In typical form, Hideo Kojima has reportedly been talking about the possibility of Metal Gear Solid 5 again sustaining the 'will he/won't he?' buzz just a little longer.
Whisperings coming out of TGS yesterday suggested that Kojima had MGS 5 on the brain.
"Contacts in Japan" reported that Kojima said "he might work with Konami and make Metal Gear Solid 5."
The tip comes from PaulGaleNetwork.com and, although it's another one of these rumour mill offerings from unnamed sources, certainly seems to fit with the legendary developer's attachment to his world-beating series.
As usual this is all despite Kojima saying that he's done with Metal Gear after pretty much every edition he's ever made.
The last time he mentioned the possibility of Metal Gear Solid 5 was back in July when he wasn't sure what his next project would be.
The main Metal Gear focus at the moment is of course Metal Gear Solid Rising, but we're sure MGS 5 will crop up again before too long.
