"Hideo Kojima plans to move on from Metal Gear Solid eventually."
Hmmm I think I've heard this before. For the last 15 years actually. ZOE 3 maybe?
Yea, since MGS2.
Forever is a very long time and the human mortality rate is 100%
Came here just to say this, you beat me to it lol. He's literally been saying this same thing with each new game since MGS2.
He'll stop when the money dries up
Longer actually, he made the original Metal Gear without intention of making another.. And here we are over 20 years later.
that's what he thinks. >_>
hazelamy Lmao!! My thoughts exactly.
The only thing I want from him after MGSV is a remake of Metal Gear 1+2. Maybe a good remake of MGS1(and not TTS), but i wouldn't mind if that doesn't get remade either.
That's exactly what I've been going for. It would be great if The Phantom Pain led right into those remakes.
everybody gets franchise fatigue. I want to see what he has up his sleeve
Yeah, it's just untill Konami say the franchise is no longer profitable... I realy wish Kojima was allowed to work on other projects, he's way to tallented to only be making MGS games.
Lol liar. Move on to ZoE3 please. My heart is still broken that you've but that game on the 'almost 100% cancelled' back burner. :(
What? He is not immortal?
Of course not. He's bound to die someday.
He'll make them from the afterlife...
Dont give him ideas Oh crap there you go MGS:AFTERLIFE
MGS11: Ghosts of the Philosophers Tactical Paranormal Action
"I will stop with Metal Gear" -Kojima, 2004. "Soon I'll stop with Metal Gear" -Kojima, 2006. "The Next Metal Gear will be the latest I'll make"-Kojima, 2007. "I will not make Metal Gear Forever" -Kojima, 2013.
And on 2017 "I will not make MGS ever again" - Kojima On 2018 (PS5 and Xbox 2) *Metal Gear Solid 6 revealed*
Don't forget: "I'll be stepping down after this one [MGS2]" -Kojima, 2000.
He's already trying to force his way out by having mediocre companies make spinoffs of his games using the worst characters in the franchise. Not to mention he's trying to ruin the franchise himself just to get out of it that's why you see all these casual features in MGS5. He didn't want Hayter voicing Snake because Kojima wants to ruin everything since he feels like he just can't retire on a good note. His whole plan is to make people hate the Metal Gear franchise by running it into the ground since they wouldn't just let him stop making the games.
You talking about ruined franchises with that name and icon is hilarious!
Have to agree sadly... MGS5 looks nothing like MGS4 in the worst ways possible. Open world was a good idea, but the super fast running, slow down time when you're discovered, the ridiculous melee attacks, and the over the top explosions and action are all killing the MGS name imo. Not to mention the characters which just strike me as plain stupid for the most part...and the plot holes (a weapon greater than metal gear before metal gear = wtf?).
Then Konami walked in and said "fine can we send it to someone else for milk" then Kojima lost his enthusiasm and walked back into the chamber to protect his game.
Just until the moment before the world ends.
The world has already ended in 2012 like DUH
*slaps forehead* Man, how could I have forgotten?! I'm such a fool...
I´d like to see him team up with Nomura eventually, since they are good friends and often have dinner together to discuss their individul projects. I guess with FFXV and KH3 coming in the next years, that´ll take a while XD
lol that's what he's been saying FOR-EV-ER
As old as it is hearing that Kojima will no longer make MGS games, It's equally as old seeing such a small niche continuously expecting ZOE 3. At best i could see it being successful on an indie level and at a reduced price but there's not a market for that series. Look at the sales. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
He is right, he will be making a new Metal Gear game called Metal Gear Liquid.
Everyone dies some day. Unless he's a highlander.
Nope he'll prolly die before that
ha ha, it wont happen.
did he ask his corporate masters for permission first.
no one lives forever....
Yes he will.
he needs to make freaking game and not these cg movies..
Lol heard that before when he made mgs4, 3 etc. He's too invested in the series, each game is his "last". Just keep making them, they're great, but space it out a bit with some other games in between.
Then be done with it already! after mgs5 that is.
MGS4 was to be his his last, then fans sent death threats... He's been wanting to leave this franchise alone for a long time! I hope he does, he's too talented to have it spent solely on MGS!
Suuuurrrreeeeeeeeeeeee Kojima ..... sure
Your ZOE 3 is already long overdue, Kojima
