Hideo Kojima appears to be working on several projects at once. It's widely assumed that one of them is the anticipated Metal Gear Solid 5 .
But when might it arrive? Well, depending on how you interpret the following quotes, you could be encouraged or disappointed…because it almost sounds possible to see MGS5 on store shelves towards the latter half of next year.
During a Silent Haven interview , Silent Hill 4 voice and motion-capture actor Eric Bossic said he's working with Kojima on a "future Metal Gear game" but in fact, the game is "a long way off." Said Bossic:
"I am working on a future Metal Gear, not to be released until next year summer at the earliest, if not later then that. I'm doing motion capture only. I can 100% say my voice will not be involved in this. I don't even know what the title is, they are all very secretive and sometimes even the scenes I act out I don't even know the full story, because they want to keep it secret.
I suppose it is fine to mention I am working on it, everybody knows Kojima is making something now, and I posted the photo on my page here with him. The only thing is that I can't ever answer any questions about it or talk about, not for sometime."
Yes, Kojima and Co. have been awfully quiet about any and all new projects, but it's nice to hear that work is being done. We just wonder what might happen if MGS5 doesn't launch next year…would it then arrive for the next generation? How's about that for a PS4 launch title?
