Listen up, social butterflies. Stealth series Metal Gear might eventually contain social game elements. According to creator Hideo Kojima, social and core games will evolve together, until they converge.
“I think in the future maybe Metal Gear will change in certain ways to integrate social aspects,” Kojima told website CVG. “If you look at other games on the market now you can see it’s already happening, so Metal Gear may at some point get involved.”
Kojima said he had lots of ideas how social aspects could make Metal Gear “more fun”. And who doesn’t like fun?
“The goal is not to say social or core, it’s using social to integrate different core groups, so you have the core audience but then, via social methods, hardcore gamers can interact with less hardcore players.”
