The latest Kojima Productions Report has confirmed the development team that worked on MGS4 and MGS: Peace Walker are now working on Metal Gear Solid: Rising.
Right at the beginning of the podcast, presenter Sean Eyestone says:
“Every once in a while we do this [move around] as one project finishes, then the next project starts up, so the key people have to relocate. Peace Walker’s winding down so Rising is winding up, so people have got to move around.”
Metal Gear Solid: Rising has gone quiet since its reveal back at E3 last year at the Microsoft press conference, but it could get a reveal as soon as the newest issue of EGM releases in print and digital form.
It’ll release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, although no official date has been set for it, despite a rumoured Christmas release.
As for Peace Walker, that releases next week on PSP in Japan. It’ll release in the UK on June 18.
