Is this the next MGS game?

On the Kojima Productions Recruitment Site that just went up, a link can be found leading to ‘classified information’, urging you not to click on it. It appears as a brown envelope with a photo sticking out.

Clicking on the link will reveal a picture with artwork of Big Boss on it, with a dog standing at his side.


Notice the patch on Big Boss’ shoulder with the head of a dog on it, and a text that says ‘Diamond Dogs’. Kojima posted a picture on his Twitter showing such a patch:

Diamand Dogs is the name of an album of David Bowie, as well as a movie from 2007 about a mercenary hired to protect a group of fortune hunters in the wilderness of China. It is also the name of a science fiction story written by Alastair Reynolds. Also, mercenaries are referred to as ‘Dogs of War’. Whether it refers to one of those things or not, remains a mystery for now.

Interesting is the fact that the dog looks similar as the one in the FOX Engine demo that was revealed last E3.

What could it all mean? A new Metal Gear Solid game? One of the reasons Kojima Productions is recruiting for new staff? Hopefully more will be revealed during the Game Developers Conference next month.

    If it’s another game featuring Big Boss, as it appears to be, I hope they’re not forced to retcon more stuff to make it all fit in the canon they’ve established.

    They should just focus on the parts of BB’s career which didn’t directly affect the saga that follows. Maybe his time in the Green Berets, although it looks like he’s part of ‘Diamond Dogs’ in this game, whoever they are.
