Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima has confirmed that the freshly announced Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is unrelated to his mysterious Project Ogre title.
Kojima tweeted earlier today that he was "sick & tired" of the constant speculation over whether the newly unveiled title was Project Ogre.
While I am happy to know people liked "MGS Ground Zeroes", I’m sick & tired of people keep asking me like "is that project Ogre?" here in Seattle everyday.
"While I am happy to know people liked "MGS Ground Zeroes", I’m sick & tired of people keep asking me like "is that project Ogre?" here in Seattle everyday," he wrote.
"Project Ogre is what the project that Ogre appears. Ogre does not appear in "MGS Ground Zeroes" trailer."
So it would seem that Kojima Production is working on whatever Project Ogre is alongside Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. Does this mean it’s the much-rumoured Metal Gear Solid 5? Back in July some images surfaced that appeared to show the game’s title screen with the words "Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavour" above it, so that’s still very much a possibility.
Speculation about the link between the two titles hasn’t been helped by the fact that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes runs using Kojima’s new Fox Engine, which many people assumed would have its first outing with Project Ogre. So for now at least it looks like we’ll have to make do with consuming all the info out there on Ground Zeroes, unless Kojima has a change of heart and decides to spill the beans on Project Ogre in the near future.
Metal Gear Solid: Project Zeroes is a new title in the Metal Gear Solid series focusing on Solid Snake’s mentor, Big Boss. While no release date has been set, it’s in development for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
