What’s Hideo Kojima Doing On The New Z.O.E.? Not Enough.

What’s Hideo Kojima Doing On The New Z.O.E.? Not Enough.

Late last week, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima revealed a new Zone of the Enders project. Fans of the sci-fi series have been waiting for Kojima to start work on a new Z.O.E. The thing is, he won’t be doing much much work on it.

While he’ll be acting as producer, Kojima won’t be writing, designing or directing the game. Instead, staff at Kojima Productions will be handling those duties.

Kojima will be offering his support. But as he is busy with his upcoming game, codenamed /”Project Ogre”, he cannot devote himself 110 per cent to the new Z.O.E.

Hideo Kojima doesn’t have to make Metal Gear Solid anymore, but he does have to make a new Zone of the Enders. Eventually.

    • as spring-heeled said, he was only a producer. Having said that, i imagine he was a very very hands on producer, and his influence would go a long way.

      • Producers generally have a lot more creative involvement in projects than people credit them more. They aren’t all just there handing out the cheques and telling directors what they can’t afford.
