According to a report over on Kotaku, Konami’s hotly anticipated ‘Lightning Bolt Action’ fest Metal Gear Solid: Rising won’t see the light of day until 2012.
The game was first unveiled at E3 2009 and stars Metal Gear Solid 2’s floppy-haired hero Raiden in an adventure that bridges the gap between Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 4.
Konami has remained relatively tight-lipped on the project up until recently, though it was assumed by many that the game would be out next year. Apparently, this is no longer the case.
Nonetheless, Rising's producer Shigenobu Matsuyama has promised us more details on the game's story during the project’s next big reveal, so stay tuned for further information.
Metal Gear Solid: Rising is due out on PS3, PC and Xbox 360 platforms.
