There’s been a lot of chatter about Hideo Kojima and the future of Metal Gear. Kojima will be at PAX 2012 hosting a panel about the past, present and future of Metal Gear. Hopefully some news about Metal Gear Solid 5 will be mentioned. Although many fans are excited about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, some fans are dissappointed by the fact that is not part of the core “Solid” series and furthermore by the fact that it is being developed by Platinum Games (albeit with guidance from Kojima Productions). Kojima will speak at PAX on Saturday, September 1st at 1:00 p.m. at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle.
A beacon of hope shines through as an interview with Eric Bossic, a motion capture actor, surfaces. He speaks about a secret upcoming Metal Gear game which is not Rising. Presumably Metal Gear Solid 5, although there has been no official confirmation which game he is speaking of…
This basically tells us there will be a new MGS, which we all expected anyway. It also could mean that Metal Gear Solid 5’s release date will be sometime in 2013… but we all know how that goes.
In related news, Konami and Kojima Productions also updated Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots to include PlayStation Trophies in conjunction with the series’ 25th anniversary.
