Look at that big blue teasing two.

Metal Gear Rising 2

In a PlayStation 4 lineup trailer show at the Sony booth during the Taipei Game Show, a teaser for what appears to be Metal Gear Rising 2 is shown.

The teaser pops up at 2:46:39 in the linked Twitch stream. Specifically, it’s a “2” created in the style of the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance logo. It follows The Order: 1886, and ends as soon as it arrives.

Update 02/01/15 at 11:00 a.m.: According to games industry journalist Geoff Keighley, whatever this was is not a tease for Metal Gear Rising 2.

“Slice that rumor: No Metal Gear Rising 2 tease at Taipei games show. Spoke to [Kenichiro Imaizumi] from [Kojima Productions], it is not true,” Keighley said on Twitter.

A Twitter user asked what the Metal Gear Rising-typeface “2” was then. Keighley simply responded with, “#Team 2,” whatever that means.

Update 02/01/15 at 11:27 a.m.: Kojima Productions’ Kenichiro Imaizumi adds, “We don’t know [what that “2” is]. Sounds like it just a countdown number “2”. It’s SCE made trailer.”

Update 02/01/15 at 2:50 p.m.: Despite what Geoff Keighley and Kenichiro Imaizumi are saying, it appears the “2” is a direct rip from the Metal Gear Rising font.
