A slightly sad day for MGS fans as Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has been pushed back to a summer release (April-June) rather than the previously promised springtime date.

"Konami had initially intended to release Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots this winter and has been working on the production of the title," said Konami Japan.

"Konami has decided to delay the title's release in order to make further improvements to the quality of the game and provide even greater enjoyment for more customers worldwide."

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots is coming exclusively to PS3, keep checking back here for more on the game as we get it.
