In an interview with 1UP, Big Boss’ papa Hideo Kojima expressed his great hope to finally be free from the MGS series; and then proceeded to sigh his way through a few details on – you guessed it – MGS5.
“I have three concepts for MGS5 already,” he said. “What would be ideal for me with MGS5, though, is that we don’t do those. If the team picks one of those concepts, I have to get involved again, which I don’t want to do.”
“There are already so many good ideas from the staff, so if we select one of those, that would be really good. At that point I could really rely on them and take the step back to be the producer, which is the ideal situation, I think.”
Will he? Won’t he? Would you rather see a heartbroken Kojima churn out another work of staggering genius, or something New And Different from his team?
