Hideo Kojima is once again teasing us, revealing that he is working on an important project. In a mysterious tweet Kojima revealed that if he messes up the next project he will probably have to leave the gaming industry. That’s a huge amount of pressure to put on yourself mate. Here is a quote from the tweets he sent last night (which was probably in the morning where he is).
“The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo. If I mess up, I’ll probably have to leave the industry. However, I don’t want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. It’s been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it’s just one person. For a start, it’s good.”
To add to the speculation, it has been reported that Kojima was seen tweeting about Mechs earlier this week. Which of course lead many to believe that his next project will be a Zone of Enders 3. I have a feeling Kojima’s statement about messing up the project is a matter of politics rather than him doubting his own ability.
