Kojima doesn't want another delay for MGS4

mgs4It’s winding down folks! Metal Gear Solid 4 is getting closer and closer to reaching that coveted "gold" status, and Kojima isn’t spotting any more delays down the road. With MGS4 being delayed twice already, gamers have been waiting very patiently to get their hands on the latest masterpiece featuring Snake in glorious PS3 graphics.

"We’re committed. Mr Kojima of all people is committed to it because he really hates to disappoint people, and I know that he is embarrassed by what happened with the 2007 slip into 2008, because we even put it in our trailer with Raiden slashing away ‘2008’ and when you go that far you put a seal on it and then he has to delay it – that really hurt" says assistant producer Ryan Payton. He continues to say that they are planning on a simultaneous worldwide release but without any date set in stone at the moment. "Any date that you’re seeing is just speculation," he says.

Right now the team is entering the "bug-checking" phase, but with MGS team, they can be adding new gameplay elements three weeks before gold status. But Payton confirms that "For the majority of the team, this is the end."

Stay tuned for continuing coverage on MGS4 in the next couple of months.
