Let's hope we're right. If this turns out to be wrong, I will literally lose all hope in humanity. Life as we know it will cease to exist.
I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but hosting Kojima Station and revealing release dates on Christmas day are huge parts of it.

That's the reason why he got fired :p
He didn't get fired. He had to go back to the US because of family issues. He made it clear. The guy was hired by 343 Industries and now has his own studio.
6 Metal Gear Solid V Fan Theories So Crazy They Might Be True

Yeah, So this absolutely did not blow my mind. :/ I wasn't privy to some of these.
Mostly dumb theories.
Nothing. I just like the enthusiasm of MGS-GAF.

Ok but he didn't get fired because he announced a release date via a podcast.
What makes you so sure? revealing one of the biggest secrets of a game on a podcast before the official PR is out is a pretty big fuck up.

Except for the bit where Bauer voices Medic. Dunno wtf is going on with Ishmael being voiced by him as well.

Doesn't sound like it was a mistake, that's just how they unveiled it lol.
Hm, looks like the podcast wasn't the first it got revealed.

Konami first revealed the news at the retailer-only Destination PlayStation event in Scottsdale, Arizona, along with details of the game's preorder incentive program.

these below
That has more to do with plans changing than him being wrong. They probably weren't planning on a retail release until the demand for it increased.
That was before the demand made them change their minds. A European Brand Manager for Konami called Steven Key spoke to Kojima and really pushed for it when fans started saying they wanted a retail copy of Ground Zeroes on current gen and so it eventually changed.

This game I actually hope doesn't come out until holiday 2015.

Why? I'll literally be playing nothing else. Once MGO hits it's bye bye other games. The other ones I'm interested would not get purchased or back logged till 2016 I'm sure.

You should want it to come early then so you don't need to buy any other games.

In other words, MGSV will save you money.

What would you say if Kojima actually reveals the release date of Final Fantasy XV during Christmas. With all those pictures he had with Nomura.
