We all knew it was coming eventually, but now it is finally official, Metal Gear Solid 5 is in fact real and currently in the works at Kojima Productions. The mastermind himself, Mr. Hideo Kojima shared the big news with IG Magazine, telling the outlet: "About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you 'a favor' like in the last Metal Gear Solid." Not exactly sure what he's referring to with the whole "favor" thing, but hey, some things are bound to get lost in translation.
As expected, the interview also confirms that the game will run on the studio's Fox Engine and will serve as the next true installment in the series, unlike that outlandish spinoff from Platinum Games. "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance never claimed to be a Metal Gear Solid. This is not a game about our beloved Solid Snake. It is a spinoff that tries something different. We have not yet finished with Solid Snake, despite the fact that I wanted to let him die at the end of Guns of the Patriots."
