Hideo Kojima "Thinking" About Metal Gear Solid 5

kojima1.jpg

Hideo Kojima, acclaimed director of the Metal Gear Solid series, seems to have a hard time making up his mind. He’s stated numerous times that Metal Gear Solid 4 will be his last entry in the series and even mentioned that he might turn his creative eye to Zone of Enders once more. But now he seems to be saying that he’s already making plans for Metal Gear Solid 5, even though MGS4 isn’t even out the door quite yet. In an interview with Famitsu, Kojima said:

I gotta start thinking about MGS5…that would be something that Kojima Productions would have to make, I think.

Wait, what? Didn’t he pull this with MGS3 too? Dang it, Kojima, stop toying with our emotions.

As I’ve been plowing my way through the Metal Gear games to get ready for MGS4 recently, I’m happy to think that there’s even more in store from Kojima specifically, but who knows if I’ll be seeing that once I make it through Snake Eater, 4, and Portable Ops.

I think this is awesome! I’ve never played any of the MGS games. Heck, I’ve never owned a PS2. It’s great that a great game maker is still interested in his craft. I know many times I don’t feel like working on my art or music, but after forcing myself to get things done I become intersted in it again. Same with Kojima. He knows that working on these games takes a lot of time, patience, skill and emotion. But, once you’re at the end of your project, your mind begins to wonder…. “How would I make this better if I had another crack at it?” He just wants to blow our minds and complete his mission… that is, to be the greatest game developer of all time!
[disclaimer, I'm not saying that he is, but why not strive towards that goal?]

i am a HUGE fan of mgs an if kojima keeps up his good work i think mgs could easily become the biggest gaming franchise ever. even bigger than mario or tomb raider!!

I just finished beating Metal Gear Solid 4. The cinematic cutscenes drove me insane. Kojima has to make more Metal Gear Solid games, It just would not be right if he left it alone.

He can make a MGS 5, but SNAKE’s story ENDS.

I don’t want to see Otacon make a cure to prolong his life or
destroy the mutated fox die. More, i don’t want to see any cameos.

If he wants to make a sequel, go ahead..but i won’t be buying it.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOO JUST CLOCKED MGS4 WOOOOOO one hell of a epilogue tho, over an hour

Would be interesting, perhaps the main character could be Little John?

I can imagine the teaser poster, ‘MGS’ where the ‘S’ is shaped to look like ’5′

I think he should go back to ZoE..it was an incredible game and it’s sad to see it collect dust.

On June 25, 2008 at 10:21 am

im feelin a Big Boss adventure in 5… either that or Raiden’s adventures in between 2 and 4 but Big Boss in next-gen… make it happen Kojima

Ryan

On June 25, 2008 at 8:51 pm

MGS4 = the best game on ps3 by miles! Big boss is a legend we want to know more about the hero who started it all!

fraser

On June 27, 2008 at 6:04 am

nah screw big boss

gotta be a prequel or sequel involving solid snake

the man makes the metal gear solid series what it is

MAYBE A GAME ON WHEN HE WAS GOING ROUND DESTROYING METAL GEARS BETWEEN MGS1 AND MGS2
you know before the tanker incident

Gilbert

On June 30, 2008 at 9:50 pm

I love metal gear solid and i already beat 4. that game was so so bad as. I realy hope that kojima makes a 5.the graphics were bad ass and i just love it

beee

On July 1, 2008 at 3:50 am

so i beat 4 and still confused so i’m playing them over right after eac other in order. They left tons of room for another raiden game. i’m betting thats the way they go. between 2 and 4

ocelot

On July 3, 2008 at 3:55 pm

i definately think u should make a fith one if u think about it u made 2 on gba/mobile 1 on ps1/game cube 2 on ps2 1 on ps3….that just about says it all one more and y end it on the number 4? call me weird but apart from indiana jones wat story ends with a forth?

ocelot

ocelot

On July 3, 2008 at 3:57 pm

maybe it should be another about big boss v solid snake and somehow solidus or liquid or even ocelot comes back?…can meryl die plz if she havent already

lovemgs

On July 7, 2008 at 5:38 pm

MGS5 will be a prequel most likely. There is a load of unanswered questions and unknown events in the time between 1 and 2, and 2 and 4. Plus there is more of Big Boss to elaborate on, as well as we don’t know what Raiden did between 2 and 4 either. MGS5 FTW!

solidus snake

On July 9, 2008 at 9:18 am

fingers crossed kojima is a jenious :!: :!: …i tink it shuld be or about THE BOSS or bout BIG BOSS or RAIDEN 9between 2 nd 4)

MetalGearSolid

On July 10, 2008 at 6:55 pm

Listen. if Hideo Kojima he really wanted to make MGS4 the last one, then snake would have comitted suicide at the end like we all thought he did, but he didnt. Metal gear solid games arn’t just games, they are legendary masterpieces which i know because ive completed them all. Metal Gear Solid has a lot more to offer than just 4 games if you ask me. No other game has stepped up to the mark of entertainment or addiction level. Not only should there be a Metal Gear Solid 5 but there should be 8 of them atleast.

