Kojima Dashes Dreams, Confirms MGS5 Logo Image is Fake
Hideo Kojima took to his twitter account to confirm that the purportedly leaked MGS5 title screen and images are a hoax.
Earlier last night, videogame fans around the world was caught off guard when a supposedly leaked title screen of Metal Gear Solid 5 was making the rounds.
I hate to put an end to your Project Ogre dreams, but series director Hideo Kojima has confirmed via his twitter that the images were indeed a forgery.
Here's his translated tweet (thanks, Andriasang!).
I was wondering what was up, so I checked the net and was able to see the cause. However, that title logo is completely fake. I apologize to those who were looking forward to it.
There you go, straight from the man himself. Of course, conspiracy theorists think that this is merely Kojima and Konami's way of doing damage control.
It's also worth noting that while Kojima has said the title image was fake, he didn't deny that Metal Gear Solid 5 is in development, either. So, get your tinfoil hats on and let's predict when he's going to officially announce his last Metal Gear game -- as was the case since MGS2.
