Hideo Kojima, the creater of the Metal Gear series shows no sign of slowing down as he enters his 50’s. Kojima is currently working on a project titled – Project Ogre, which he claims will “deal with quite a few issues that are delicate and taboo.” One thing that Kojima won’t be dealing with in Project Ogre — the Wii U.
According to Kojima, the Wii U interface changes the way the player interacts with a game, and because of that he would have to design a unique title for the Wii U.
Also during Q&A session, Kojima was asked about his name being synonymous with the Metal Gear franchise to which he responded: “”Of course, I’ve worked on Metal Gear up to now, and I love Metal Gear. But as a creator, I want to work on new projects and create new games. I want to do new, creative things—things no one has done before. So even if I keep on producing Metal Gear, from now on, I want to have something else that I can do apart from Metal Gear. Something that pushes the boundaries, something that may not even sell, but something that’s new.”
