After a highly documented tour around the world, Hideo Kojima revealed that he has been in search of a third party game engine for his upcoming game.

Taking the stage at the 16th Nordic games conference, Kojima revealed that he has been meeting with top game engine designers in an effort to find the best and newest technology for his mysterious title. While he also reiterated that he feels most comfortable working with tools that he created, his desire for people to actually play the game has caused him to expedite the development process.

Stating, “I want to release it to the people who are waiting for it, for that title we are going to use a third-party engine – the reason I am travelling arounds the world is looking for such technology to use.” An effort that will Shave months or even years off of the development cycle, Kojima is eager to get right into the process of development.

Although still in the early stages of development, hopefully we aren’t 5 years away from getting to play Hideo Kojima’s upcoming Sony exclusive.
