Kojima talks outsourcing Zone of the Enders 3

French video game website GameBlog recently had the chance to visit Kojima Productions to get a better look at PSP’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. However, towards the end of their video clip, the studio talks a bit about a possible Zone of the Enders 3.

Kojima says that the mech threequel is definitely on the top of his list, but due to changes in the indsutry, the project is postponed. He also mentions that Kojima Productions isn’t full of unlimited resources, either, and has to make due with what he has.

He also proposed other possible options such as Konami having another studio develop it.

“However, if people start saying “If it’s not Hideo who’s doing it, we don’t want this ZOE”, then it will be a completely different story,” Kojima said humorously.

Whatever they end up doing, if they end up doing it, is unknown at the moment. The game is still not in development and I’m sure fans would be a little on the weary side if Kojima wasn’t at its helm.

Thanks, GAF.
