The Phantom Pain Promises Imminent News

Set your calendars for Wednesday, March 4th. You can expect some big news for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

On The Phantom Pain‘s official website, Konami has begun a countdown clock that will end on March 4th at 6 A.M. PST (9 A.M. EST). The page teases “Announcement Coming Soon.”

Perhaps not so coincidentally, the clock expires on the 10th anniversary of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater‘s release in Europe.

My Opinion:

I’m sure that I’m not the only one who’s thinking “release date” for this announcement. Still, when it comes to Hideo Kojima, you never know what to expect. This could be yet another stunt to create buzz for the title or it could be the reveal of another barnyard animal hat for Snake to wear while sneaking.
