Kojima: Project Ogre does not appear in new Metal Gear Solid trailer

Hideo Kojima took to Twitter, suggesting that the recently revealed Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is in fact not the mysterious "Project Ogre" he teased last year.

While Metal Gear Solid maestro Hideo Kojima was undoubtedly pleased with the reception his latest game, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, had at PAX Prime in Seattle over the weekend, there was one response that he became "sick & tired of." That response was actually in the form of a question: "Is that Project Ogre?"

Project Ogre was what Kojima called the mysterious game he teased in December. Back-to-back tweets included an image of a soldier and a tank, and another of translucent fabrics and bra straps. Kojima later told CNN that Ogre includes a "very open world where players can wander around and explore freely."

But it would appear that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is not that game. "Project Ogre is what the project that Ogre appears," Kojima wrote on Twitter. "Ogre does not appear in 'MGS Ground Zeroes' trailer." It was never clear what the "Ogre" in Project Ogre referred to, though it seems clear that it's more than a random codename. It's also worth noting that Kojima explicitly says that "Ogre" does not appear in the trailer, saying nothing of the final game. We've reached out to Konami for clarification.

A "leaked" screenshot from San Diego Comic-Con purported to show a Metal Gear Solid 5 logo, with the acronymical "Open Ground Reconnaissance Endeavors" written above it. Kojima took to Twitter to refute the veracity of the screen, noting that the "title logo is completely FAKE."
