Silent Hill 4 motion actor Eric Bossic has just finished doing some work for the “next Metal Gear game” after Rising. He has since been very vocal about the progress of the game. In an interview with Silent Haven Bossic made the following statements.
“My past motion capture session was for an upcoming Metal Gear game, I will be back with Kojima again in the fall, and maybe other sessions. This title is a long way off.”
“I am working on a future metal gear, not to be released until next year summer at the earliest, if not later then that. Im doing motion capture only.”
“I can 100% say my voice will not be involved in this. I dont even know what the title is, they are all very secretive and sometimes even the scenes I act out I dont even know the full story, because they want to keep it secret.2
“I suppose it is fine to mention I am working on it, everybody knows Kojima is making something now, and I posted the photo on my page here with him. The only thing is that I cant ever answer any questions about it or talk about, not for sometime.”
Judging by how long it’s taken for Konami to release Metal Gear Rising I’m doubting we’ll actually see this new metal gear (We’ll assume it’s MGS5) next year. Also If MGS5 is indeed on the horizon it would have made more sense for it to be a next gen offering. Time will tell.
