Metal Gear Solid creator and Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima is impressed with yesterday’s new Grand Theft Auto V gameplay trailer. So much so, in fact, that he’s worried his upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain won’t compete.
“I saw the new trailer for Grand Theft Auto V,” Kojima exclaimed on Twitter. “It was amazing, so awesome. The degree of freedom—it’s the future of games! It’s on a different level than other games. But honestly, I’m upset. I can’t see our ‘V’ gaining victory over their ‘V.’ But Rockstar’s production team is the best. Make no mistake, they increase what’s possible with games.”
Grand Theft Auto V is due out for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17. A release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, has not been announced.
