Metal Gear no more?

  The Japanese anime publication Web-NewType.com recently featured an interview of gaming arbiter Hideo Kojima, the creator of the storied Metal Gear franchise. Conducted by Ghost in the Shell director Mamoru Oshii, the discussion was geared towards the future of the Metal Gear series. In the interview, Kojima-san divulged that the highly-anticipated PlayStation 2 incarnation, Megal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, is to be the final installment of the famed franchise. The following are Kojima-san's pertinent comments from the interview:

Oshii: So Metal Gear Solid 2 will conclude the entire series?
Kojima: Yes.
Oshii: This isn't like "end of chapter 1" type of deal is it?
Kojima: No, we'd like to avoid something like that.

  The celebrated series was created in 1987. Kojima-san's most recent project, Metal Gear Solid on the Sony PlayStation, has shipped a staggering 5 million copies globally. Konami hopes to release the awaited MGS2 sometime this year in Japan. An Xbox version of the adventure has also been slated. While perhaps contrary to the plans revealed by Kojima, many industry experts maintain that the series may well see a rebirth due to the superlative success that's sure to follow the title's oncoming release.
