Moby Dick Studio’s CEO, Joakim Mogren, emerged from his Swedish exile last night to sit down for an interview with Geoff Keighley of GameTrailers TV. Mogren offered to meet Keighley at a “secret hotel room,” with his face bandaged, to discuss Moby Dick’s first game, The Phantom Pain.
The interview is the opening segment of the episode and it does little to dissuade the Internet detectives who believe The Phantom Pain is just a front for Metal Gear Solid 5. Mogren revealed that he’ll be attending this year’s Game Developers Conference (Hideo Kojima will also be there, by the way) with a brand new Phantom Pain trailer, which he promised “will answer all of your questions.” He then pulled out an iPad to show Keighley a few new screenshots of the game and… dun dun dun… the final two screenshots were tagged with the Fox Engine logo.
Hmm, I guess Kojima’s comments that he only “inspired” The Phantom Pain’s trailer weren’t entirely accurate, now were they?
