Metal Gear Solid Rising could become a series of its own according to the game’s producer, Shigenobu Matsuyama.

Speaking to Enterbrain in a podcast, Matsuyama said rumours suggesting Rising is just a Metal Gear Solid spin off are far from the truth.

“MGS Rising is not a side story. We’re aiming for two Metal Gear Solids, making a series out of another standard.”

Studio director Hideo Kojima has no direct involvement in Rising, instead concentrating on MGS: Peacewalker and MGS: Solid Snake 3D.

No date yet, but it’ll release on PS3, 360 and PC.
