Metal Gear Solid
creator, Hideo Kojima has been speaking to the Western media (see 'Kojima and the Nationalist Slur'
for why this in itself is news) regarding the future of the series.
Having said at E3 in July 2007 that MGS 4: Guns of the Patriots
would be his last involvement with the franchise, he's now told Reuters:
"MGS will always be around. I feel a responsibility to continue this series as long as users demand it. But it doesn't mean I'm going to sit in completely.
"I'll probably take a different role in the next game. Maybe I'll sit in as producer and let the young staff take control of the new series. I really want to go on to new things."
This idea of the future is strange given that the forthcoming MGS 4
was to close of the series. Not according to Kojima-san:
"Yes, it wraps up all the stories of the past MGS games. I'm not a genius like George Lucas, I didn't have this story planned out. I always tried to finish the story in each game. But by some miracle in MGS4 I was able to resolve the mysteries left behind in past games and resolve the side stories from past games."
