Rumor: US Studio To Develop Metal Gear Solid Game

After rumors sprung up about a new Metal Gear game from a GDC listing for ‘the “Next” MGS’ along with an image of Big Boss, most people assumed that MGS5 was in development at Kojima Productions Japan. Now, however, more job listings suggest the upcoming California-based Kojima Productions studio may actually be handling development of the game. - PSLS (Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Hard to tell

My favorite series of all-time. And I'm not talking about this Revengeance crap. I want me some real MGS. I believe a Yay is in order.
Colwyn  +   929d ago
when in rome...

i dont have much faith in this game then. ive been hearing runblings about kojima not having faith in japanese developers anymore and i feel like a us studio making mgs would want to gear the style towards mostly what the us gamers might want.

I understand that MGS is your favorite series
but there is no need to call Revengeance a crap.
Snookies12  +   929d ago
Well, to be fair... The game looks... Kinda bad right now, let's hope it shapes up in any case.
Akiba96  +   929d ago
I have to say, in comparison to other games in the series, revengeance looks pretty dumb. Imo
gaffyh  +   928d ago
Revengeance is really a game for people who aren't MGS fans because the game is the complete opposite to the MGS games in terms of its style and gameplay. That doesn't mean it will be a bad game, it's almost definite that the gameplay will be good, but it does mean that more than likely MGS fans will not be happy with it.
CarlitoBrigante  +   929d ago
Are there really people thinking a US Studio will develop a MGS game??? First: The IP is owned by Konami, 2nd: No US studio can make and tell such an epic story as MGS

If Americans attempted to make a MGS game, it would turn into a CoD game
knifefight  +   929d ago
I love me some classic nationalism and oversimplification.
R4MBO  +   929d ago
Hopefully Kojima's heading this.
jc48573  +   929d ago
this is not the first time Kojima or Konami has done this. Wonder if it's true, but which company? Man, just thinking about MGS 1 remake, which happens to be one of the cheesiest entry I have ever played.

That could be promising, just don't COD it up.
alexcosborn  +   929d ago
Can't wait! HUGE fan of the series.

The original MGS for the PSOne was far and away my favorite.
Ares84HU  +   929d ago
Mine too!! I think it had the best and most original story out of all of them.
alexcosborn  +   929d ago
Agreed, from that point on things got a bit convoluted.

The original MGS has bar-none the best story in any video game ever.
Maldread  +   925d ago
Yeah i agree with you both. MGS1 is the best one in the series. Psycho Mantis. Two endings. Solid Snake vs Liquid. Looking at Meril`s ass to see which guard she is. I mean the game is just so epic and fun.

MGS3 was almoast as good and easily a 10/10 game. But MGS1 is a little bit better in my opinion. Along with FF7 as the two best games i`ve ever tried.
D3stinySm4sher  +   929d ago
Not a big fan of this series in particular but I enjoy its silliness from a distance. Westernizing it a bit (but not TOO much) could potentially get me to give it a second earnest chance.
Majin-vegeta  +   929d ago
*Westernizing it a bit (but not TOO much).*

Umm yea no we don't need more Devs trying to westernize ideas into these games.
MrGunny94  +   929d ago
Kojima or don't even bother....
Der_Kommandant  +   929d ago
or Naughty Dog...
ChiVoLok0  +   929d ago
They have better stuff to make although I also thought about it when I read that comment.
cpayne93  +   929d ago
@ChiVoLok0 better stuff? There isn't a whole lot better that mgs. Even Uncharted doesn't campare to the masterpiece which is the mgs series.
j-blaze  +   929d ago
Agreed!

Kojima and his team "only" or don't even bother!!

@ Der_Kommandant

Naughty Dog??? *facepalm*

seriously, do us a favor and don't mention that name in any Kojima or MGS related stories. thanks

Eww....
SilentNegotiator  +   928d ago
Silicon S**tes (Canadian - any other country they would have gone bankrupt by now, bar MAYBE the usa) did the bulk of Twin Snakes from my understanding, so maybe we're just talking about another remake.

