Metal Gear Solid remake comment a ‘misunderstanding’

'Right now, it's impossible,' Hideo Kojima says.

Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima is not seeking a studio to develop a remake of the first Metal Gear Solid in Fox Engine, the creator said on Twitter.

“There’s a rumor about remaking [Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2], but that’s not true,” Kojima said, referencing this article published yesterday. “It has been modified in the thread or something.

“This mistranslation could happen when translating into Japanese/ simply misunderstood by media. No one would read the original article.”

He clarified: “I’ve said ‘I’d want to remake [Metal Gear Solid with] Fox Engine if poss[ible], but we still have ‘V‘ and other prioritized titles that [make it] imposs[ible] to make.

“I wouldn’t mind if talented creator from outside studio making this happen. That’s what I answered during the [question].”

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the latest in the series, is coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3.

Tweets: 1, 2, 3, 4.
