Kojima Assures Gamers that Another ZOE is Planned

September 19, 2011Written by Alex Osborn

The beloved Japanese game developer Hideo Kojima is known for a handful of franchises, the two most notable being Metal Gear Solid and Zone of the Enders. While the former is a far more popular and recognized series, the latter has a dedicated hardcore following. It is clear that Mr. Kojima has taken note of his fans’ loyalty, as he recently announced at TGS that a third installment in the Zone of the Enders franchise is not out of the question.

During a stage show for the series at the Tokyo Game Show, Kojima assured ZOE loyalists that he has heard their cries for a new game and plans to deliver a completely new entry in the series. I wouldn’t hold my breath though, considering the fact that Metal Gear: Rising, a game that was announced a couple of years ago, still has to be finished.

Kojima operates under his own set of rules, and you can be sure that Zone of the Enders 3 won’t be rushed out the door so that Kojima Productions can make a quick buck. There’s no doubt that when the game does launch, it will be a worthy entry in the series, even if we have to wait five more years.
