You may have seen a few sketchy images of a “Metal Gear Solid 5” logo drifting about today. Don’t piss yourself just yet: amazingly, it’s fake.

As Kotaku reports, some Redditors claimed the game was shown at Comic-Con last week, using the image as proof.

Said Konami UK on its Twitter account: Fake or real, we love a bit of speculation!”

Adding: “Seriously, just in case the ‪#pinch‬ ‪#salt‬ hashtags weren’t enough – the chap who claims to have set up the fake rumours has been in touch.”

Hideo Kojima also took to Twitter to confirm the logo is “completely fake”.

If that’s as exciting as today’s going to get, we may as well all give up now.
