The fans of the franchise will most probably have to wait until the second half of 2012 at the very earliest before they will be able to get their hands on the game.
The game will be released for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
The game will star Raiden and will be set some time after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Kojima will be acting as executive producer with Yuji Korekado from Kojima Productions and Atsushi Inaba from Platinum Games producing. The team have yet to formally announce the director of the game.
