The Phantom Pain will see a full unveiling at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco later this month, Joakim Mogren, the supposed CEO of supposed game development studio Moby Dick, has confirmed.
“Yes, I plan on attending this show [GDC] coming up in San Francisco, but I don’t have anything to show today, unfortunately,” said Mogren on tonight’s episode of GameTrailers TV. “This year’s GDC show, I will have a new Phantom Pain trailer, and I can confirm that it will answer all of your questions.”
Asked if the game is a next generation one, Mogren said, “Unfortunately, I cannot confirm that.” Pressed if Moby Dick has next generation developer kits, he said he could not confirm that either.
Mogren then showed host Geoff Keighley a few new concept arts and screenshots on his iPad, which featured a FOX Engine logo in the lower right corner.
The Phantom Pain is widely believed to be a new Metal Gear game. Reasons for this include: 1) Joakim is an anagram for Kojima (the creator of Metal Gear), 2) there are several references to Metal Gear in the trailer, and 3) tonight’s FOX Engine reveal (FOX Engine is Kojima Productions’ engine).
