Everyone got their panties in a wad when some leaked images that seemed to depict Metal Gear Solid 5 came straight out of Comic-Con. Considering Hideo Kojima himself was at Comic Con, it led people to believe that he was showing the next tale of Solid Snake off to the press, and other select people. This, however, has been confirmed to not be the case.
Kojima took to Twitter to crush the impending rumors once and for all. Tweets included..
“Since I’ve received inquiries about the MGS5 title screen/the announcement made at Comic Con which I had no idea of, I looked up on the net and found the source,”
“But pls note that title logo is completely FAKE. I apologize to those who were looking forward.”
Kojima Productions senior producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi also went ahead to Tweet about the rumors.
“I’ve been asked about the screen shots of MGS5 on the game sites. These’re ALL FAKE. We’ll update when we’re ready to announce.”
Well, that pretty much sums that up. For now, we will just have to deal with the added trophy support that is coming for Metal Gear Solid 4.
Come on guys, how could Kojima have time to develop a new game when he has his hands full tweeting images of his noodles?
