If I missed a speculation thrrad about Black Hound, Kojima's latest "real" game, forgive me. What follows is copied from user ErichVonStalhein on the MGS subreddit as of time of posting.
...As interest in this has snowballed, one thing has become increasingly clear. Either this is an official Kojima Ruse Cruise. Or whoever has set this up has been incredibly diligent and very lucky.

[For] your sanity, the source code of ingsoc.org indicates the timer ends at 4:20pm PST, meaning 5:20pm PDT - current Los Angeles time - on the 11th September.
Below is a copy-paste of my original theory concerning additional content for Metal Gear Solid 5. As of about 35 minutes ago, Hideo Kojima posted this image to his Twitter account, confirming the connections (1984, 9/11 - for the latter, check the track number, bottom-right of Hideo's music player) that I had previously laid out:
Original theory post:
On the 11th September 2015, there will be a major announcement regarding Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Here's why.
TPP is set in 1984. The year that gives its name to Orwell's dystopian masterpiece. The main method of control by Big Brother - the British Government - of Orwell's novel, is Newspeak. A revised version of English used to instill the government's ideology into the populace. A primary theme within The Phantom Pain.
The party that controls the government in Orwell's novel is called "Ingsoc" (for English National Socialism). A website set up earlier this year (ingsoc.org) teases an undisclosed game called "Blackhound." The initial site had "A ##### ###### Game" as its infobar. The hashes match "Hideo Kojima" for character count, and the phrase is "his" go-to phrase.
The ingsoc.org site now has a timer set to run out on the 11th September (an odd date to announce an entertainment product on). If you watch the "deleted" (read: red herring) Mission 51 footage, you'll find at the very end a long shot of Manhattan, with the Statue of Liberty on the left, and the Twin Towers (yes, those towers) on the right. Eli says: "Not yet. It's not over yet." And then we get a "HIDEO KOJIMA" in the middle of the screen. An odd message for him to leave at the end of his final MGS game, if that were intended as the final scene.
@Ken1555 simply types " ? " in response to being asked if ingsoc.org is MGSV related. Obviously, he can't say: "Yes." But then, why didn't he just say: "No"? There's only one good answer to that: because he doesn't want us to stop speculating. And why would he not want us to stop? Presumably because we're the slow-building start of the internet hype for 9/11.
But wait, there's more.
Remember how Kojima said that between GZ and TPP, he'd do something "you can only do with videogames"? Well, technically, videogames are the only medium where it is possible to send out major post-release updates.
If you release an extra part to a book, that's just another book (or another "volume"). If you release an extra part to a film, that's just another film (or worse, a Director's Cut where some people will continue to insist on the original as the "definitive" version). But if you release additional content to a game? That's a ptch, and is instanlty absorbed into the singular, unified product. That's something unique to videogames. Releasing one version of a work, and then releasing another version, without the second version being considered "separate" to the first.
But the ride doesn't even end there.
MGSV is called, "The Phantom Pain", and Kojima has done the unthinkable, and created something like a phantom pain amongst his audience. The deep and gripping sensation that they can feel something, even though it isn't there. Taking advantage of that which only videogames as a medium can do - patching - made it possible for Kojima to simulate a phantom pain in his audience.
What better way to out-do his own reputation as completely and utterly off his rocker? MGS2 saw the bulk of the game, in which you play a totally different character, hidden from the world before release. MGSV hasn't hidden it's bulk: it hasn't even turned up with it. Think about it: Kojima will go down in the history of this medium, as possibly its first auteur, and a move as bold as this will seal it for him.
Moreover, all this is entirely consistent with all extant material in Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain. Including if you take Mission 51 as canon content. After all, 51 hardly answers any questions, that much is obvious. There's a glaring hole in MGSV: the hole formed by the absence of any content in which you play as Big Boss himself.
And guess what? My money is on Big Boss himself as Blackhound. The black leather jacket-wearing, ever-present yet never-present "member" of Diamond Dogs, who is merely glimpsed in the "true ending" of the current MGSV.
The 11th September will bring the second "part" of MGSV:TPP into the limelight. The Phantom Pain's many references to Orwell's 1984 (its year, themes, and nods such as the posters) secure the connection between it and the ingsoc.org website, whose connection to Kojima and MGS (check "/countdown/new_toy_01.webm") are equally assured. The final extant scene of MGSV connects with the countdown date for ingsoc.org (a date otherwise bizarre to announce an entertainment product upon) complete with a major character fourth-wall breaking into heavy hinting that there is more to the work. The name of the to-be-announced product is also highly compatible with the most likely form that an extension to MGSV would take.
Quod erat demonstrandum.
Things have moved quickly haven't they? Between Kojima's letting slip of "1984" and its position as the 9/11 track, and then Ken mysteriously responding to a query about our little throng here with a mere: "?" On top of all that, there's another Twitter account which, so I am led to believe (I'll let you dig, if you think this matters in particular) is an official marketing account, that just very recently came out with this in response to the queries directed at Ken:
@gray_xof "Little boys shouldn't be playing God for things they know nothing of :)" (https://twitter.com/GRAY_XOF)
The gray_xof twitter account also has its tagline set to "its not over yet". The account hasn't been active, until now, since back in late August before MGSV's release. Make of it what you will.
In other news, I believe I have a potential solution for the infobox cipher on Blackhound's website. Ignoring the "DECODE INGSOC" lines, which are Newspeak/English, and ignoring the giant "X", one can competently produce the following deciphered text:
LOS YOLLXRZ goes to RED HERRING (which refers to the central text of the image, which is very prominent compared to the next piece of text, which is very well-hidden):
KJIRS NB CQL YQHRS goes to STAND BY FOX H.O.U.N.D.
A poster on a certain clover-related messageboard also turned up the fact that there is in fact a drinking establishment called "The Black Hound" very, very close to the real Ground Zero - what is now the 9/11 memorial.
Some of you may be aware of a youtube channel called ProjectOmega567ch. I haven't really mentioned it before, because I was by no means convinced that it was in any way official, and I was too interested in the epistemic restrictions on the maker of the ingsoc.org website. However, there is one thing that is undeniably fascinating about this youtube channel. Over the course of the last few years, it has uploaded many videos. Each has a description of just a word or two. If one assembles these descriptions in chronological order, you get this:
code talker the truth is lying don't believe the third line Heed our warning. you are just part of their game of absolute endgame for complete control over entire global dominance this is the only option for mankind to be whole again
And for those who are wondering... the words CODE TALKER are dated through videos of September 12th and 14th of 2013 respectively. I don't know myself whether this predates public announcement of Code Talker's character and name. But if it does, this is proof that the channel has insider information from KojiPro, and can be considered a valid source, like ingsoc.org.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I maintain that there is one key point that is troubling from a purely rational perspective. If the ingsoc.org site is fake, then how did its creator know to hardcode his timer many, many months ago? One can only conclude that, if this is not a Hideo Kojima Ruse(tm), then whoever did set it up got very, very lucky indeed.
Holy shit. If this isn't just a dlc announcement, this is the craziest stunt anyone has ever done with a multimillion commercial product.
