Kojima-san admits Zone of Enders 2 suffered from "errors" in its release window, which was his fault. If he hadn't of "made a mistake" with its launch it could have been "a major" series.
"It's a title that even now, six years later, is extremely well received by the press and users. However, due to errors in setting the release time frame, while it was a medium hit, it did not achieve the expected numbers," Kojima-san , reports .
"Everything was due to an error by me, the producer," he continued. "At that time, if I hadn't made a mistake with the release date, Anubis might have ended up a major Kojima Productions title to follow MGS, still seeing development as a series."
Fan support of the series continues to this day, which has given Kojima Productions enough of a confidence boost to seriously consider dusting it off again. "We'd like to make an Anubis sequel at some point. Also, we feel that if we do it, we'd like to make Anubis succeed this time. I already have a game plan and method for sales in my head. However, we don't know if it will be green lighted. The production lines within Kojima Productions are currently full."
"I cannot make a promise about time. However, I can promise a sequel," he added. The Metal Gear creator has already said he wants to work on something new and original next.
