It has been around three and a half years since Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was released, and many were sure that it is Solid Snake’s last adventure as the series’ main character. With the release of prequels like Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, a new game that stars the aged hero is very far from the minds of fans.
In the Christmas issue of the United Kingdom’s Official PlayStation Magazine, Metal Gear Solid project head Hideo Kojima is featured in maybe one of the most intriguing interviews yet. He is said to have opened up on the future of the Metal Gear Solid franchise, including a look at Metal Gear: Rising and details of a fifth Metal Gear Solid game.
Toward the end of Metal Gear Sold 4, Snake is seen to be nearing his death, but with cyborg ninjas and vampires in the series, it seems that any character could live past their time.
“I have three concepts for MGS5 already,” Kojima said. “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.”
If this is true, we may see the fifth Metal Gear Solid game run on a next-gen console.
