it could be a title like the last of us that was released towards the end of last gen. Or it could be a launch title for ps5(or could be both like TLOU)

kojima is also most likely getting help from sony japan since he said collaboration

also he is a big coup for sony but sony is also a big coup for kojima. he finally gets a publisher who will proveeide

time for development
freedom as in what game to develop
man power if need from sony japan
and any thing else

david cage was gonna do one game with sony and now he is on his 3rd, don't be surprised if kojima sticks with playstation for a while

almost anyone who has worked with sony as a publisher has nothing but praises.

ND pretty much said it that we have complete freedom on what to do next under sony as publisher

I was thinking the same thing.

No way would he already be working on a PS5 title, its way too early for that. On the Q&A they specifically mentioned the PS4 :)

If the PS4 has a five year lifecycle that would mean that after three years of development on this game we'd see the PS5 hitting store shelves. When you take a look at how long Kojima takes to make his games and then take into account the extra effort required to make games for current gen hardware, his game could very well be pushed to the next console generation instead.

Of course, this is merely going on guesswork as to how long this console generation will last, but the PS3 launched in 2006 and the PS4 launched in 2013, which is a gap of 7 years and Sony themselves said that this console generation will not be as long as the last one, since they feel that it went on for too long. So we can theorize that this console gen will last either 5 or 6 years, which would mean we'll be seeing the PS5 in 2018 or 2019. Considering we're about to start 2016, it doesn't give Kojima very long to make and release his new game on current gen hardware.

In fact, I think most developers will only manage to get one big game out during this console generation, unless it ends up being longer than planned. Take Naughty Dog for example, they'll be releasing their first PS4 game in 2016, which is 3 years into the PS4 lifecycle, and if it takes them another 3 years to make their next game it will be right at the end of the PS4's lifecycle.

I am not saying conformed they are working on a ps5 title. All I was trying to say logically it makes sense

Mgs 5 took 5 years development
80 plus million

Both Sony and Ms have said that this Gen Will not be as long as last Gen

So let's say Kojima is gonna develop a new game which will require time for pre production and R&D, it could take next 6 plus months for R&D. So another 3.5 and 4 for development is pretty normal for a new ip

We could see the fame launch both on ps4 and than ps5.

Either way can't wait

I find it rather amusing that people think Kokima takes 5-6 years to make every game he's involved in. MGS is the only series where that's the case, and most of the time on the last 2 were more because of the Fox Engine development than the game taking an inordinate amount of time.

I think some people don't realize that Kojima was involved with 3 games other than MGSV in the time he was making MGSV, 4 if he did anything directly with ZOE HD. 2 of which came to release, along with MGS, and another which only got a demo.

Any of the big 3 would have providing him with the same support. Sony just got him first.

DivineAssault 2103d ago

He said he expects the exclusive to become a franchise.. I have no doubts about it happening too
