    Female Solid Snake for Metal Gear Solid 5?

    We’ve been talking about Metal Gear Solid 5 for years now, mostly hearing series creator Hideo Kojima saying he won’t make another sequel (like he says every time). Luckily for us, Kojima-san has now announced he’s begun production on Metal Gear Solid 5!

    According to the July 2012 issue of French IG Magazine, Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima has confirmed development on Metal Gear Solid 5. To quote Hideo Kojima:

  • “There will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine*. But what we’ve shown was not gameplay or anything like that. It was just a demo that we had developed internally and released because the lighting and interactions with the environment had fooled everyone.

    About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things: 1) There will be much infiltration as well as espionage, and 2) convincing people to give you “a favor” like in the last Metal Gear Solid. 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 – will carve me up into pieces. So it’s better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about Metal Gear Solid 5.

    Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid game. It’s not a game about our beloved Solid Snake, instead it’s a spin-off that tries something different. We are not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

    *FOX Engine will be shown off by Hideo Kojima on August 30th, 2012. Let’s hope Metal Gear Solid 5 will be its showcase game!

    In December 2011 a Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance documentary featuring Hideo Kojima revealed what his main ideas behind Metal Gear Solid 5 are. To quote:

    “Metal Gear Solid 4 wrapped up in 2008, and the development team took post-project time off right after that. But, of course, we were in a situation where we had to start planning for Metal Gear Solid 5. So I started coming up with several ideas.

    I had several ideas for a game featuring Big Boss and the Cobra Unit during the invasion of Normandy [set during World War II]. I then handed these plans over to the team so they could take over and make the game.

    I presented my ideas to the team during the summer of 2008. However, simply dropping Metal Gear Solid 5 on the younger staff members was a bit heavy and there was resistance to doing it without my involvement.”

    You can watch the full half-hour interview with Mr. Kojima here:

    Having Big Boss involved does explain this Metal Gear Solid 5 teaser image from earlier this year. I’m very curious how the story will pan out.
