***Update*** The countdown was a major tease. A new animation with rain and a new countdown started at 200 hours. The countdown would stop on the Friday before E3. Also, if you look closely, the site now has the letter E and the numbers 3 and 5 flashing in and out.
At 9pm eastern time today, we will know what Kojima’s next project is all about. Or will we? As of now, many rumors have circled the internet, claiming that this indeed is a teaser page for the upcoming Metal Gear Solid 5 game. Is Kojima really jumping in to MGS5 now? Is Metal Gear Solid 4 history? What about trophy support and the rumored 2 level DLC to be played with Raiden for MGS4? I guarantee that having only 2 levels to be played with Raiden and trophy support would have gamers just as excited as a new Metal Gear Solid 5 game that we probably won’t even see till late 2010. Or is Kojima messing with us? Making us think it’s a Metal Gear Solid game, using the franchise which has pretty much been his bread and butter, and then revealing something unexpected? What ever it is, we will find out in a few via the project’s web site.