On July 12, 2008 at 5:57 pm

they should make one
were every character dies
and theres a world war 3
and theres a lot of metal gear rays
fighting in the war

On July 18, 2008 at 3:38 pm

Kojima should consider to remake MGS1 MGS2 and MGS3 with the playstation 3 so all the graphic will look just as great as MGS4 im sure MGS fans would want to experience all the previous great MGS games once more with better graphic.

commmmen we want to know what happened ti riden

Kliss

On July 24, 2008 at 10:19 pm

MGS5 have to be a prequel. I agree that the story about snake is over. At least a prequel about solid snake. Plus I think that KOjima should direct MGS5 because the sucess of this serie is because of him. I would love to see Big Boss evolution or Zanzibar war with grey fox. MGS5 have to be a prequel because if it’s snake again it’s gonna ruin the serie. I’m sure that Hideo Kojima have other idea to makes prequel !! It’s not over yettt!!! :mrgreen:

ben lloyd

On July 26, 2008 at 2:07 am

i would love metal gear solid 5 ive got them all i think you a a real genius with number 4 and who know whats going to happen :lol:

ben lloyd

On July 26, 2008 at 2:10 am

please Hideo Kojima make another one :wink:

Michael

On July 26, 2008 at 11:48 pm

If kojima makes MGS5 and it costed $1,000,000 i WOULD buy it :mrgreen: . It will be worth it. If he starts making Zone of enders 3, then I will die :sad: .

TheEnd(jaycob)

On July 27, 2008 at 3:27 am

On August 1, 2008 at 3:41 pm

i love the mgs games and liked mgs 3 but solid snake is higher up the list of fav characters than big boss

Juan Carlos (Plitzkin)

On August 3, 2008 at 10:52 pm

Hell yeah, let us get it on with MGS5, I think we could bring up Old Snake one more ride, at least with Raiden, but continue these saga which has been a bliss for me this last 10 years.

Bread

On August 7, 2008 at 5:49 pm

ive finsihed metal gear solid 1,2 and 4 and im gonna do 3

Jayson

On August 7, 2008 at 7:13 pm

what about metal gear or metal gear 2: solid snake

you know when he goes to zanzibar land to fight big boss?? i think…

what about that for MGS5???

OctoCamo

On August 21, 2008 at 12:17 pm

I realy hope he makes a MGS5. They should bring back snake and have a big war of metal gears. Meryle and her squad would be there and raidan some how. It would be great even if he doesnt make it that way i still think he should make a MGS5 because its the best game ever and the story should keep going. Just make sure snake is there lol.

Taylor

On August 21, 2008 at 12:39 pm

Yea i hope there is another one, i am saving up money for a PS3 and praying that the 360 version comes out soon.. Iv heard that they are making a new MGS but Snake is done for..they will probably have another game with Big Boss staring in it in his younger years…it would be could to play through big boss’s point of view of zandabar land or outer heaven, or playing as ocolot would be cool

On August 25, 2008 at 3:38 pm

MGS is not just a game. I say this always. And of course I’d love to see MGS5! Heh even though it’d be called different, even though Snake wouldn’t be the main character or probably already dead. C’mon Mr.Kojima, I know you won’t leave your precious child alone like this!

MGSFan

On August 28, 2008 at 6:22 pm

:cry: if he made MGS5. lots of people probably couldn’t play it. allot of people don’t have PS3 cause were poor or other reasons. he should remake all of the games into 1 using 4′s graphics. MGS4 is using all of the PS3′s Graphics.

METAL GEAR SOLID FOREVA

BIG BOSS: ” THIS IS GOOD ISN’T IT????”

crazy

On September 19, 2008 at 9:53 pm

i think that metal gear solid 5 should be a prequel like a re-make of the metal gear and metal gear 2 solid snake. or maybe more of big boss.

crazy

On September 19, 2008 at 9:54 pm

would be kick as$ :mrgreen:

-Unforgivem-

in MGS4 snake didn’t DIE……………………

Illidan-Stormrage

On September 24, 2008 at 3:19 am

maybe kojima should remake MGS1 b’coz i wanna see MGS1 in a better graphic n maybe in a new gamestyle PLEASE REMAKE IT!!!

Hangmen

On September 24, 2008 at 5:29 am

MGS5? Probably a working title, cuz’ I’m sure Solid Snake is way too old and sick for another mission, unless it’s somekinda prequel. Then again, Kojima isn’t a stranger to pulling a complex, ridiculous but interesting plot twist.

In any case, it’s nice to see another MGS game in the making, though you may likely be playing a different Snake (another clone? A different soldier?).

jungelboy

On September 24, 2008 at 7:13 am

I think it would be cool making a MGS5 based on some more Rambo type missions where you go aound in jungles and swim in rivers and stuff like that.

Then go back to normal camo like different suits you wear for surroundings. And maybe through some wild animals in here and there not just for food but predators that you can use tatically to your advantage or you could become the prey yourself if you screw up.

Also leave out that funny nitendo alarm sound when enemy sees you and the question mark? That would make the game feel more real.

yea todaly make the old NES MGS only PS3 graphiques maybe 360 or maybe big boss and eva had a boy and hes like the new snake. but yea i would love to see snake and gray fox again only on PS3 and how they became like this.

snake eater

On November 21, 2008 at 2:36 pm

if there is a MGS5 there should be a full scale nuclear war with rays, rexes, and maby a new gear, some gecko, or even a new monster thing. that would be cool.

mgsfan!!!

On May 26, 2009 at 7:56 pm

yeah. they are remaking the original metal gear. it will be announced at e3. they have a teaser of it. with the letters p 3 s and a pop up showing big boss as a younger version with a foxhound beret on. :P

DJ

On July 3, 2009 at 7:38 pm

i think metal gear solid 5 should be in zanzabar where snake first meet franky jager, and where he soposably killed big boss
