Kojima: MGS5 on Fox Engine confirmed, “We are not done with snake yet”
It seems like Snake is still needed to save the world or revive Konami’s fortunes. Hideo Kojima has confirmed to French IG Magazine that Metal Gear Solid 5 will be released one day, and will run on the Fox Engine.
“There will be a Metal Gear Solid 5 with the new FOX Engine, but what we’ve shown was not gameplay, or anything like that. It was only a demo that we had developed internally and released because the lighting and interactions with the environment had fooled everyone,” Kojima said (via Gamekyo).
“About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you “a favor” like in the last Metal Gear Solid. I liked the idea of social interactions in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but we will see.
“And if I say more, the female ninja public relations officer, who is behind the door, I will be carved up into pieces. So it’s better that we meet again when the time comes to talk about Metal Gear Solid 5.”
He also revealed that Metal Gear Solid Revengeance was not a true Metal Gear Solid game. He added that Snake will return even though Metal Gear Solid 4 was supposed to be his last game.
“Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid. This is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots.”
