Kojima might work on Metal Gear Solid 5

During an interview with the latest issue of Famitsu, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has said that his next project will either be Metal Gear Solid 5 or something completely original. He teases the project as “amazing” during the conversation.

“The next project is amazing. The plan is pretty much solidified. Although recently, it has wavered a bit,” Kojima told Famitsu.

“For the next game I make, it’s either Metal Gear Solid 5 or an original game. I only have these two choices.”

Without being asked, Kojima quickly brought up Zone of the Enders 3, saying: “Regarding Anubis and so-forth, sorry — those will be pushed a bit into the future. I’m 47 this year, and I don’t know when something might happen (laughs).”

Kojima boasts that this next project will be “something great” and a “revolution”. He says that they’ll be able to accomplish what they couldn’t do in PSP’s Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

According to Kojima, the engine for his next game is already up and running and tech preps are already being made. He said that he’s gathered his top staff for his new game – but assures that development on Metal Gear Solid: RisingMetal Gear Solid 3DS, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow are still progressing well.

Kojima says that it’ll take maybe two to three years before he’s be able to get out his next title.

“I’ll be slowly making my game on a console. However, even though I say slowly, it can’t take three years. Only Japanese companies are taking time. Overseas, they don’t take so much time for development. Assassin’s Creed saw an announcement at E3 even though one was just released last year. With this in mind, I believe you can’t take more than a little over two years for development.”

The interviewer theorized that Kojima would release his game by 2012 or the end of 2011. To this, Kojima added: “Once I’ve started moving, I move fast.”

He did say that all Kojima Productions titles will be released in the order that they were announced. That would mean Castlevania: Lords of Shadows for this year, Metal Gear Solid: Rising and Metal Gear Solid 3DS most likely for 2011, and his next title most likely for 2012.

Thanks, Andriasang.
