Metal Gear Solid 4 in the making!!!

Found this on Game Informer a minute ago. Thought you lads would find it interesting.

at a lavish Berlin launch event to celebrate the March 4th release of PAL versions of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, the creator and director Hideo Kojima informed assembled journalists that, while Snake Eater did indeed wrap up his initial trilogy, he will be involved with a fourth Metal Gear Solid title.

Kojima has been touring Europe promoting the latest in the highly acclaimed series: Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The new game, which is exclusively for PlayStation 2, is set in the Cold War and sees its hero, Snake, entering a hazard-filled jungle to rescue a scientist who wishes to defect. As the game progresses, however, it becomes apparent that characters from Snake's past will return to haunt him and that his mission is more personal than originally thought.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater completes the Metal Gear Solid trilogy. All three titles convey their own message, with Gene, Meme and Scene being important in forwarding, controlling and judging information in the ongoing plot. This underlines Kojima's efforts to create products, which are much more than just fun to play: he creates games with a message, and is aware of his social responsibility, whilst striking a careful balance between tension and humor.

The confirmation of a fourth installment in the best-selling stealth operative series is a major announcement during the current launch promotion of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. For the as-yet unnamed title, which is currently in the planning stages, Kojima will act as Head of Development, serving as the Executive Producer and is responsible for the game plan. Leading the whole development, he has assigned Yoji Shinkawa as the Character Designer and Kenichiro Imaizumi as Producer.

No further details are available on the fourth Metal Gear Solid title, but we’ll keep you posted as more details become available.

No surprise. As long as the games keep selling well they'll keep making them.

Is it just me or does the wording of that news pretty much confirm that Kojima is not only executive producing the game but also directing it? I note this simply because his most ardent fans believed his claims that he would not when he made similar claims during the preproduction of both Sons of Liberty and Snake Eater and in both instances he was full of it.

Not surprising news but great to have a confirmation nonetheless.

He's said before that he gets so involved in the planning stages that inevitabley he ends up directing the game.

The part about releasing it on the "Playstation 2" means that we will probably see it in the next 18 months or so.
