Metal Gear Solid 5 Reportedly Revealed At San Diego Comic-Con

Metal Gear Solid 5 Reportedly Revealed At San Diego Comic-Con

UPDATE: In case the images and the rampant skepticism didn't give it away, Konami all but confirmed on its UK Twitter feed (via Kotaku) that these images are fakes.

ORIGINAL POST: First, the punchline: Hideo Kojima reportedly revealed Metal Gear Solid 5 in behind closed doors sessions at San Diego Comic-Con 2012. What we know is that Kojima was indeed there in San Diego, and that he was at least host to some sort of Spanish-language roundtable interview (per his official Twitter feed). We also know that Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski got a private showing of some secret Kojima work, per his own Twitter feed.

Now we have what appear to be spy photos (via NeoGAF) confirming the reveal of Metal Gear Solid 5, purportedly from the aforementioned Kojima-hosted behind closed doors sessions at SDCC. One image shows familiar title text for Metal Gear Solid 5, with the words "Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavors" -- a reference to Kojima's Project OGRE? -- above it. Two other images (after the jump) offer more text-on-a-black-background, though there's nothing even hinting at gameplay.

Assuming of course that these images are legit. There are a lot of skeptics in the NeoGAF crowd who call these fakes. It's certainly a strong possibility; they are, after all, blurry photos snapped off of a screen, the sort of thing that could easily be mocked up and released into the wild by some joy-killing troll.

Kojima confirmed in a June interview that Metal Gear Solid 5 is indeed in production, and that it's being bult on the Fox Engine. He's also in the past shared images and info on Twitter concerning the Fox Engine, including one Metal Gear-looking image that many believed to be connected to Kojima's long-teased Project OGRE. It's all speculation for now. Looking at these photos, what do you think?
