Hideo Kojima Weighs in on Metal Gear Solid 5 Fakery

Yesterday saw what in retrospect are actually some rather dubious images of the Metal Gear Solid 5 logo supposedly taken from the game's intro cinematic, which was hastily followed by a confirmation from Konami that the snaps were indeed fake. Now Hideo Kojima has today thrown his two cents in, doubly confirming that the leaked pics were a complete hoax.

"I was wondering what was up, so I checked the net and was able to see the cause," Kojima wrote on his Twitter account [via Andriasang] regarding the pictures that had allegedly been taken behind closed doors at Comic-Con. "However, that title logo is completely fake. I apologise to those who were looking forward to it."

"I've been asked about the screenshots of MGS5 on the game sites," added Kojima Productions Senior Producer, Ken-Ichiro Imaizumi. These're ALL FAKE. We'll update when we're ready to announce."

Epic Games Design Director Cliff Bleszinski, helped inadvertently fuel the speculation flames a little, having caught a look at something seemingly secret by Kojima while behind closed doors. "Just got pulled into a back room at Comic Con by @HIDEO_KOJIMA_EN and showed some crazy new secret stuff. Wow," Bleszinski tweeted yesterday.

The images also suggested that Metal Gear Solid 5 was Kojima's secretive 'Project OGRE' and that OGRE was an acronym for 'Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavors'. You can now consider that all complete bunk.