But anyway, US or not, it IS a Kojima studio. So let's not get too hasty.

Godmars290  +   929d ago
So that's Kojima's answer to the stagnation of Japanese game developers as a leader in the industry, is to stop using Japanese game developers?

PirateThom  +   929d ago
I love Kojima... I really do... but this is the wrong way to answer the development issues.

Firstly, Kojima Productions couldn't finish Rising... now, they're getting a US development team to do MGS5?

It's like... they don't want to make games in KojiProJP.
Godmars290  +   929d ago
Doesn't speak well of Kojima either that he's failed to foster a new way of doing things while criticizing them.
dbjj12088  +   929d ago
Well you know... they said they were going to open a California studio.
SilentNegotiator  +   928d ago
Who would have thought that they would actually USE it, though?

/s
Yangus  +   929d ago
WTF?
oh nooo...
Ilovetheps4  +   929d ago
Why would they do this? I'm going to hope that this isn't true. I hope that Kojima makes a proper sequel himself instead of passing it off to another dev.
Knight_Cid  +   929d ago
lets relax until theres details.

It wouldnt be the firts time kojima handed off metal gear to shitty results
luiti1  +   929d ago
but only one studio has the golden voice :)
R1CAN617  +   929d ago
Sounds like this is a result of certain people complaining that MGS games feel like a movie then a game
i say cater to us the Fans who have followed him since Metal Gear 1 if you want more gameplay & action go else were but dont ruin it for us by westernizing it
specialguest  +   929d ago
As long as Kojima's leadership and vision are directly involved, I have no problem with western developers putting their expertise to work. By expertise, I mean the technical side of developing.
gtxgamer2  +   929d ago
Hopefully Ps3 exclusive.
Biohazard8860  +   929d ago
Word but if on xbox hopefully it wont have to be dumb down 4 there shit disc space on xbox 360
Biohazard8860  +   929d ago
disagree trolls lol
Abdou23  +   929d ago
My dream will come true if they turned the series into RPG.
Anyway MGS is my favourite game of all time but if Kojima got tired of it after 5-6 games i would understand that very well.He has ambitious to make something new and i know that Kojima will amaze us once again with any different project.It's better than to continue creating the game with no new ideas, or just keep creating the same game again and again like God Of War & Uncharted. Am not saying those are bad games but let's keep it real here all 3 parts of both games are practically the same.
CalvinKlein  +   929d ago
SNAKE!! SNAKKEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

dun dun dun dundunda, dun dun dun
cstyle  +   929d ago
multiplat confirmed if this is true.
gtxgamer2  +   929d ago
screw that. Microsoft doesnt deserve MGS on their system.
Tzunoy  +   928d ago
It will happen anyway.
Braid  +   929d ago
I swear to god that some of you don't even know how to read or infer conclusions from something you read.

The game will STILL be developed by Kojima Productions, it's just the work will be shared or it will totally be developed in the new KJP studio that is set to be placed in California. They will not hand the game over to another studio or a game company, they're simply employing more people and expanding their staff with new employees. Kojima will probably be writing, directing and managing the production just as he used to do in the past. It's not like they're giving the franchise away to an American company who has nothing to do with MGS. These people will be working for KJP, therefore the game will be released by Kojima Productions with the combined efforts of the old and the new KJP studios.
insertcoin  +   929d ago
*Kojima puts his fingers together* Yes, leave the phone versions to the American devs.
yokokoroma  +   929d ago
As long as Kojima himself oversees it, I don't see a problem. However if that isn't the case, I think he really needs to reconsider. Metal Gear Solid is a flagship game and is held in high regards by many.
SuperK  +   928d ago
Oh great..... TDM comming up.
*sighs*
R1CAN617  +   928d ago
A MGS RPG would be a interesting concept for a game.
