During the Kojima Productions report, a listener asked how the Fox Engine would relate to next gen consoles. The Kojima Productions staff shed some light on this issue.
- The Fox Engine is dynamic and scalable, so it is suitable for multiplatform and next-gen systems.
- Compared to previous engines made by the studio, such as the Metal Gear Solid 4 engine it’s much easier to make games on.
- Some features for easier use include: (almost) drag and drop level design, realtime collision detection, everything being dynamic, recalculated on the fly (such as enemy routes).
- Kojima Productions can make games faster and better with it, so expect more games from them.
