Kojima Says Metal Gear Solid 5 Will Come At Some Point

One of the greatest titles in the video game industry from over the years is Metal Gear Solid, the tactical espionage game dreamed up by Hideo Kojima and presented to us by Konami. The first Metal Gear Solid title appeared on the scene in September of 1998 for the original PlayStation. Since then we’ve seen three straight sequels and even a couple of titles on the PSP system. The MGS series has some of the most loyal fans in the industry, and the story has been intertwined into our very own political history.

With the introduction of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, the series was said, by Kojima, to be at its end. The ending of Metal Gear Solid 4 saw our hero in a much different place then from when he started, and Rising takes place along side the fourth game. It follows Raiden, a sub character who has taken a large role in the series since he was introduced. The one thing that fans found hard to choke down was that the series was actually over. Now, they don’t necessarily have to swallow.

In an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine, Kojima commented on the life of the series, and stated that there was still life in it yet. On the possibility of Metal Gear Solid 5, Kojima said, “I think we’ll probably have to make it at some point. As far as my involvement in the project is concerned, [it] probably won’t be as much as it was with MGS1…” He continued to speak about his involvement in past games, and how he plans to affect any future titles that will be coming into the franchise.

With this being said, fans of the Metal Gear Solid series can once again rejoice as a new title could be coming their way at some point. As a fan myself, I am anxious to see what will happen to the characters and just how much more twisted the story can go. The next entry in the series, Metal Gear Solid: Rising releases sometime next year.
