Speaking to Develop, Konami’s Hideo Kojima’s said he won’t be working on any “smaller” games in the wake of MGS4, instead sticking to his big guns going forward.

“Someone asked me earlier if I’d consider making a smaller game now that I’ve finished a project as massive as Metal Gear Solid 4,” he said.

“My answer is that, personally, I’d love to work on a smaller project. But, thinking about the time I have left to survive, I’d rather spend that time working on bigger projects.”

Kojima admitted that Konami puts him under pressure to create more Metal Gear.

“Yeah, there’s absolutely pressure there,” he added. “Maybe if I quit Konami that pressure might be a bit better, but since Konami handles the business side of our operations, yeah, there’s definitely a demand continue a series as successful as Metal Gear.”

There’s a lot through there. Watch E3 for the big stuff.
