Konami has revealed that Hideo Kojima is in the process of working on a brand new title completely separate from the Metal Gear universe.
According to Fumiaki Tanaka, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Kojima’s new project is apparently in conceptual stages, with little in the way of concrete information available. Tanaka also noted that the title is unlikely to be unveiled this year, with Kojima still in the process of writing a scenario for the game.
On the subject of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Tanaka said that the company is forecasting sales of one million units in Japan, with overall sales expected to match those of earlier titles in the series.
When pointed out the PS3’s installed base in Japan has yet to total two million, he noted that many users are simply waiting for the game to be released before purchasing the system. Furthermore, he believes that the machine’s user base would likely increase before MGS 4 hits shops, based on the release of several high profile PS3 titles from other companies.
Tanaka also reiterated that he feels Sony’s online service, the PlayStation Network, is the most suited to Konami as a whole, affording the company more freedom when compared to the Xbox 360 or Wii.
