Kojima Would Like an Open World Current-Gen Remake of Metal Gear Solid, But No One Wants to Make it

Hideo Kojima put the old PlayStation version of Snake in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, but he would like to see more, as he revealed at Taipei Game Show during a media session reported by Famitsu.

When asked what he thinks about being able to play the earlier metal gear games on PS4, Kojima responded that he cannot work on it, since he’s busy with the new game.

That said, he elaborated further, by saying that he’d like to play in an open world Shadow Moses, so he’d like to see a remake of the first game. Unfortunately, no one steps forward to do it.

Such a production, Kojima continued, would not only need the tools and the engine, but also the workforce, as he thinks everyone would like to play in the first game.

Personally, I’d be all for it. Metal Gear Solid is still one of my favorite games, and playing it without the limitations of the original PlayStation, within an open world settings, would be a dream come true.

So, what are you waiting for, my dear developers? Kojima-san is waiting for your pitches.
