Hideo Kojima's next entry in the Metal Gear Solid series won't launch until the summer of 2013 at the earliest.
That's according to Eric Bossick, the voice and motion capture artist behind Silent Hill 4's protagonist, who says he's working with Kojima on the new game.
"I am working on a future Metal Gear, not to be released until next year summer at the earliest, if not later then that," he told Silent Haven.
"I'm doing motion capture only. I can 100% say my voice will not be involved in this. I don't even know what the title is, they are all very secretive and sometimes even the scenes I act out I don't even know the full story, because they want to keep it secret.
"I suppose it is fine to mention I am working on it, everybody knows Kojima is making something now, and I posted the photo on my page here with him," Bossick added. "The only thing is that I can't ever answer any questions about it or talk about, not for sometime."
Rumours of Metal Gear Solid 5's development have circulated for a number of months, though Konami has not officially announced the project. However, back in June Kojima reportedly told a French games magazine that the title was in development.
