Hideo Kojima is one of the most important Game Directors in the past and modern videogame panorama , this is a fact, but it is also true that on certain occasions he enjoyed taking us for a ride with certain declarations and / or announcements; the most sensational example was, of course, the presentation at the time of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain . With this solid initial basis we would like to immediately warn our dear readers that what we are about to write are mere speculations , there is no concrete proof but it is a way to “study” the mind of a great genius.
Hideo Kojima, just in these minutes, posted on his official Twitter profile a particular post that would speak of a “metal” or “metal” in fact. It is useless to hide that within a few seconds the reddit and the post in question were invaded by fans who immediately began to speculate on the arrival of something related to the glorious Metal Gear Solid series . Just yesterday, chapters two and three were removed by Konami from their respective stores, bringing fans of the franchise to attention.
If we tried to mix the recent tweet from Hideo Kojima and the removal of the first two chapters, it is obvious that we too begin to think that some announcement related to Metal Gear could come out soon. But will it really be like this? Let’s try to take a step back. Last December, Kojima Productions opened new hires for programmers and designers giving way to assume that the new and highly anticipated game was certainly still in embryonic but well underway phases. Reading the description, it could be seen that the studio was looking for personnel capable of working on 3D models of weapons, gadgets, mechas and more. It therefore remains absolutely plausible that Kojima’s new project is obviously not Metal Gear, but rather something with giant metal robots as protagonists.
In short, we, like you, we sincerely hope to see a hypothetical chapter of Metal Gear on current gen consoles , but it is more likely that the cryptic messages posted by Hideo Kojima refer to something else, another ambitious project like the excellent Death Stranding , which by the way has just turned two years old. Let us know your opinion with a comment below in the dedicated section.
