Mo-cap actor Eric Bossic just finished up work on a Metal Gear title being developed at Kojima Productions and it’s not Rising. Does that mean it’s Metal Gear Solid 5? And could we expect to see it sometime next year as Bossic suggests?

According to an interview with Silent Haven, Bossic says that he just finished work with Hideo Kojima’s ultra-secretive team for a project that will utilize his motion capture but not his voice.

Here’s the relevant text from the interview:

I am working on a future metal gear, not to be released until next year summer at the earliest, if not later then that. Im doing motion capture only. I can 100% say my voice will not be involved in this. I dont even know what the title is, they are all very secretive and sometimes even the scenes I act out I dont 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.

We know Kojima and his team are plugging away at the new Fox engine-based Metal Gear title since last November, but as it goes with Kojima, you simply never know when the actual final game will be out.
