Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Slips To 2013?

So you remember last year when everything that was announced for Q4 2011 suddenly upped sticks to Q1 the following year?


Amazon are now listing Metal Gear Rising Revengeance as February 28th 2013. That is a Thursday so seems like a placeholder date – who knows when the game will arrive. are not even speculating and their site simply says ‘Date to be confirmed.’

If you are looking for revengeance this year may we suggest you look somewhere else, may I suggest

  1. I’d rather it wasn’t released at all.

    • Me too looks awful not only that it ruins the great name of ‘Metal Gear Solid’

    • hell no, the gameplay is bound to be great. Its a freakin spin-off too so I don’t see how it can be insulting to “MGS fans” even if the damn thing has never been Solid at all times.. but Just Metal Gear.

      • What is insulting is showing the MGS fans great looking gameplay at E3 from kajima productions and then years later showing them some gameplay from platinum games. I have nothing against platinum they are good at what they do but what they do is NOT MGS.

        This went from my most anticipated game of 2012 to least anticipated game. That is why i’m so pissed.

      • It wasn’t even much, all we see is Raiden chopping up Melons and soldiers… and Gecko.

        I think its good, lets Kojima work on others games.

      • It was enough.

  2. I’m looking forward to this game. I liked the gameplay trailer. The story might not be the best yet but if it plays somewhat like Bayonetta it’s going to be a day one buy for me.

    I’m not gonna hype this game as if a MGS title, because it aint. But I’m still very intressted in how it turns out in the end.

  3. I really hope it slips into development hell and then gets cancelled as this is a middle finger and a dump on the MGS franchise. Sorry, i’m a bit bitter whenever this comes up in the news as it seems that my favorite franchises are turning to rubbish. Imo. And yes, i know i come off as a bit of a fanboy with this comment. :S

    • It’s a spin-off. You don’t have to buy it.

      • Dont worry Jack we wont buy it.

      • I know but i’m still struggling to believe this actually exists and has thrown TEA out of the window. :(

      • I’d like to throw tea over Kajima.

      • Yes it looks like a typical “cheesy” Japanese game from the trailer but the game still looks interesting, recent history of Platinum suggest it might be good.

        Metal Gear: Rising.. where’s the solid? <Spin-off.

    • Your not alone mate..

  4. damn you TC, i had stuff to do, and you point me to that site.
    now i’ll never get it done. :(

    oh and that’s a shame about the game.

  5. Now i finally understand how DMC fanboys feel :(

    • They haven’t even changed anybody and the developer have a good record of great games, how can it be bad to Metal Gear fans…?

      DMC is a completely different controversy, 1) change of character for Dante 2) Developed by Ninja Theory 3) Runs on Unreal Engine 3, thus bound to be 30fps apparently .

      • It’s the same thing. Ninja theory making it now not capcom. Personally i’m looking forward to DMC cus i wasnt a big fan of the last ones and loved enslaved but i can see how change will upset a lot of fans from DMC just like this MGS is doing now.

      • Metal Gear Rising doesn’t even change Raiden so I don’t see how Metal Gear Solid fans will be pissed at a non-stealth game.

  6. I’m buying it, stealth game or not. Metal Gear has been losing its stealth heritage for some time now anyway, so I don’t see what all the fuss is about.

  7. Wish Kojima would do a ‘MGS5’ for PS3 or PS4 only :P (i know he is not doing this pile of sh*t ‘Metal Gear Rising Revengeance:Or whatever they call it now’) LoL:D

  8. 3 confirmed titles and possibly a 4th that are pushed back to 2013. My money is still on Dishonored and Resident Evil 6 being delayed to 2013.

  9. It’s nice to see a brilliant premise being shot to shit for safe “durr hurr look at da actshunz” can be excused by “It’s a spin-off”. Make no mistake, this is an action game holding on to dear life via the MGS name, not an MGS game with an action focus like the original E3 premise by KP.

  10. This is just a reflection of what is going on in konami as a whole, look at everything they have done recently, things cant be going well, 3 silent hill games in one month seriously?, on top of that the MGS collection was harder to find than waldo at T in the park. Something is not right at konami.
