Hideo Kojima, the creator of the Metal Gear franchise, today announced at the Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary event a new Metal Gear Solid title called Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.
The only news about the game, coming from attendees via Twitter, is that game is set in an open world environment. The demo, which showed the game run in real-time, was running on PC utilizing the new Fox Engine.
Avid fans have already figured out that the main character is Solid Snake's mentor Big Boss, judging from the eye patch strap and the Militaires Sans FrontiÃ¨res logo on his arm. This would mean that the game could be based in WW2.
As Kojima stated last year in an interview with Eurogamer, "I had several ideas for a game featuring The Boss and the Cobra Unit during the invasion of Normandy."
Kojima also used the time to announce a new Metal Gear Solid film for Columbia Pictures. It is going to be produced by Marvel producer Avi Arad.
