Konami has just posted up a countdown timer on their website. The timer started at 48 hours, and it has been dropping ever since. Whilst there isn't much detail about what the timer is for, it is clear that once the timer is finished, there will be some kind of announcement for Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain.
The timer will end this Wednesday, at which point the announcement will be made. Even though Hideo Kojima and Konami have revealed quite a lot about Metal Gear Solid V, there is still a lot they have kept up their sleeves, so it's hard to guess what the reveal could be for.
We are guessing that the reveal could be quite important though - the 48 hour countdown would be pretty extreme for a small announcement. Some fans of the franchise have suggested that we may see something related to the open world stealth takedowns that were rumored in the past.
Unfortunately, we're not so sure. We're even less sure about where the announcement could take place. This week the Game Developer's Conference is going on, so it could be possible that Hideo Kojima will make a live announcement at GDC.
Otherwise, we may just get some kind of online reveal. What I'm hoping for is a full release date announcement, along with a very important gameplay feature that has yet to be revealed. If you could find out anything about The Phantom Pain what would it be?
