It's happening, it's not happening, why is it happening and when will it just end? These are all questions that have been flying around for months around the possibility of Metal Gear Solid 5, but the man himself, Hideo Kojima has confirmed some details to French games magazine IG.
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 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, I will be carved up into pieces." - Hideo Kojima, Kojima Productions
The game is reported to be running on a brand new version of the Fox Engine, Kojima's own in-house engine built for the PS3.
He also cleared up any confusion about the gramatically incorrect Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, while confirming that Solid Snake will effectively be in the next MGS game.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeancenever claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid," he said. "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."
