Metal Gear Solid 5 to Release Next Year, Says Actor

An actor has confirmed that he had done some motion capture work for a new Metal Gear Solid game, due out next year.
Silent Hill 4 voice artist Eric Bossick revealed "I am working on a future Metal Gear, not to be released until next year summer at the earliest, if not later then that."
"I'm doing motion capture only. I can 100 per cent say my voice will not be involved in this," he continued. "I don't even know what the title is, they are all very secretive and sometimes even the scenes I act out I don't even know the full story, because they want to keep it secret.
"I suppose it is fine to mention I am working on it, everybody knows Kojima is making something now, and I posted the photo on my page here with him. The only thing is that I can't ever answer any questions about it or talk about, not for some time..."
Bossick did go a little further though, saying "Well, what I can tell you is I am NOT doing Snake, but an ally of his."
Series creator Hideo Kojima discussed some brief snippets of information about the game back in June, stating that the game may well take pointers from Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s social interactions. Some images were leaked too, but it was later revealed that they were fakes.
Should we expect an official reveal at the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary celebrations in Tokyo on August 30th? Sounds like a decent bet. Stay tuned.
Oh and it’s worth noting that - obviously - no platforms have been confirmed for the title yet.
