Well that was fun while it lasted. Game Reactor posted an interview where Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain director Hideo Kojima talked about remaking the first game in the series using the Fox Engine. However, Kojima recently took to Twitter to clarify that it’s all one big misunderstanding.
“There’s a rumor about remaking [Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2], but that’s not true. It has been modified in the thread or something. This mistranslation could happen when translating into Japanese/ simply misunderstood by media. No one would read the original article.”
“I’ve said ‘I’d want to remake [Metal Gear Solid with] Fox Engine if poss[ible], but we still have ‘V‘ and other prioritized titles that [make it] imposs[ible] to make. I wouldn’t mind if talented creator from outside studio making this happen. That’s what I answered during the [question].”
Disappointed? At least Kojima addressed the rumours rather than staying quiet and allowing it to stew. Meanwhile, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be coming up soon for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3.
