Hideo Kojima Denies Metal Gear Rising 2 Tease
Hideo Kojima and Konami producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi are denying what appeared to be a tease for Metal Gear Rising 2 during the Taipei Game Show.
Slice that rumor: No Metal Gear Rising 2 tease at Taipei games show. Spoke to @Ken1555 from @Kojima_Pro_Live, it is not true.— Geoff Keighley (@geoffkeighley) February 1, 2015
Kojima and Imaizumi, by way of Geoff Keighley as seen in the tweet above, say it was not a Metal Gear Rising 2 tease. To see the non-tease yourself, head here.
Hideo Kojima is a crafty, unpredictable marketer. He fooled everyone into thinking Metal Gear Solid 2 starred Solid Snake and recently announced he was working on a Silent Hill game by making everyone download and play a demo. It's hard to take him seriously in matters like this. You could also take a semantics argument route and point out that he didn't say Metal Gear Rising 2 isn't in development – he just says it wasn't a tease.
