Kojima: "I will make games until the day I die"

But Metal Gear creator might employ robots to help him out.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has pledged to keep on making games until the day he dies.

As widely publicised by publisher Konami, it's the Metal Gear series' 25th anniversary this year. When asked by Eurogamer at a Smithsonian event in Washington DC yesterday whether he'll still be making Metal Gear titles in 25 year's time, Kojima replied that he has no plans to ever retire from the games business.

"Honestly, I really don't know in 25 years from now if I'll still be making Metal Gear, or even if Konami will still be around - I really can't say," he explained.

"But I can say that if I'm not dead by that time I will still be making games in some form. I don't have any intention of retiring - until the day I die I will be making games.

"Maybe by that time technology will be so advanced that I can make a game all by myself by using a bunch of robots," he pondered. "Who knows?"

Kojima, who is about to turn 50, is currently at work on a mystery project utilising his team's new Fox Engine tech.
