    Hideo Kojima discusses Metal Gear's history, promises Fox Engine reveal August 30th



    On August 30, in Japan, Kojima Productions will reveal its future with the debut demo of its Fox Engine – the tech powering the company's next, as yet unannounced game. Legendary game director Hideo Kojima revealed the demo date (which corresponds to a Metal Gear 25th anniversary event) in a post on the PlayStation Blog focused on the anniversary.

    Despite crafting one of the industry's most celebrated series, Kojima remembers certain struggles with the project: "I was a designer for Metal Gear Solid, but I was not a producer, so I had no say in the budget, release date, or promotion of the game. I remember when they told me what the release date would be and I had no say in the matter ... these are bitter memories for me," he said.

    The franchise's surge in popularity (and sales) helped Kojima's team think bigger for each subsequent project; however, it was visiting other teams that helped Kojima Productions set up for its own future with the Fox Engine. "In order to develop the Fox Engine, I had to understand how things worked elsewhere, so for a year and a half I visited studios around the world, and since we are Japanese people we were able to see the way others worked and recognize that in many respects their methods were better than ours." Kojima notes that the PSP release of Peace Walker came from the desire to work on a new project while the long work on the Fox Engine was unfolding.

    It's unclear what shape (or camo) the August 30 reveal will take, but we're hoping the link of the Fox Engine to the Metal Gear anniversary will spell something big for the stealth franchise.

    I can't wait to see it.

    Could this mean Kojima revealing MGS5? Hope so.

    I'm thinking it's Metal Gear Solid 5. He did announce the game back in June.

    If not, there's always the Tokyo Game Show in September.

    That would be great, a full unveil for next gen PS although a multiplatform release would be more likely to happen.

    Kojima won't reveal a PS4 game before Sony reveal the PS4. And TGS is a games convention so no Hardware will be revealed there either.
    MGS5 and the other project( ZOE3) are guaranteed current gen games

    I'm expecting that their next game (what ever it is) to be a current generation game and multiplatform. I'm pretty much certain that the Fox engine is focused on current generation consoles and PC, but I wouldn't be surprised if they also made it so they could use it for next generation consoles as well.

    I think the Fox engine will be able to compete with other engines like Unreal and Cryengine. We'll see. I remember the forest demo they showed last year looked awesome.
