Kojima and Co. Won't "Look Into" ZoE3 Until After Rising
Although it has been clarified numerous times that Metal Gear Solid: Rising is not a Hideo Kojima MGS title, the industry mastermind still has some part in the production.
Therefore, we may have to wait until Rising is done before we hear about any updates concerning the new Zone of the Enders. According to VG247 citing a translated interview with JeuxFrance, Kojima said he will "look into" developing the long-awaited next ZoE installment after Rising is out the door. The bottom line is that Kojima Productions can't do everything at once, and let's not forget that Hideo also has a fresh "taboo" project that he's keeping under wraps for the time being.
"My team and I want to develop a new ZOE. But it turns out that Kojima Productions has limited resources in terms of teams and directors. So at this stage, we have not yet had time to work on ZOE 3 which has been postponed at the calendar. However, I think after Rising, I will look seriously ZOE."
Kojima has often brought up the subject of ZoE3, which is why so many avid followers have been on pins and needles, waiting for an official announcement. And of course, we'll have to hear more about this "taboo" game, too. Anything Kojima works on is guaranteed to get plenty of attention; the day the man produces a shoddy product is the day Gabe Newell stands on a PlayStation stage and says one of his new games will be "best on the PS3."
