The lights are on
The most talked about game at this year's Spike Video Game Awards show was The Phantom Pain, a game we were led to believe was being created by new developer Moby Dick Studio.
It didn't take NeoGAF users long to throw on their Sherlock Holmes attire to investigate this new game and its developer. What they found first was Moby Dick Studio's website, which doesn't offer much in terms of content, but does detail the company in its "about" section. Here's what it says:
Moby Dick Studio is a game
developing company operating out of Stockholm, Sweden. Moby Dick Studio
was founded by CEO Joakim Mogren who after years of working for a major
American developer brought together people out of various game studios
from around the Scandinavian area to start something new.
Our goal is to deliver an uncompromising, exciting and touching game experience to people all around the globe.
We will shortly be disclosing information regarding our first major release.
The CEO, Joakim Mogren, has an interesting name. "Joakim" is actually an anagram for "Kojima." Neogaf then dissected the footage, revealing many links to the Metal Gear series, including a scar on the protagonist's face that matches Snake's from Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes. The character emerging from the fire looks a lot like Volgin. The lines above the Phantom Pain logo supposedly also spell out Metal Gear Solid V, if you use the Metal Gear font.
We'll have to wait for confirmation to know for sure, but I have a feeling Neogaf uncovered the truth behind this game. My guess: It'll be called Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain.
Check out NeoGAF for all of the other hidden secrets in Phantom Pain's trailer.

That is pretty fun, I mean also what is the likelihood of a new developer getting a spot in the VGA's?
I believe this is the second part/real game to the prologue metal gear solid ground zeroes.
Looks insane! I didn't notice that it might be MGS from watching the video!
Oooooooooooo i await further news...
The cuts in the letters spell Metal Gear Solid...
There's a shadowy figure down the hall when they're escaping which is hard to see but it kind of looks like the boss. Also the horse covered in fire that looks like the boss' horse. it could be some kind of boss battle
joakim is a fairly common name in scandinavia.
This has all the marking of Kojima... The hidden subtle things, trying to be sneaky... Everything associated with MGS throughout the years has been this way..
Konami and Kojima either way are bringing down the hammer it looks like... Gamers from stealth to pure action can be entralled with Ground Zeroes, Rising: Revengeance, and this if it turns out to be MGS 5.
Plus the phrase "From Fox, two phantoms were born" form that Ground Zeroes teaser

KONAMI just became my fav video game company
Funny story (well, kinda): when my brother and I were watching the VGAs and this came on, I immediately said it was a new MGS game (I was just super hopeful and there was a dude with eye-patch and mullet), but my brother was all "no way, Big Boss has both his arms, at least at the end of 3 he did". So after that we just speculated what it could be. Soon after we find all kinds of things saying it was MGS all along.
Holy crap, I was thinking the character was/looked like Snake also... so I'm not going crazy.
That trailer was so weird...
