Remember when Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima said that he wouldn’t direct another game in the series after MGS4? We all know how that turned out when Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain were both revealed, but in conversation with Xbox Wire, Kojima has reiterated that he won’t be doing this forever.

“The only thing I can say for certain is that I personally will not be able to carry MGS forward for another 25 years. However, with new talent at the helm guiding the series through each new stage, I can easily imagine a world 25 years from now where a new MGS franchise continues onward into the future.”

A “new” franchise isn’t exactly unheard of – as the likes of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance have proven – but honestly, when will Kojima himself retire from the franchise? It may not be for a long time yet.

Meanwhile, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is scheduled to release in March 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360.
