    Whenever Kojima hypes people it ends up being nothing.

    Clothing lines and a chicken hat.

    Just a few days after the debut of Metal Gear Scanlon 3, they have a Phantom Pain announcement? A conspiracy by the La-li-lu-le-lo and Giant Bomb? You better believe it. Hopefully it's not that chicken cap again, though I guess you can never tell when you're dealing with Trolljima.

    While it's likely to be the release date, it's also not official that they're going to announce the date. They could just be putting out another trailer.

    Actually it'll probably just be another countdown. That's what they like to do over at Kojipro.

    Probably the announcement of the multiplayer OB. Or registrations for a closed beta.

    Or probably some Seiko-branded watch.

    I hope it's a release date but we in no way know that is what is going to be announced. Title is misleading.

    That's exactly what I was thinking as well, but he has said that a release date will be announced soon.

    Could be a beta for all I know, but "announcing release date soon" and then doing something else is just odd. I'll clean up the title just to not be a jerk.

    I pressed the Phantom Cigar button and thought it'd bypass the whole thing, but no. Was kinda funny though.

    I too hope it's out on PC and console at the same time. Gonna be hard to dodge those spoilers I think.

    Made a modification to the post. Neogaf found code that specifically mentions the release date when the countdown is finished.

    A countdown timer to another countdown timer. Maybe a new trailer of Big Boss drinking New Coke. Probably the beta for Metal Gear Online. I want to know if the boots made by Puma will be sold in the U.S. They look badass.

    It's definitely not PS4 exclusive. I mean they've been taking pre-orders for all consoles for at least two years now.

    The big news is probably a release date and an announcement that all of the super cool awesome collectors editions are Japan exclusive, just like they did with Ground Zeroes. I want my puma jacket, damnit...

    Also, one day and two hours left.
