Hideo Kojima fears Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes may be too controversial

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

While the Metal Gear series has always been a rather mature series, creator Hideo Kojima is particularly worried for his next project, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. According to him, it attempts to address several mature themes, to the point that he fears that it may be too much of a risk to release it as it currently is.

In a roundtable discussion with Video Gamer, Kojima explained these fears. "Over the past 25 year I have tried to work with the Metal Gear series to introduce more mature themes, but really it hasn't gotten there yet. Compared to movies and books it still has a long way to go."

Hideo Kojima fears Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes may be too controversial

"That's precisely what I want to try to tackle with Ground Zeroes,” Kojima added. “Honestly I'm going to be targeting a lot of taboos, a lot of mature themes that really are quite risky. I'm not even sure if I'm going to be able to release the game, and even if I did release the game then maybe it wouldn't sell because it's too much. As a creator I want to take that risk."

Kojima concluded by saying that he is looking at the project from a creator’s perspective and putting creativity before sales potential. Whether this leads to a game that’s too controversial, even for fans of the series and modern gamers jived on Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto, remains to be seen.

MGS: Ground Zeroes is currently without a release date, but is set to be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
