Metal Gear Solid creator to continue creating Metal Gear Solid games

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is going to keep creating Metal Gear Solid titles, Konami has confirmed. Their exact statement: “Hideo Kojima will continue working on Metal Gear Solid games”. Who would’ve guessed?

Additionally, Metal Gear Solid: Rising producer Shigenobu Matsuyama touched on the game’s place in the Metal Gear Solid universe during an E3 round-table discussion in Los Angeles last week. He also mention’s Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid game.

“I’ve been asked a lot, ‘Is this going to be a side-story or spin-off to the Metal Gear Solid series?’, but what I’m positioning is that there will be a Hideo Kojima game that is Metal Gear Solid, but what we are planning as Kojima Productions is have this Raiden Rising as almost as a standard so that there’s an Metal Gear Solid and the Rising going back-and-forth in the future.”

It’s unclear whether he’s talking about a completely new Metal Gear Solid from Kojima or the recently announced Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater for Nintendo 3DS. If anything, a rumor popped up directly after E3 saying that Kojima is to announce a “major PS3 exclusive” at TGS. Looks like only the future will tell.
