In an interview with Game On Daily, Konami community manager Graham Day was asked the proverbial question of whether or not Metal Gear Solid could continue without Hideo Kojima. His answer?
“Yeah, course it can. Metal Gear is about the story, it’s about the characters and I think, yeah…”
In speaking about collaborations with other studios, such as PlatinumGames with Metal Gear Rising, Day cited the fact that the game was taken in a completely new direction yet it was an incredibly good game, despite being lead by another team.
Day also addressed the fact that Konami is ceasing production of AAA games. “Don’t believe everything you read in the press. That’s never changed. Things have been taken out of context but that’s never changed.”
Perhaps a new Metal Gear Solid is on the horizon after all, without Hideo Kojima?
