Metal Gear Solid creator addresses fans on Twitter.

Hideo Kojima has confirmed on Twitter that the images of Metal Gear Solid 5 ‘leaked’ this morning are indeed fake.

He said: “Since this morning, I have been asked a lot about, ‘What’s with that MGS5 picture? Was it shown at Comic-Con?’ So I thought I’d take a look at the internet to see who the main culprit was. But that title logo is completely fake. I’m sorry if it got your hopes up.”

Well. There you have it. Nothing more to see here.

    I called it!

    (which doesn’t really give any sense of entitlement, but it’s good to know i can spot fakes XD)

    So someone mocked this up with a kooky, very in character subtitle to boot, ran it on a CRT television and took out of focus cell phone pics of the title screen and posted them on the internet just in time to coincide with clifford B’s tweet about a super”SECRET” project Kojima showed him behind closed doors?
    Wow, this guy worksfast!

    man i was sooo hype when i saw this :

    still i already know MGS5 will be made someday.

    i hope he does implement some of the things he liked from Deus Ex HR like the
    dialogue choices and the open ended style.

    i wonder if he’s still working with Suda 51 and Chiyomaru Shikura

    still i guess he is busy with Ender’s Project and Rising.

    too good to be true i guess :P

    now if someone can leak some gameplay footage.

    Notice how he didn’t say MGS 5 was not shown at Comic-Con. That makes me think something was shown behind closed doors. Must have been what Cliff got to see.

    This just makes me want TGS to get here even quicker.

      Yeah it is quite funny how the only thing he mentioned was that the “Logo” was obviously fake, hinting that he may have indeed shown MGS5 at Comic-Con, but those pics aren’t real:P

      Kojima’s a clever cat

    Aaaaaaand my boner died.
    Oh, well.

  • EspadaKiller

    Blah I bet what Cliffy B saw was MGS5, and MGS5 is definitely coming. It’s just a matter of time anyway.

    I knew it.
