While the next Metal Gear Solid hasn’t officially been announced, it hasn’t stopped the series creator Hideo Kojima from talking about the next game.
Speaking to French gaming magazine IG in an interview, Kojima says that the next game will be using his companies new Fox Engine, and will be more of an infiltration game then action, with characters that the player can interact with, much like what was seen in Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
There are a couple big questions not answered in the interview, like how far along production on the next Metal Gear Solid game is, and whether or not Kojima is in charge of production. Also, what of Solid Snake? “We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of Patriots,” says Kojima, while that isn’t really a straight forward answer, it seems, fingers crossed, that Solid Snake will be making an appearance in MGS5.
As of now it is suspected that Metal Gear Solid 5 will be designed for the next generation of consoles and high end PC’s, as in February this year Konami began hiring for work on Project Ogre, a title being developed for the next generation which many believe may be the codename for MGS5.
