Is The Phantom Pain A Metal Gear Game? This Guy Might Know But He’s Not Talking.

Kotaku editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo is out in L.A. for the Spike Video Game Awards. And he’s dug up some evidence that appears to support the theory that the mysterious Phantom Pain game is in fact another Metal Gear title.

The moody trailer for The Phantom Pain took everyone by surprised when it aired on Friday night and theories immediately started spinning about what it could portend. Upon seeing the logo, Totilo spoke to the gentleman pictured here about the shirt he was wearing. This conversation happened at a Konami party. Moreover, the mystery man said that he designed the shirts for the Moby Dick dev outfit. When Totilo replied by saying that Moby Dick wasn’t a real studio, Shirt Guy just laughed.

Konami, of course, publishes the Metal Gear games and this man’s presence at a Konami fete could mean that the Phantom Pain trailer could be teasing Ground Zeroes or even Metal Gear Solid 5. Consider, too, these images sent in by tipster Nil Zero. The theory here is that a Metal Gear Solid V logo is lurking in plain sight. Active camo, anyone?

According to Totilo, no one affiliated with Konami is talking. But, then again, maybe they don’t need to.
