Kojima Cans Zone Of The Enders Sequel
If you’re a fan of Hideo Kojima’s mech-fighting franchise, Zone of the Enders, and you were a bit underwhelmed with the recent HD re-release of the previous titles, you can either take a sigh of relief or prepare yourself for a shock with what I’m about to say next. According to Kojima himself, all the work on a Zone of the Enders sequel has ceased and the teams behind the title disbanded.
Why? Speaking on a late night radio show, Kojima explained that after the sales figures for the HD release failed to reach any significant number, the team had a huge discussion regarding the sequel that has been in the works since it’s announcement in May of last year. The reveal teased a new setting, but now fans will never get to experience the first new title for this franchise since 2003.

The Zone of the Enders HD Collection was marred but bugs and weird transitions from 30 FPS to 60 FPS, which essentially the smooth combat of the original titles. Kojima has stated that the team behind the collection is currently working on a patch for the PS3 version, but no such attention is being given to the Xbox 360 collection.
While not his most popular series, especially locally, Zone of the Enders was rather huge for the niche market that hi mech-combat. Whether this franchise is well and truly dead is yet to be seen, but with all this work happening on Metal Gear Solid at the moment, it’s almost certain we won’t be hearing about another possible sequel for a long time.
