Konami Denies Metal Gear Solid 5 Rumours

Konami has denied rumours that Metal Gear Solid 5 was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, calling them fake on its UK Twitter account today.

Earlier this morning, some Redditors claimed that Konami had announced the fifth instalment in its popular stealth-action series during Comic-Con, posting the above image as proof.

"Fake or real, we love a bit of speculation!" Konami said on its UK Twitter account later this morning, posting a link to the Reddit thread.

The company then followed up: "Seriously, just in case the ‪#pinch‬ ‪#salt‬ hashtags weren't enough — the chap who claims to have set up the fake rumours has been in touch."

I've reached out to Konami US for further comment and will update should they respond.

    I thought Kojima already announced this ? Is that what this is referring to? Kojima says "sure" and Konami says "Pay no attention to the man behind the glasses"?

    Does that say "Open ground reconnaissance endeavours"?

      Not "confirming MGS5" like the link says, but it's not the end of Solid Sneke.

    Fake. The title font is the old style that was used in MGS2 & 3. MGS4 had an entirley different font. Why would it be shown @ Comic-Con? Surely Kojima announces MGS5 @ TGS or the 25th Annivesary event.

      Helvetica was also used for Peace Walker which is post MGS4. But I agree there would surely be more fanfare than just a sneaky screenshot at Comecon.
