Kojima talks Metal Gear Solid 5
Series creator to spill details about next mainline entry in tactical espionage action franchise later this month.
It is no surprise that more Metal Gear Solid is on the way. Series creator Hideo Kojima has even alluded to the next mainline title in the past, but the fifth game in the series has now been confirmed via a teaser for the next issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine in the UK.
Kojima is set to occupy the cover of the next issue of OPM, and along with that comes word that he will be openly discussing his plans for Metal Gear Solid 5. No other details outside of the game's confirmation were revealed.
Recent rumors have pinned Kojima's next project as powered by the Fox Engine, which was publicly shown for the first time during Konami's Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference this year. Beyond MGS5, the tease reveals that Kojima will also be discussing "Project Ogre," his desire to kill off Solid Snake, and what life after Metal Gear may hold.
Metal Gear Solid 4 came out in 2008, and teases about the next installment in the series have persisted since then. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP landed last year, and in the run up to its release, it was heralded by Kojima himself as a "full-scale sequel." Metal Gear Solid: Rising is also still under development and is expected to resurface at next month's Video Game Awards.
For those who may not be quite up to date with Kojima's signature series, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection--containing Metal Gear Solid 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Peace Walker--hit shelves last week. For more on the remastered collection, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
