Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima will show off the Fox Engine next month according to an interview on the PlayStation Blog. Kojima commented that “although the Fox Engine is not finished we are ready to show what it can do… on August 30th in Japan to be more specific.”
Kojima added that the engine is “nearly finished, but the only way to be sure it works is to create a game at the same time and improve the engine with our tools as we go along. The original plan was for that game to be Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, but a lot happened along the way and instead it is being made with the engine they have at Platinum Games.”
The Fox Engine debuted at E3 2011 and we’ve little more of it since. Rumours however have started to circulate that the game to showcase the new engine will be Metal Gear Solid 5. Could this be the case? Kojima originally stated that an actual game using the engine “may take a while.”so anything is possible. Maybe we may see the next Metal Gear come August 30th.
