It didn't take long for various message boards to start picking apart the trailer, and people quickly questioned what they saw. For starters, the Swedish developer, Moby Dick Studio, has never been heard of previous to this trailer, and the only online presence the studio has is its own website which was created on November 19th of this year.

Secondly, the studio's founder is Joakim Mogren. Joakim is an anagram for 'Kojima', as in Hideo Kojima, the brains behind the Metal Gear series.

The hospitalized character in the trailer also looks like Snake, and many think the man in flames looks like Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater‘s Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin. There's a few other circumstantial clues that you may have spotted throughout the trailer. It's also worth noting that during the VGA pre-show, Geoff Keighley hinted that one of the trailers shown would be "cryptic" and requiring the viewers to figure it out, and everything else during the show was very straightforward.

All but confirming Konami's master trolling is the fact that two "Moby Dick Studio employees" were spotted and photographed at a Konami VGA after-party in The Phantom Pain t-shirts.
