  +   1246d ago
I guess that's it then. Kojima wants to move on from MGS.
Voxelman  +   1246d ago
he has been sying that since 2 but people just won't let him because they are greedy and selfish.
Undeadwolfy  +   1246d ago
If he did move on, we wouldn't have arguably the greatest game on PS2, MGS3 and arguably the greatest game on PS3, MGS4. At least, imo, I consider them to be that.
Voxelman  +   1246d ago
Oh I should say I include myself in the list of greedy selfish people
younglj01  +   1246d ago
MGS4 have been out for 3 years.I think thats enough time too develop MGS5.I wouldnt be surprise if we see something at E312 and an released date in Nov-Dec12.

Hideo Kojima only have 1 exclusive game on PS3 atm.I dont want too wait until PS4 is released too play MGS5.I want it on my beautiful PS3.I would love too see what he could do with 3 years of learning tha PS3.And since PS3 developers always helping each other I would love too see what Hideo Kojima can do on his second game.

Tha MGS franchise is tha only reason I brought Socom 2.So thanks too Kojima you is my favorite developer of all time.Naughty Dog and Zipper hold tha next 2 tops.

I don't know what the problem is. I never rd into anything about the game being in development, but just that it's planned, and that's good enough for me.
Enigma_2099  +   1246d ago
What he REALLY said...
When asked about the sequel to MGS 4 the series’ creator replied “I think we’ll probably have to make it at some point, but what that will be, we have no idea”. Once again, though, Kojima is downplaying his involvement. “As far as my involvement in the project is concerned, [it] probably won’t be as much as it was with MGS1 – maybe I can do just one stage! For MGS1 I made the maps myself, laid out the enemy routes myself, did everything hands-on – that level I can’t do again.”

But that approach hasn’t worked before as he points out when talking about MGS4. “I intended to take it to a certain point and then hand it off, but that didn’t work, because it’s hard to convey the concept to other people then have them take the reins and carry on and preserve that vision.” His solution then is to not get involved at all. “That’s why it’s easier to have them come up with everything from the start and then take it to the end”.

Heh... I LIKE this solution. You want to make another one THAT bad... fine. Do it yourself.
zerocrossing  +   1246d ago
Well that was kind of bitter sweet, seems like we'll get MGS5 oneday, maybe... anyway I much prefer Kojima get on with making Z.O.E 3 or a new IP =)

I first played the original Metal Gear waay back in 1987 on the N.E.S. and then I played the REAL Metal Gear games on a friends imported MSX system , Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake

Many years after Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake Hideo Kojima released the now classic Metal Gear Solid on Playstation 1.
With this new 3-D tech Kojima was closer to realizing his true vision for Metal Gear thus the "Solid" title was added to represent full 3-D. ( no kids SOLID does not refer to solid snake).

Metal Gear is like no other video game ever created it is complex , has a deap convoluted storyline has great interesting and crazy characters, genre defining gameplay that inspired everything from splinter cell to just about every other 3rd person stealth game ever made and the Metal Gear Solid games feature the best cutscenes ever made in videogames.

I relished in the continuing story of both Solid Snake and other incredibly deep characters like the Boss over the various Metal Gear games over the years.

Metal Gear Solid 4 was the end all be all of the Metal Gear storyline. MGS4 tied up almost every loose end and explained the convoluted Metal Gear storyline to full success.

Hideo Kojima is the most talented game developer / director living today so I would never question his motives as to why he has decided to make another Metal Gear Solid game.

All I ask is this -- please do not bring Solid Snake back AFTER the events of MGS4 unless the game is set BEFORE Metal Gear Solid 4 or Metal Gear Solid 5 turns out to be a remake of the original 8-bit Metal Gear games.

I would be fine with another Metal Gear Solid as long as its a prequel or possibly an all new current gen remake of the old 8-bit Metal Gear games Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2 : Solid Snake.

Im sure that at least 70% or more of todays gamers dont even know that there even was a Metal Gear game waaay back in 1987.

As far as Im concerned as a long time Metal Gear fan Solid Snakes storyline ended with Metal Gear Solid 4.
christoph203  +   1246d ago
he's working on the ogre project by the looks, thats te next official hideo kojima game, mgs5 was is something another team will make too cash in probably
n4gisatroll  +   1246d ago
I for one, am really happy its not official and it was just a mentioning of having to eventually make it. Thankfully, its no time soon, and I hope never. Like I said before, it should be over with, and that doesn't mean there can't be a metal gear game, just shouldn't be a mgs game.
christoph203  +   1246d ago
WOW extremely missleading by OPM, i feel relief though, cause if he was part of the mgs5 project it would be a waste of his talent when he could be working on something more exciting and new
