Kojima already has ideas for MGS5

But doesn't want to get involved.

Hideo Kojima has said he already has three ideas for Metal Gear Solid 5. Only, he doesn't want the team to pick any of those because he doesn't want to get involved. He's stepping back, remember.

"I have three concepts for MGS5 already. What would be ideal for me with MGS5, though, is that we don't do those," Kojima told 1UP. "If the team picks one of those concepts, I have to get involved again, which I don't want to do.

"There are already so many good ideas from the staff, so if we select one of those, that would be really good. At that point I could really rely on them and take the step back to be the producer, which is the ideal situation, I think."

The renowned developer is far from finished with the industry, and will use the freed time to pursue an experimental idea born long ago.

"Well, I want to create something new, and it's difficult to explain since no one's seen it before. I don't know if it would sell very well," he said.

"I've been warming this up for a long time, and I keep thinking that I'll try this idea. But ideas always change, so I really don't know what the final outcome will be."
