There WILL be an End – MGS: Philanthropy is back on track

March 25, 2013

Since our chat with Hideo Kojima, in Hive Division we’ve been talking about finally resuming the Philanthropy project. Snake, Elizabeth, and Pierre were on a journey we were forced to interrupt, and those black clouds above the mountains of Daskasan have been staring at us ever since, asking “Will there be an end?” through Aoife’s ethereal voice.

And even if we were – and we still are – genuinely scared of the amount of work that will be required to bring that journey to its end, after a quick check with all key members of the original MGSP team, we decided to give it a try, so… There will be an end and there will be sequels to MGS: Philanthropy.

Right now we’re rummaging through the original story we wrote some 7 years ago. We are not sure yet about all the details of the operation, we just know it’s probably going to be a web series and that we’ll need to throw a crowd funding campaign in order to make it feasible.
We’re also likely to emphasize backstage and production reports compared to the past – we used to be a somewhat faceless entity that only surfaced when a release was imminent. We’re in 2013 and that will have to change, so any suggestion about how MGSP fans would like to be updated about the project or how they would like to interact with our team will be deeply appreciated!
Thanks everybody for the love you gave MGSP during these years – see you in Daskasan.

  1. Hi from England, all MGS fans love the English dubbed MGSP part 1
    I think a Dailey/weekly updated Facebook page that you guys could attach to your YouTube and websites is the best way to keep everyone interested and updated.
    Your film is amazon so far can’t wait to find out what the story is,
    If you guys need any help please make shout outs and the fans will help I’m sure

  2. YESSSS!!! I have been waiting for this news post for two years and I couldn’t be happier. You guys did such an amazing job the first time around and this series can’t be left in the dust. You guys already have such a good following that Kickstarter would definitely help out your budget plans.

  3. Following on from what Juan Manuel commented, it would be really cool to include the soldier who’s always sick, named Johnny (http://metalgear.wikia.com/wiki/Johnny_Sasaki)

    I’m so excited, and cannot wait for the sequels. I loved part 1; it’s probably my favourite fan-made game movie.
    Well done to Hive Division on everything so far. Keep up the fantastic work; although I’m sure you will.

    You should definitely do a Kickstarter or other crowd fundraiser.

  4. Conosco Metal Gear grazie all’Msx ed è il gioco che più mi ha appassionato. Ci ho giocato su ogni console. Ora vedere anche il film realizzato in maniera eccellente mi ha provocato un’emozione unica. Grazie !!! Continuate così !!!

  5. I remember when i was found some video on the internet about the metal gear solid movie. After when I saw it , I was counting the days when I found some information about the part 2. And then today I got it.
    So in one sentence: I cant wait, and thanks for the sequel / Sorry for the bad englis… /

  15. Ho trovato meraviglioso il primo film, spero davvero che riusciate a realizzare i seguiti.

    A tal proposito, nel caso non lo sappiate, molti progetti come il vostro riescono ad essere realizzati grazie alla raccolta fondi dai fans attraverso il sito http://www.kickstarter.com/

    I miei più sinceri auguri ^^

  17. Non credo di essere in grado di spiegare in poche parole la GIOIA che mi state procurando in questo momento.
    Contate su di me.
    Vi voglio bene.

  18. Ciao Ragazzi. Ho visto solo recentemente la vostra opera. Non posso far altro che farvi i complimenti per il vostro lavoro incredibile. Davvero è strano che un prodotto così ben realizzato sia stato fatto da gente con pochi fondi e mezzi. La passione per il cinema e per MGS vi ha fatto scavalcare ogni ostacolo evidentemente. Spero in un seguito e lasciatemi dire una cosa, se il cinema italiano osasse di più come avete fatto voi, al cinema andrei ben più volentieri. Sono pure contento che gran parte del film sia stato realizzato in Veneto. Continuate così

  19. AWESOME!

    Can you reupload the HD version of part 1? the 2.33gb .mov one? It’s dead and unavailable everywhere.

    Comment by 1xx7 — April 12, 2013 @ 04:14:37

  20. Good news! Did Kojima allow you guys to recieve money for the project? I loved the first movie and I sure like to make a contribution for the sequels

  23. Glad to hear it! You guys are badasses.

    As mentioned before, you’ll probably want to get a Kickstarter going for this.

    Comment by JamieD — March 30, 2013 @ 18:23:26

  24. I have seen Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy part I when it first came out and I was stunned about how it looked. It was to perfection and for the past 2 years, I been checking up on the sit every week to see when there will be Part II. Hope you guys do as good of a job as you did on Part I! Best of luck and hope to see it out soon!

    Comment by Andrew — March 29, 2013 @ 06:27:16

  25. I’m sure you all have considered it, but just in case you haven’t maybe you should look into using Kickstarter?

  29. FINALLY!! I’ve waited long years for the sequel, I watched the first and when it finished I was convinced it was a big budget movie. It was awesome, keep up the excellent work.
    Anything you need I’ll be more than happy to help. I´m from Colombia, and I would be thrilled to be part of your team in anyway. And please don’t forget to use the Cardboard Box and the typical soldier with a stomachache.
