The next game in the Metal Gear series will be Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, according to an announcement that was made today at the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary Party.

The announcement was meant to be embargoed and media were not meant to tweet about it, however, the news leaked via Twitter, revealing that the game was being made in the Fox Engine.

Few details are known about the game, but it is believed that it will be open-world.

We will update this story when more information is available.

Update: A 20-minute demo of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes was shown during the event, as detailed by GameSpot, demonstrating the upcoming title's stealth system and one of its settings.

Taking place in a remote military base during a rain storm, the demo showed a shadowy figure joined by armed soldiers, guard dogs, and a small boy in a cage. Ground Zeroes' interpretation of the traditional stealth system means now when discovered, Snake will use various tools to escape rather than simply receiving a "game over" screen.

The demo is said to run on a PC and played using an Xbox 360 controller. While the game and engine are designed with both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in mind, Kojima stated the engine will cater to next-gen consoles.
