Kojima on Metal Gear Survive: 'That's nothing to do with me'
Someone just had to ask...
Some people just can't help but stir the pot sometimes. In the wake of Metal Gear Survive's gameplay reveal, the legendary former Metal Gear developer Hideo Kojima was asked a question about the game during a stage presentation for his upcoming game, Death Stranding.
Kojima answered simply:
"That’s nothing to do with me!"
Unfortunately, he continued and called out the game's use of zombies (even though the reasoning is rather dumb). He said:
"The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage. Where do zombies fit in with that?"
Joining Kojima on stage was Yoji Shinkawa, a former character and mechanical designer for Metal Gear series who joined Kojima Productions to work on Death Stranding. He chimed in as well.
"If I had worked on that game, it would have mechs in it."
It's understandable that Kojima might still be a bit salty over his departure from Konami, but at the same time, there comes a point when you just need to let things go. It's been over a year, and he has a new studio and a new game coming out that the world is in love with by virtue of his name alone. In other words, he's made out pretty well compared to 99.9% of every other game developer that's ever been laid off.
Metal Gear Survive will release sometime in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
