Kojima denies any involvement with Metal Gear Survive
Hideo Kojima denied any involvement with Konami's upcoming Metal Gear Survive during Tokyo Game Show today, claiming that he knows nothing about the game when questioned about it.

Translated, he went on to mention that to him, Metal Gear Solid is about espionage and political friction, and that it has nothing to do with zombies. Death Stranding's Character Designer Koji Shinkawa also chimed in, adding that he never once heard Kojima talk about Survive, and that for him Metal Gear is about two-legged walking mecha.


More information regarding the PlayStation 4 console exclusive title was revealed during the conference as well, including a tentative release date of "before the Tokyo Olympics" (which are to be held in 2020). Kojima also teased that a playable heroine could be joining Norman Reedus's side in the game, and that the title will introduce a completely new type of co-op gameplay never seen before, but will be playable in single player mode too.

Two pictures released during the event showcasing the studio's beginnings in a rental office can be found below:

Announced at this year's E3, Death Stranding will be Kojima's first game since his departure from Konami following the release of Metal Gear Solid V. It is a confirmed PlayStation 4 title, though the possibility of it making it to PC seems likely.
