If you thought Hideo Kojima’s new game would be a virtual reality experience, you were wrong, as the legendary creator of Metal Gear Solid revealed in an interview on Polygon.

Kojima-san declined to give details on his new creation besides the fact that it will “big” and that it won’t be a VR game.

“I was thinking in my first year out I would make something indie, something small, maybe a game or a movie. But after talking with friends, acquaintances and seeing what fans were saying, I was convinced I should work on a big game, so that possibility was gone.”

Kojima-san also talked about the reason why he decided to go with a partnership with Sony.

“I was fortunate to have offers from many people, studios and publishers from all over the world, but I’ve known Sony for quite a long time now. They respect what I do, respect me. It was just a matter of trust.”

Can’t say I’m not excited to hear more, but we’ll have to wait longer for that.
