Update: Metal Gear Solid 4 producer Kenichiro Imaizumi says that this is “just a rumor“.
Original: According to a senior US publishing source close to CVG, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is set to announce a “major PlayStation 3 exclusive” title at the Tokyo Games Show come this September.
The site obtained this knowledge yesterday at E3, where they were told that the legendary developer will announce a “massive PS3 exclusive that will own the show” come TGS.
Konami’s publishing. Go figure. Apparently, Kojima wanted to show the game off at E3, but has chosen to polish his demo until September in order “to ensure it’s bulletproof”.
Kojima Productions, the developer’s studio, showed off three games at E3 this past week: Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (in conjunction with Mercury Steam), Metal Gear Solid: Rising (which is being developed by a younger team and not Kojima-san himself), and Metal Gear Solid 3DS: Snake Eater for Nintendo’s new handheld.
