If someone asked you to dial a random phone number, what are you gonna do? Not call it and find out what’s on the other end? That’s doubly true if it’s from the creators of Hotline Miami.
+1 (786) 519-3708 ext 10— Hotline Miami (@HotlineMiami) February 2, 2015
We know Hotline Miami 2 isn’t far off, but an official date has eluded us. Or does it? It looks like the phone number in question might hold the secret to when we’ll finally be playing the sequel.
What happens when you call that number? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Listen below: I won’t blame you for not catching everything there. Thankfully, I’ve transcribed it for you:
We are 50 blessings.
Together we march.
Into the future.
You have reached the wrong number.
Maybe I’ll make that my new voice mail, too.
The running theory is that we’ve just been given the release date the bloody action game. If Hotline Miami 2 is coming in early 2015, March fits the timeframe. In the tweet, the extension listed is 10. There’s no option to punch in an extension when you call the phone number, though, so it’s not a leap to wonder if the number is simply part of the larger riddle playing out.
Is Hotline Miami 2 coming out on March 10? Probably.
