Kojima and Shinkawa react to Metal Gear Survive

During the PlayStation TGS stage event, where Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa held a Q&A session, someone asked about Metal Gear Survive. Is it something Kojima had come up with before before leaving Konami, as some rumors have suggested? Not at all, according to Kojima.

Via the official Japanese Kojima Productions Twitter (translated by Siliconera): “I’m not involved at all, and I don’t know anything about it. Personally speaking, Metal Gear Solid is espionage to me, political fiction. I don’t think zombies would appear in such a world.”

Shinkawa added: “I never heard anything about that from [Kojima]. Personally, I consider Metal [Gears] to be bipedal weapons. I wonder if they’ll appear.” Kojima: “A Metal Gear without a Metal [Gear]? That’s the Famicom version lol.”
