While not the most surprising news, we can finally put an end to the rumors and speculation about Metal Gear Solid 5—it’s been confirmed by none other than Hideo Kojima, the mind behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
Speaking to the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, Kojima discusses plans for Metal Gear Solid Rising, and confirms that he is in some way working on Metal Gear Solid 5. However, it is unknown if he is reprising his role as game director, or just standing back from a producer’s point of view.
