Metal Gear Solid 5 is NOT confirmed ... yet

Metal Gear Solid 5 is NOT confirmed ... yet  photo



Oh, that Hideo Kojima! Everything he touches turns to Troll Dust, and the "announcement" of Metal Gear Solid 5 is no exception. It turns out Official PlayStation Magazine was a little bit liberal with its wording when it teased its MGS5 news, as Kojima didn't confirm anything ... yet. 

Turns out that the mad genius said, "I think we’ll probably have to make it at some point, but what that will be, we have no idea," when talking about Metal Gear Solid 5. He went on to say that, whatever the future of Metal Gear Solid holds, he won't be as hands-on as he used to be.

"As far as my involvement in the project is concerned, [it] probably won’t be as much as it was with MGS1 --maybe I can do just one stage! For MGS1 I made the maps myself, laid out the enemy routes myself, did everything hands-on – that level I can’t do again."

Don't worry though, there's still some Kojima fun coming. He recently confirmed he was working on a game codenamed Project Ogre -- but we'll have to wait and find out what that's all about. Maybe it's Metal Gear Solid 5!

That Metal Gear Online trailer is still so dang good

Steven covered this well-edited footage of Metal Gear Online in December, but here it is again with commentary by online community manager Robert Peeler. Yep, that's good enough for me. The balloon-firing trap shown at 1:54 is the stuff of dreams. Same goes for the enchanting plush puppy. (At one point it was going to be a "real" dog, but the designers didn't want us to shoot that.)more
