If this is to be believed, we will be playing as Snake sooner than expected.
It seems that Hideo Kojima has just revealed the release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain via his twitter feed. He was sharing an advertisement for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain in Gamescom Daily. At a normal glance, the screenshot which can be found below does look pretty ordinary but if you zoom in, you will in fact see a release date for the game.
As shown in the image below, the release date is a crystal clear Q4 2014. Could the game be released in such a short duration? Possibly yes, since Kojima has already started working on his next game i.e. Silent Hill S. Another assumption that we can make is that this is simply a mistake in the magazine. But then why would Kojima tweet something that could create a misdirection?
As usual this should be taken a grain of salt but with Kojima you never know. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section below.
