Rumour – MGS: Rising to release in 2012

Am sad.

According to a Kotaku report, Metal Gear Solid: Rising is now aiming for a 2012 release and not 2011.

An official release window has never been give for the game.

The hack-and-slash title, which features Raiden from MGS2, was announced at E3 in June 2009 at the Microsoft press conference.

PS3 and PC versions were subsequently announced.

The title went underground for a year before re-emerging at E3 this year, with a further appearance at TGS.

Long waits have occurred before in the MGS series: between reveal and release, MGS4 was three years. However, recently, Peace Walker was released within a year of its unveil.

Rising is a MGS2 sequel and MGS4 prequel involving Raiden, although not much else on its story has been revealed. Series regulars have been hinted at turning up for the game, though

Producer Shigenobu Matsuyama said last week that more story details will drop at its next reveal.

    Hope this is the last MGS game ever, unless they release MG and MG2: Solid Snake remakes in a single game, MGS 1, 2, 3 HD Collection for PS3 or Portable Ops and Peace Walker HD Collection for PS3 too. It’s time for something fresh and new… Even if MGS is my favorite thing EVER since 1999 or 2000, I’m so damn afraid something like Silent Hill and most recently “DmC” happens to it… But somehow I know Kojima would never let that happen. And middle finger for haters who doesn’t understand MGS games’ plot, HAHA.

    I don’t mind it releasing in 2012. We’ve got enough brilliant games coming our way next year.

    Maybe they’re wacking in Move/Kinect support.

    Move would be amazing with this.

    scratch that. I could see this working well with move, but not so much with Kinect.
