Konami Already Hinting at Metal Gear Solid 5?

Well, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is hitting world-wide exclusively for the PLAYSTATION 3 on June 12, 2008, but is Kojima Productions already working on the sequel?

Today’s Metal Gear Solid 4 press event in Tokyo finished with an audio clip of a phone converation between franchise foe Revolver Ocelot and an unknown character, with only Ocelot’s side of the conversation presented in the clip. Mark MacDonald of 1UP translated the clip:

[Ocelot’s voice]
We just finished the press conference.
Everything went according to plan.
We’re entering into the last phase of the mission.
Do you want to execute the launch day surprise?
Yes, that’s right.
Akihabara, New York, L.A….
Live, simultaneously throughout the world…
Yes, it’s under control.
The VIP’s are happy to participate.
Yeah, that’s right.
That person.
Yes sir, understood.
So on June 12th…
By the way, what should we do about “The Project?”
Yes, that’s correct.
That man has fallen.
It’s about the sequel.
Yes, indeed.
I see.
Yes, sir.
Mr. CEO.

Could Konami be hinting at a Metal Gear Solid 5, or perhaps a sequel of Kojima’s other titles such as Zone of the Enders? More evidence to support this is that Konami mentioned they have more big projects in the works for the PLAYSTATION 3 at today’s conference. We hope so.
