It wasn't enough for Konami to say that leaked title screen was false . They were just a little too playful about it – initially – and speculation shot through the roof.

But now the master himself has confirmed the publisher's clarification. The rumor has found its way to Hideo Kojima, who gave us the following update via Twitter :

"Since I've received inquiries about the MGS5 title screen/the announcement made at ComicCon which I had no idea of, I looked up on the net and found the source. But please note that title logo is completely FAKE. I apologize to those who were looking forward. Anyway it proved I can still create the buzz."

At about the same time, Kojipro senior producer Kenichiro Imaizumi also said the image is fake. Now, just bear in mind that these guys are only saying the supposed leaked photos from a Comic-Con behind-closed-doors presentation are fake. They're not saying MGS5 is fake…that game has gotta be real, of course. This just means they didn't show off MGS5 this past weekend, which shouldn't surprise anyone.

As for Kojima's secret Project Ogre, we just want a peek.

I will just pretend that logo was true in my own little fantasy world ūüôā

Regardless, Project Ogre has me interested.

Y U Report On Rumorsssss!!!????

Just kiddin'. Pretty clever to make it all blurry to sell it to the public. I'm sure KojiProd has their hands full with Ogre until further notice. MGS5 will likely be next gen.

Did they? I only go there when this site uses them as a source which isn't often. I have to admit the comments sections can be comical.

Kojima pro is having a big Metal Gear 25th anniversary press event august 30. The producer of kojima pro, Sean eyestone said there would be some announcements coming out of the event.

I'd say we'll get some info about MGS5 then. Maybe a teaser trailer or something.

MGS5 would be nice.. but would it be to much to ask for a new Z.O.E. game as well. >.>

With all the press and the HD Collection I am still expecting a ZoE3. Mind you I played thought ZoE 1 a few months back and it really was not what I remember it being o.0 Still never played 2.

A new Z.O.E project was revealed by kojima a few months ago (although, he himself is not directing it).

Just search Enders Project, and you'll find some info on it.

Curious, do you want MGS5 on the PS3 or next gen?

I personally would like one more Metal Gear this gen, as I am still not ready to embrace the next gen yet + Having only one MGS on the PS3 is upsetting, I was always hoping for one more. (Although Peace Walker in the HD collection is a mighty compromise.)

I'm with you, i'd much rather see it on the PS3.

Though, given how much work (and hype) Kojima put into the Fox engine and Transfarring, i expect MGS5 to be on PS3, 360, and Vita.

That's right folks, the Vita too. Kojima is on record saying all of his future projects will utilise Transfarring

just because there saying its fake does not mean its fake!
there probably just covering their a$$es!
if it is real though there goes the idea of MGS5 being a launch title for the ps4.
well unless they were stupid enough to show off a next gen game before said system was even announced, which i highly doubt.

i hope project ogre has absolutely nothing to do with MGS though!
im really sick of MGS, hes been working on it for so many years now its about bloody time the guy got out and tried something different!
id love to see him create a unique experience, a new genre if you will like david cage did.
i think he would match a game like that perfectly!
if not that than maybe a psychological thriller like alan wake, or even better a survival horror!

I was thinking about it….MGS5 could tell Liquid's story about how he was involved in the gulf war and maybe his training to become a solider
