During an interiew with French game magazine ‘IG’, Hideo Kojima has announced that Metal Gear Solid 5 is currently in development.

The only information Kojima has revealed is that the game will be using the new Fox Engine and the game-play mechanism will feature a blend of stealth action and interaction with other characters, similar to Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

"About Metal Gear Solid 5, I can tell you two things. There will be much question of infiltration, espionage, and convincing people to give you 'a favor' like in the last Metal Gear Solid,” said Kojima in the interview.

Kojima has also hinted the possibility that Solid Snake might return.

However according to Dan Dawkins at PS3M, Metal Gear Solid 5 may be set in Africa during 1970’s and gamers will once aging take on the role of Big Boss. This is based on several clues revealed on the MGS-Timeline along with how characters like Frank Jaeger (a.k.a. Grey Fox) and Big Boss have a background story that is set in Africa.

Metal Gear Solid 5 will be the ninth game in the main Metal Gear-series created by Hideo Kojima. The series is famous setting the foundations of the stealth action genre along for its dramatic style of story.
