Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has confirmed he won't be attending the E3 expo next week.
Speaking via his particularly lively Twitter feed, Kojima said: "Since I decided not to go to E3, I made an interview video hastily."
That's not to say you should lose all hope of some Metal Gear or other Kojima goodness at the show; those up on their news will remember Kojima teasing last week that "several Kojima Productions announcements" will be made on June 2 - the same day as Konami's pre-E3 press conference.
That came after he sparked worry among fans when he said something he had been working on for a year has "become meaningless". A cancelled Kojima project is not good news.
Konami's pre-E3 show kicks off at 5pm PST on June 2 (1am UK time, June 3).
