"Metal Gear Solid 5" Reveal Never Happened, Says KonamiImage via Reddit

Konami UK has shot down rumors that the publisher unveiled Metal Gear Solid 5 at Comic-Con last weekend.

Commenters on Reddit claiming to have seen the announcement provided a fake title screen as "proof" of the big reveal.

Konami UK responded to the thread this morning, tweeting; "Fake or real, we love a bit of speculation!"

Just to be safe, Konami tweeted again to clarify that the image is fake, and that the announcement never actually occurred:

"Seriously, just in case the   hashtags weren't enough - the chap who claims to have set up the fake rumours has been in touch."

Though creator Hideo Kojima has indicated that Metal Gear Solid 5 may be on the way, neither Kojima Productions or Konami have officially confirmed that the game is in development.
