Hideo Kojima has said that if he messes up his next project, he will leave the games industry.

The Metal Gear Solid creator and Kojima Productions boss tweeted: “The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo. If I mess up, I’ll probably have to leave the industry.”

Oh ‘noes!

“However, I don’t want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. It’s been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it’s just one person. For a start, it’s good,” he further added.

Already, Kojima has entered into “New Title Mode”, also tweeting about mechs earlier this week, which has led people to believe his next game could be Zone of the Enders 3.
