Yeah, we know the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is coming. But damnit, what's next for Hideo Kojima?

The rumors continue to swirl concerning the master's new project and now, it appears he's back to work on it…whatever it might be. He refuses to give any confirmed details but perhaps you can gather something from his latest update :

"Back to work on a project after a while. Surprisingly, I forgot the details. Asked for the old notes to check and adjust the consistency again. Cannot work on the side, so decided to concentrate on another day."

Sounds about right. If he can't focus all his efforts, he won't give in to "half-assery;" he'll just stop and try another day. But the big question remains: what is this project? Is it a new MGS? It's not Rising and the long-time fans are definitely hoping for Zone of the Enders 3 . Then again, we could always use an official MGS5 (and not another portable entry). So what do you want to see from Kojima?

Don't get me wrong, I would love a new MGS on consoles but its time for a new IP.

An RPG of any kind would be epic.

I'd put money on a new Zone of the Enders game, seeing that his announcement of a Zone of the Enders HD Collection just dropped from the sky. Whatever it is, Kojima will no doubt blow us away.

I think it's a whole new IP, something creative and not as safe as MGS. Whatever it is I can't wait to find out. And I sympathize, I hate going back to projects after a hiatus and being like "where the hell was I?" on like a hundred details.

And what do I have to do to be called "the master"?

I think he is definitely working on something new, peace walker was known as MGS5 in development, and i think kojima still considers it to be MGS5. I hope some day though he finds the time to remake Metal Gear & Metal Gear 2 Solid Snake.

Then again, he said something about "checking consistency" so it could be another MGS. I hope its a new ip though, i'm tired of hearing people say he is a one trick pony.

5. Considering what he accomplished so early in the PS3s life I can only imagine what he could do now. But he is probably saving that for PS4.

Still waiting for MGS4 Trophy support. Not holding my breath.

Such a shame that never happened, it might've made me try harder to keep playing MGS4.

So many people ask for it. I'd definitely replay it that happened. I never hear Kojima outright refuse to do it. Or did I miss something?

when kojima was asked about trophies he asked which do you think gamers prefer…him going back and putting trophies in mgs4 or working on new games. that sounds like a no to me. surely he could have handed that off to a subordinate, and simply have approved it.
trophies would have been great and added some replay value to an already short game.

i will say whatever game he makes i will be there day 1. he is the reason i first got into the playsation brand in the first place. i saw mgs and just decided i had to have that game. went out and bought my first console and have been loyal to sony since. i am looking forward to mgs hd collection a lot since i have not had the chance to play peacwalker yet.

I did some checking around, he said and i quote: "I wanted to make a 'Complete Version' with trophy support and 3D. But if I did that I wouldn't be able to work on a new game. I wonder if someone else would make it for me." We may see a directors cut eventually, something in the same vein as MGS1 intergal, MGS2 substance, and MGS3 subsistance. Maybe he will even update the MGS4 engine an extend the gameplay. (I dream really big don't i?)

New IP, please. As much as I'd love a new Metal Gear, the series felt pretty wrapped up to me after 4. Then again, I'd gladly take a current gen (let's face it, next gen at this point is the PS4) remake of the original Metal Gear (1987.)

I see something new coming.
I'm not sure what the chances are of it being the MGS(1) remake. I'm thinking pretty low but Ive heard multiple times that it is/could be coming. I hope it comes at one point. Same with the MG and MG2:Solid snake I'm wanting.

I really want a true MGS5, Now way PW will get away with that. But I don't think that this project will be that. Unless he knows something we don't(PS4 coming 2013) I want to see MGS5 come as a PS4 launch title. It will get many people to make the move in the next gen.

What ever it is, I'm interested. The only games I have played of his have been MGS-Greatest franchise EVER but with it being such the masterpiece and his name on my favorite games to date. sign me up!!!

I would really love to have a ZoE3. Just to see what it would look like on the PS3 makes my mouth water…but I am kind of leaning towards a new IP. That thought just boggles my mind.

He strikes me as the kinda guy who, if he's really passionate about the series he would definately take it into several installments. Zoe doesn't seem to be to high on his to do list. His focus lately has been solely mgs. Zoe would be possible, but I'm willing to bet he's working something new. May be time for him to turn over a new leaf?

Heh… That feeling of going back to an old project.

Anyway, it's great to see that he's doing something. I'm thinking that it'll be either ZoE 3, Castlevania:LoS sequel or something entirely new. I'm cool with any of the three, which reminds me to keep an eye out for C:LoS going cheap next time I'm in the city.

i don't hink you will be dissapionted with castlevannia:los. absolutely beautiful game with a lot of depth, and a surprising amount of length. a great value.

plus it has one of best endings i have seen in a game. a real holy sh!t ending, but in a good way. i can't wait for the next game which i believe has already been confirmed.

Slow news day Ben? The 'update' mentioned is a 6-day-old Tweet from Kojima-san…

Anyhow, though I would love it to be a new ZOE title, it probably isn't- I'm sure they'll see how the HD collection sells before committing to THAT…

Maybe it come out at the Tokyo Game show. An unveiling of Kojima's next big project whatever it is coupled with PS vita's specs and maybe one more sony exclusive of some sort would really solidify a PS dominance at the Tokyo game show.

Assuming the mystery project is exclusive.

Whatever it is I know it'll be great, heck amazing for that matter, and I don't think he'll place it on the 360 i don't think if i remember right he wasn't too happy with MG going on there he's always been with Sony.

I will gladly accept another metal gear, as long as its NOT portable. If it has online i hope it runs on dedicated servers. It was a lagswitchers/glitchers haven. Hardcore mgo boys you know what im talkin about. GP crap ruined the mgo experience. I wouldn't also mind if somehow bigboss is resurrected in mgs new installment. Remember mgs4 was the end of solid snakes story. I really didn't like mgs4 ending although it was a tear jerker for me.

I dont want a MGS, i want a MG remake. The original 2 games from the MSX. We need to revisit Zanzibar and outer heaven and it would tie MGS3 to MGS as well.
