The announcement of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes last week also debuted the new FOX graphics engine for the game, and it raised questions over the possibility of the game launching on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Series creator Hideo Kojima confirmed that the game will arrive on current consoles, though the developer is also working with next-generation hardware.
The PC running the game in the demo is comparable to a PlayStation 3, Kojima confirmed. The footage in the demo (below) is real-time, including cutscenes.
Kojima also confirmed that he is working on the game rather than being a producer.
"One thing I want to make clear is Ground Zeroes is something I'm making myself. I want to make it clear that Snake is back, but I'm also back. I'm putting all my effort into that," Kojima added.
The game is confirmed as a prologue to an unidentified title. Of the Metal Gear Solid series, Metal Gear Solid 3 is a prequel to Solids 1, 2, and 4. Ground Zeroes depicts a decidedly younger Big Boss, so a rough guess would put the game before Metal Gear Solid 4, but it could also come before before Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2, or even the original Metal Gears, as the setting remains unconfirmed. Kojima admitted he wanted to create the experience of Metal Gear Solid 1 with modern hardware.
CVG also reported Ground Zeroes is not the Project Ogre title in development, originally expected to be a Metal Gear Solid release.
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes' release date remains to be announced.
