I would be surprised, but that’s what Hideo Kojima would want me to act. MGS 2 supposed to be the last game? Nope, gotta make room for MGS 3 (don’t get me wrong, it’s my favorite MGS game). Then MGS 4 came along. “But wait, MGS 3 was supposed to be the last game!” Kojima: “Nope, but don’t worry, this is the last one, PROMISE.”
4 years later, Kojima provides proof that he has a bad memory. Or Konami needs some money, and Kojima is hooking a brotha up.
Ok, enough lame comedy.
In an interview with French Gaming Magazine “IG”. Kojima has stated the following
“…there will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine”.
“About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you ‘a favour’ like in the last Metal Gear Solid.”
It seems that Kojima may throw in some aspects of another certain game with stealth elements.
“I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see. And if I say more, the female ninja public relations officer, who is behind the door, I will be carved up into pieces. So it’s better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about Metal Gear Solid 5.”
He goes on to confirmed that Solid Snake will get out of retirement once again to return for this game (that is if this game isn’t a prequel).
“Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid. This is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots.”
