Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance might not be the only Metal Gear game released in 2013. Voice and motion-capture actor Eric Bossic, who played the lead role in Silent Hill 4, says he's been enlisted for the next game in the series and it might only be a year away.
"I am working on a future metal gear, not to be released until next year summer at the earliest, if not later then that," Bossic told Silent Haven. "I'm doing motion capture only. I can 100% say my voice will not be involved in this."
Bossic added that he's not sure what the title of this new game is. The development team is being very secretive at this point. He hasn't been told all of the story details for scenes he has acted out.
All that Bossic can confirm is that Snake will be appearing in the plot. He's playing the role of one of Snake's allies. No mention of whether it's Solid Snake or Naked Snake.
While Metal Gear Solid 4 seemed to wrap up that particular series, there's plenty of ways to keep the story going. It's just a matter of creating another group of idiosyncratic terrorists who steal a Metal Gear. Seriously, it's that simple.
Konami plans to hold a 25th anniversary celebration for Metal Gear on August 30th. Series creator Hideo Kojima is due to make an announcement at the event. If a new MGS game is truly in development, perhaps they'll announce it at this event.
