Metal Gear Solid 5 To Be Released Summer 2013?

Published

Metal Gear Solid 5, the next game in the franchise likely won’t be released until Summer 2013 at the latest. The information coming from Erick Bossick, a mo-cap actor working  “on a future Metal Gear” with Kojima Productions.

According to an interview with Silent Haven, Bossick mentioned he was working on the next Metal Gear title, but production was still in the early phases.

“My past motion capture session was for upcoming Metal Gear game,” said Bossick. “I will be back with Kojima again in the fall, and maybe other sessions. This title is a long way off.” 

“I am working on a future Metal Gear, not to be released until next year, summer at the earliest, if not later then that. I’m doing motion capture only. I can 100% say my voice will not be involved in this. I dont even know what the title is, they are all very secretive and sometimes even the scenes I act out I don’t even know the full story, because they want to keep it secret.”

Metal Gear Rising: Revengence for the Xbox 360 is set to launch February 2013. Will we be given two Metal Gear Solid games in the same year? I personally don’t think so, however, I’d love to hear what you guys think. Let me know in the comment section below.

Bohemia Interactive Says ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is an Idea It Has “Wanted to Explore for Years”

The project lead of ARMA 3 ‘Contact’, Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, has explained why Bohemia Interactive opted to focus on an alien invasion for the new spin-off expansion.

In an upcoming interview with OnlySP, van ‘t Land outlined the reasoning behind creating a new extra-terrestrial spin-off expansion for ARMA 3 instead of developing a brand new project like ARMA 4.

On the official ARMA 3 Contact announcement trailer page, fans of the ARMA franchise left comments which appears to indicate that public opinion is in favour of a whole new game. However, van ‘t Land explained that ‘Contact’ actually came into existence because the Amsterdam studio was specifically set up to flesh out new ideas and create new IPs within the ARMA series.

“‘Contact’ originated from our relatively small Amsterdam studio, a team which was formed to develop original ideas for Bohemia. That specifically meant doing less traditional projects, even if they were DLC or expansions to an existing game.”

“Initially ‘Contact’ was not even specified to be an ARMA 3 expansion. We considered even a stand-alone game, but ultimately the benefits of the expansion route were far too great.” He continued, “It meant we could make use of a massive sandbox, and ARMA 3 players would benefit from additions even if they do not care about the setting. Without ‘Contact’, there likely would not have been another official ARMA 3 DLC or expansion, aside from our Creator DLC program of course.

van ‘t Land also revealed that many in the ARMA 3 production team have been wanting to explore the alien sci-fi genre for years, but now they finally got a chance to develop their ideas.

“The ‘first contact’ premise is one many in our team have wanted to explore for years. Some know that during its pre-production stage, ARMA 3 itself had some less conventional elements under its ‘Futura’ codename. We had done our own experiments with the topic on the side for fun, but now pitched it as an actual project, and were fortunately given the chance.”

ARMA 3 Contact is set to be released on 25 July 2019 on PC. The full interview with van ‘t Land will be available tomorrow.
