Hideo Kojima will not be directing Metal Gear Solid Rising for PS3 and Xbox 360. Instead he plans to focus on Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for PSP.

According to Famitsu, Kojima will be designer, director and producer of Peace Walker which he describes as “Metal Gear Solid 5 inside me.”

“I’m not the director. I’m not doing game design either. Although, I do issue complaints (laughs). But, not too much,” he said.

He will, however, be producing Rising alongside Kenichiro Imaizumi.

The Konami press conference is later this afternoon. Maybe we will hear more.
