Possible The Phantom Pain details leaked by employee
An anonymous poster on 4chan is claiming to be 1 of 20 employee’s at the Konami California branch that has been fired and is now answering questions about the game. He claims to be an MGS fan and therefore will not spoil the ending.
Leaker claims that the game is 80% finished and AI had a lot to due with the game being delayed. The release date will be announced at TGS 2014.
Keep in mind these are not official informations, and therefore are not necessarily true.

Researchers develop MGS4 Octocamo in real life
Inspired by the natural system, researchers from the University of Houston and the University of Illinois developed a flexible material capable of sensing and responding to its surroundings. The researchers put this new material to the test and found that it could adapt to changing patterns of light within 1 to 2 seconds, producing matching black-and-white patterns without user input. Check out a demonstration here:
While the system is pretty inefficient at the moment and restricted to black-and-white, the researchers believe it could be improved by adapting the existing technology, for example through the incorporation of solar cells. They could also exchange the dye for a substance that is able to offer a wider range of colors.
While the research may have been funded by the Office of Naval Research, the scientists believe that the potential uses of artificial systems such as this extend far beyond the military, for example color-changing fabrics for fashion and interior design. However, lead researcher Prof John Rogers stressed to the BBC that while these ideas may seem cool, the team are focusing their efforts on the engineering side, rather than color-changing wallpaper.
