Konami subsidiary Kojima Productions is keen to team up with Platinum Games for a Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance sequel, the developer says.
“If people like Metal Gear Rising, if the fans who play this game ask for more, that would be awesome,” Revengeance producer Yuji Korekado told Eurogamer.
“That would be great for us and we would be happy to consider working on another game in Metal Gear Rising.”
The game could not have been created by either studio in isolation, so any follow-up would also need to be joint effort, said Korekado.
“We think of this as a product that came from the collaboration of both. We both have our strengths and they were put together.
“So if we were to create a sequel we definitely want to work in a similar partnership.”
The Metal Gear world had many characters and setting that would be suitable for such a project, he added.
“If I start saying names and specific characters or elements then people will start thinking we're actually working on those projects, but I believe on Snake's side of course there are many characters how are very interesting.
“Not only that, but also on the enemies' side we believe there are many characters how have potential to be worked on.”
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is due out on February 22 next year, on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
A PC port is being considered, but the Wii U appears out of contention.
“One of the strongest appeals of the Wii U is the GamePad. However, we've constructed Metal Gear Rising so you can fully enjoy the game on the controllers whether it's on the PS3 or the Xbox.
"So, currently we aren't thinking about Metal Gear Rising on the Wii U,” Korekado said.
