Game developer Hideo Kojima told the CNN news agency in a phone interview last week that his new "Project Ogre" title will be set in an open world. Kojima told CNN, "Rather than making something very cinematic, [I plan to] make something very free." Kojima also mentioned in the interview that the game will provide around 100 hours of gameplay. Kojima added that players will be able to explore the world freely.
Last week Kojima posted an image on his Twitter account (pictured at right) from his "new work" that was created using the FOX Engine, a new software developed by Kojima Productions.
Earlier today, Kojima also posted an image displaying what the FOX Engine's avatar creator can do, noting that it took about one hour to create the avatar.
Kojima made his first comments on Project Ogre in the 65th issue of Great Britain's Official PlayStation Magazine on November 29. In it, Kojima described the tone of Project Ogre as "subdued."
Developed by Konami, the first Metal Gear stealth action game shipped in 1987. The first Metal Gear Solid game shipped for the PlayStation in 1998. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection package bundling Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and Peace Walker shipped on November 23 in Japan. Metal Gear Solid: Rising, the first Metal Gear Solid title that Kojima will not write or direct, will ship for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2012.
