Speaking out during last week's Tokyo Game Show, Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, when questioned about possible involvement with Konami's newest Metal Gear spin-off 'Survive', was adamant the espionage shooter-turned-zombie-survival game due next year has "...nothing to do with me."
Since the well documented break-up of Kojima and Konami leading up to the release of Metal Gear Solid V, Konami seemingly quit the majority of the video game industry instead setting its sights on branded pachinko machines and licenced games like Pro Evolution Soccer. So it came as a surprise when the company announced a bewilderingly spin-off to the popular Metal Gear franchise not long after phasing out the series' creator from its ranks.
When quizzed further over how much involvement he had with the title prior to his departure to head 'Death Stranding' at his own company, Kojima perfectly outlined why he wouldn't have had any input in the new title saying; "The Metal Gear games are about political fiction and espionage, where do zombies fit in with that?"
Regardless of the fact, Metal Gear Survive exists. It's coming next year. Konami even released a lengthy gameplay presentation last week.
