The other day Konami held a press conference dedicated to Metal Gear Solid to celebrate its 25th Anniversary – and of course, to announce new stuff. Two big items of news? The Metal Gear Solid movie is, according to Hideo Kojima, on its way. Avi Arad showed up to announce that he is producing the whole affair, but given that he’s been producing lots of game-based films that are currently going nowhere, let’s just keep this one in “maybe someday” folder. The real news is a new game, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, a supposedly open-world stealth game in the Fox Engine.
Oh, there was a Metal Gear social app announced too, but let’s face it, you want to know more about Ground Zeroes. Konami is saying they’re aiming for current gen systems, but can move up to next-gen if need be, which says to me that they’re as antsy as most other developers to move on to the next big thing.
