The famous Metal Gear Solid creator, Hideo Kojima is believed to have told a French games magazine IG [as cited by CVG] that Solid Snake may return in the next game in the series.
“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.
“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.”
There were questions over the legitimacy of the quote yesterday, but a spokesperson for IG has confirmed to CVG that the interview and quotes are legitimate.
CVG quoted Kojima further:
“There will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine”.
“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.”
