Kojima Sneaks In Three Ideas for MGS5


Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, says he already has three ideas for Metal Gear Solid 5.

“I have three concepts for MGS5 already. What would be ideal for me with MGS5, though, is that we don’t do those. If the team picks one of those concepts, I have to get involved again, which I don’t want to do.”

He goes on to say this:

“There are already so many good ideas from the staff, so if we select one of those, that would be really good. At that point I could really rely on them and take the step back to be the producer, which is the ideal situation, I think.”

Kojima will be working on Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker as game designer, writer, producer, and director. While for Metal Gear Solid: Rising, he’ll be taking a much smaller role as producer only. Although this seems to be the end of Hideo Kojima working on the Metal Gear franchise, he still continues to work on new ideas.

“Well, I want to create something new, and it’s difficult to explain since no one’s seen it before. I don’t know if it would sell very well. I’ve been warming this up for a long time, and I keep thinking that I’ll try this idea. But ideas always change, so I really don’t know what the final outcome will be.”
