Good news, lads! According to Next-Gen.biz Konami says that "Metal Gear man Hideo Kojima will “always” be involved with the Metal Gear franchise, despite the game designer’s statements to the contrary." Kojima said many times Metal Gear Solid 4 is his last MGS game. Apparently, Konami has a different opinion. Some marketing guy told Next-Gen.biz in a recent phone interview that they'll never let the MGS franchise go, nor the Snake. We madprofessors understand that of course. On the other side we also understand Hideo Kojima who - afer four Metal Gear Solid games - wants to go further. Anyway, Konami can always use him as an adviser or consultant for more Metal Gear Solid games.
