What Next for Hideo Kojima?

Stu at Sushimonster85 writes 'Unless you have been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, it has been impossible to ignore the release of Metal Gear Solid V. Hailed by many as one of the best games of recent years, and undoubtedly featuring the best pure gameplay found in the Metal Gear Solid series, it seems a fitting swan song for the man many consider to be gaming’s first/only ‘Auteur’. Indeed, only if you have been living under that same rock for six months now, the ugly (and very public) fallout between Metal Gear Solid’s creator Hideo Kojima, and Konami has gone hand in hand with final months of development, as well as the games release.

So what next for the man who has had free run over his own multi-million dollar franchise? Aside from a long holiday, and tweeting about his latest Blu-ray purchases.'

Kojima will join Naughty Dog and will direct The Last of Us 2 with Neil Druckmann and Bruce Straley. And then will join Team ICO and direct The Last Guardian 2 and Shadow of the Colossus Remake.

Then Sony buys Kojima Productions and then they make Plastic Gear Liquid

i could see nintendo trying to get him. i think it would be a great move too. microsoft will try hard but he won't work for them, he doesn't want his fanbase to turn on him and they would. that's how sad the gaming community is, they see it as a disgrace even though they should only concern themselves with how good the games are.

i myself would like to see him start up his own studio. that way he has nobody but himself to blame for the over production that will likely sink him financially. aside from mgs he hasn't had much success and i don't think he's the type that likes to be told what to do.

That would be way to many egos involved for that project to happen. Kojima needs to be the sole vision in development, that's what makes his games work...

You do know that Kojima didn't come up with Grey Fox or any of the things that made MGS 1 and 3 good?

I hope he makes another mech game in the vein of ZOE. Throw in some anime cutscenes and all, or use that rather amazing style from Guilty Gear Xrd to render them properly.

That game has a rather large cult following, he could easily crowd fund that, ace it, and use that as a platform to join a larger publisher and make more AAA games.

I'm just glad that he's confirmed he'll make games till the end of time. Can't wait to see what Kojima cooks up

Sony signing Hideo Kojima and annouce it at TGS. That would brake the web, lol. They should but i think its impossible.

I hope Hideo makes a space adventure, something in the spirit of classic buck Rogers / Flash Gordon
Or Silent MoleHills
