Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Kojima Reassures Fans that a Proper MGS Sequel Will Come Eventually

Hideo Kojima has effectively confirmed another, proper, Metal Gear Solid sequel by moving to reassure fans that a proper, stealth-based sequel to MGS4 will eventually release.

The comments come as some corners of the community have reacted with disappointment that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is no longer being developed by Kojima Productions and is instead being created as an all-out action game by Vanquish studio Platinum.

"Had same kind of questions @today's conf," Tweeted Kojima. "Our ex-Rising also were aiming at feel good action w/ protagonist, Raiden as a spin-off, not MGS & such concept was shared w/ new Rising by P*. For those of you desire for authentic stealth MGS, I want you to patiently wait for the sequel coming in future."

When exactly a new MGS game would arrive is yet to be revealed, however. But we wouldn't bet on it being soon. Kojima is currently working on Project Ogre, his mystery new game.

Meanwhile, Kojima has reiterated that his studio do not currently have enough staff to make Zone of the Enders 3. Speaking to GamerFitNation, the legendary Japanese developer said, "We want to make that game as well, the only thing is that we don't have staff who are able to work on that game."

If there were enough staff, however, Kojima says that the game would probably be developed in the Fox Engine, the studio's new tech. "We have an environment where we could work on it using the Fox Engine. If we had staff available to work on that game, we would like to."

Apparently, Kojima will reveal more details on the engine, and presumably Project Ogre, at E3 2012.

Yeah and it'll be multi platform which I normally dont care about but MGS's story should remain on the PS and hopefully it will be for PS4 optical storage should be even bigger as I remember in an Interview Kojima did state that even 50GB blu-ray wasnt enough for him.

I'm just glad that Kojima is doing a proper sequel and that this one is really just a spinoff with no real meaning to the MGS saga. Hopefully thats the case anyways.

All this talk about a "proper" MGS4 sequel really makes me worry about the quality of MG Rising: Revengeance. He does not like it enough so gives it away to developers Platinum Games, Kojima is sure to stress it's 'only' a spin-off (and thus cannot be linked to MGS, dropping it and wiping his hands clean of it). Now we hear that a proper MGS4 sequel will be there eventually, implying that MG Rising: Revengeance -- which takes place after MGS4 -- is not up to par.

Kojima: "why is there a bull's eye on my foot?"
"Just try to shoot it."
Kojima: "Cool! I've hit the bull's eye many, many times! Yatta!"

I ought to give MGS4 a chance & try it out, keep hearing wicked things about it. Loved #1 but never felt at home in 2 & 3, completed 2 but couldn't even be bothered going so far w #3.

But a new Zone of Enders game, now that gets my attention :D great games, though a tad on the short & easy side, but still one hell of a fun ride, think I completed the last one 12-13 times LOL

Kojima is not stupid. He know people will complain just like they did about MGS2 (which I hated). He is bracing for that fall out by letting everyone know that they gonna do a "proper MSG" later. This explain why he is doing a new one after making it clear that he wanted MSG4 to be the last.

I got my wishes with a MGS and ZoE HD Collection... make my third wish come true and develop Zone of the Enders 3, already! As much as I love MGS, too much of a good thing, well... you know the rest, Kojima.
