When Metal Gear Ground Zeroes was announced , it was inevitable: Many would assume this was the secret "Project Ogre" Hideo Kojima and his team have been working on.
After all, it uses the Fox Engine and it's in a more "open world," which is in line with the Project Ogre descriptions. However, Hideo Kojima wants to make it abundantly clear that Ground Zeroes and the currently unannounced mystery title are not one in the same.
In a frustrated Tweet , the MGS guru said:
"While I am happy to know people liked 'MGS Ground Zeroes,' I'm sick & tired of people keep asking me like 'is that project Ogre?' here in Seattle everyday. Project Ogre is what the project that Ogre appears. Ogre does not appear in 'MGS Ground Zeroes' trailer."
That obviously makes it sound like "Ogre" is a person, a character of some kind. And furthermore, this means Kojima and Co. are working on two potentially revolutionary open-world-style games, which should make the fans all the more anticipatory. And in all this, where's Metal Gear Solid 5 ? So… three games in the works? That's ambitious.
