But, Will There Be Another Metal Gear Solid?

Last year, Konami spent an insane amount of money on the Metal Gear 20th Anniversary Party. The swish event was at the Ritz Carlton in Tokyo Midtown. Throughout the event, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima kept mentioning that the fourth entry was the last game in the series. That this was it! But as Konami CEO Fumiaki Tanaka kept saying that he hoped Kojima would make more Metal Gear and others kept saying they hoped there would be more Metal Gear, Kojima was overheard at the end of the night saying that there would be more!

Granted, how involved he would be in the future games is up in the air. So it wasn't exactly a surprise when a sequel was vaguely hinted at the end the press conference. But is it a Metal Gear Solid sequel? Dunno, it was way too vague. But, really, Konami (and Kojima) would be silly not to eventually do MGS5 with Metal Gear being its second biggest IP after Winning Eleven and a huge exclusive for Sony. Sure, this is pie-in-the-sky talk, but let's just hope Kojima gets the chance to branch out and do something different in the interim.

    It was pretty obvious to me for a while now, but if what your reports say were right, he said it would be the end of the _Metal Gear Solid_ series. Emphasis on "Solid". That's implying that the Solid series were done, but that's part of the Metal Gear franchise as a whole. There's already a "gaiden", and that's the Acid series. That's the technicality, the loophole that'll let more Stealth games be made, if they ever want to.

    Can't wait for Metal Gear SIGINT..!

    Personally, I think it'll be kinda old if they did another game with the same sort of character (like Snake). I hope they change the stereotype a bit. That's *if* they do one.

    Personally, I'd like to see a female lead character. She has to be badass obviously, and sexy as hell to boot. Kinda like what FFXIII is doing.

    With Kojima at the helm, you can be sure the next MG will be EXTREMELY well received.

    :D
