|In an interview with Enterbrain, Kojima revealed that he is at a crossroads as to what his next project is going to be, and Metal Gear Solid 5 is one of the options. "For the next game I make, it's either MGS 5 or an original game. I only have these two choices."
After dismissing the possibility of a new Z.O.E., Kojima contradicted himself when describing this new venture. "The next project is amazing. The plan is pretty much solidified. Although recently, it has wavered a bit." Kojima described how he got back from E3 and began to re-think what he wanted this next title to be. "I'm not sure myself, but I began to want to do something different from what I'd wanted to do originally."
Kojima did say that preliminary work has begun on this new game, and that he knows that it can't take forever to come out.
