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.
