This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Metal Gear series, and when Eurogamer asked Kojima if he would still be making games in another 25 years he replied:
“Honestly, I really don’t know in 25 years from now if I’ll still be making Metal Gear, or even if Konami will still be around – I really can’t say. But I can say that if I’m not dead by that time I will still be making games in some form. I don’t have any intention of retiring – until the day I die I will be making games.”
“Maybe by that time technology will be so advanced that I can make a game all by myself by using a bunch of robots,” he added.
EGM’s TAKE: Games being made by a bunch of Hideo Kojima controlled robots? Imagine the possibilities. Personally, we would hate to see the Metal gear series ever end, but we can’t imagine a Metal Gear game without some kind of input from Kojima. Hopefully he will be making games for a very long time to come.
