Legendary game director Hideo Kojima jumped on the Kojima Productions podcast to tackle a number of rumors surrounding his company's future. Offering simple "Yes" or "No" responses to a handful of inquires, Kojima revealed that "Yes" there are some big plans in the works for next year's 25th Anniversary of the Metal Gear franchise [via Andriasang].
Kojima also confirmed that, "No", there is no big news from Kojima Productions at next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Other "No" responses came from questions regarding a Metal Gear Solid 5 announcement (presumably during E3), an NGP port of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of Liberty, showing up at the Microsoft Press Conference, and a November 1, 2011, release for Metal Gear Solid: Rising. Kojima also reaffirmed the previously confirmed announcement that Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D would launch by the end of the year.
