CVG Sources: Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes 'is not Project Ogre'

Plus, Hideo Kojima confirms director role on the open-world Ground Zeroes

The mystery 'Project Ogre' game in development at Kojima Productions is not the newly announced Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, CVG understands.


A trusted source connected to the matter claimed that 'Ogre' is the codename for another project, previously believed - though not confirmed - to be Metal Gear Solid 5.

Ground Zeroes, announced on Thursday at a special Tokyo event, is an open-world variation of the Metal Gear Solid stealth gameplay model.

Addressing an audience at the Penny Arcade Expo on Sunday, Kojima confirmed that he will be masterminding the Zeroes project. This suggests that Project Ogre is being spearheaded by a separate team.

"One thing I want to make clear is that Ground Zeroes is something I'm making myself," he said. "I want to make it clear that Snake is back, but I'm also back."

The accompanying demo provided a second look at features revealed at the Metal Gear 25th anniversary event in Tokyo. The demo paraded new open-world gameplay features such as driving military vehicles and calling in an attack chopper for support.

Also revealed at the Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary event wasMetal Gear Solid: Social Ops, a social game inspired by Portable Ops and Peace Walker, and a Metal Gear Solid movie helmed by X-Men and Spider-Man producer Avi Arad.
