Kojima to Serve as Producer on ZOE 3 Despite Project Ogre Commitments

While Hideo Kojima currently has his hands full with “Project Ogre,” he has vowed to maintain the role of producer on the recently announced Zone of the Enders followup.

Kojima was the producer on both of the prior Zone of the Enders titles, so it’s easy to understand why it is so important to fans that he assume the same role for this third entry. His development studio, Kojima Productions will be responsible for developing the game, while he will work to guide the overall direction of the process.

While the general feel of the game world will remain true to the classic Zone of the Enders style, the overarching visual design will likely be the game’s most noticeable departure, as Kojima and the team aim for a more “global, high-end Z.O.E. style.” For a better idea of what this might mean, be sure to take a look at some of the capabilities of the studio’s photo-realistic Fox Engine.
