"At some point, social will converge with core games," says Kojima

Hideo Kojima has said the trend of adding social aspects to core games will only continue as the world becomes more connected. So, don't be too shocked if the next Metal Gear contains some social aspects.

Speaking in a widely quoted interview with CVG, Kojima doesn't see a future where social and core games as perceived as separate entities.

"I don't think social and core games are separate, both will evolve together, and at some point I feel the social side of things will converge with the core games," he said. "I think in the future maybe Metal Gear will change in certain ways to integrate social aspects.

"If you look at other games on the market now you can see it's already happening, so Metal Gear may at some point get involved."

He goes on to say that in order for every demographic, whether it be core or casual, Kojima said the best from both social and core should be fused together.

Kojima said he is currently working on a game with social aspects, but wouldn't divulge anything more on the project.
