For the last 20 years, the Metal Gear franchise has been one of the innovative leaders of the stealth action genre. Its mix of cinematics, complex plot lines, deep gameplay, and memorable characters have made Snake's adventures legendary. Now this acclaimed series is coming to a close with Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, the upcoming PS3 title from Konami. At the recent MGS4 Boot Camp, IGN managed to get an interview with Hideo Kojima, creator of the series. IGN invited him to candidly share his thoughts as his iconic series concludes.
Why did Kojima feel the need to end his renowned franchise? What are his plans once MGS4 is released? Will we ever see Snake again?
