Kojima Productions recently revealed that they will be adding trophy support for their Playstation 3 exclusive title, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, four years after the game’s original release. Sean Eyestone, the Assistant Producer at Kojima Productions, recently took his time to explain why the process took so long. You can check out some screenshots from the game in the slideshow at the top of this article and his explanation from the developer’s latest podcast episode below:
We’ve been trying to get it off the ground. It got started, stopped, started, stopped. It’s been a long process. Unfortunately, it just works out that way because of the staff we have. Unfortunately, we don’t have unlimited staff and, whenever we finished one project, they almost immediately jumped unto the next; which means we couldn’t get the programmers and the designers necessary to work on trophies because they have always been busy with things like Peace Walker or various other projects.
Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, which was developed by Kojima Productions and published by Konami Digital Entertainment, was first released for the Playstation 3 on June 12, 2008. In addition to the trophy support, the updated version of the game will also feature a full install option.
Existing owners of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots will be able to download a patch with the changes while new re-release will come packed with the update on disc.
