This is All We Know About Moby Dick Studio, Makers of The Phantom Pain

Kotaku - The Phantom Pain was a world premiere trailer out of left field—not only is that a new series, it's a new studio. Well, to most folks, anyway. Ever heard of Moby Dick Studio? Me either. (Industry, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Moby Dick Studio)

Before anyone says that Kojima is trolling a MGS game, this not true.

Konami can get in serious trouble with the law if they announce a fake game studio that is not registered and get get sued by gamers for misleading them.

Lmao and what jackass is going to do that? Misleading them to what, exactly? Is anyone going to go into depression when they find out it's not a new IP?

No offense. But I think all of this might be going over your head.

How would they get in trouble with the law? and I don't see them getting successfully sued if they did this
I am not saying that it is the MGS game and Kojima was just trolling but I just think what you are saying is not right at all.

Silly Pats fan don't you know every time you get to the SuperBowl the Giants are just going to beat you?

On topic...it's definitely Metal Gear related.

All they would have to do is buy right to the name, it doesn't actually have to exist

i dont think gamers would sue, but i think whatever country this so called game studio is in could sue for tax evasion, and not filling with the appropriate authorities.

No they can't. At least in the us. Company's miss lead in adds and announcements every day hello the cigarette company's have still never admitted to a link between smoking and cancer....

Dude, just sit back a few days and watch this play out. If we're wrong about this, you can laugh at all of us later. I'll even give you a bubble. Promise.

how is it misleading them. Maybe it's called Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain. Maybe Moby Dick was created by Konami to create this game. Technically, that's not misleading at all. It's just not saying "This is metal gear solid.

You're totally right dude, i feel SO disgruntled by this that i'm taking him to court! How dare he build suspense and hype around a title in an era when we know everything about every game 3 years before release!


Seriously though, chill out a little, god forbid he bring some intrigue to an otherwise Mountain Dew filled mainstream media event.

It's almost confirmed to be MGS & Kojima related game, though not sure if it's Ground Zeroes or some other title.

Joakim = Kojima.
Reibooi  +   1030d ago
I'm betting whatever it is it's Project Ogre. If Project Ogre is in some way related to MGS I have no idea but it seems like a given.

In a way I kinda hope it doesn't turn out to be MGS related because what was shown looked awesome and could be it's own game easily but knowing Kojima it could just as easily be something from MGS. I really just want concrete info on what the hell it is.
exsturminator01  +   1030d ago
Yeah, I was super excited for this before everyone started saying it was a Kojima troll. Now its just, "oh, more MGS...okay..."
alster23  +   1030d ago
Im kinda bummed out thought. I was really hoping it was a new IP. I was really excited too especially how it was set up.
exsturminator01  +   1030d ago
Right there with you. Thought it looked spectacular, then heard it might be Kojima and had to write it off as more of the same.
showtimefolks  +   1030d ago
i thought the trailer had something to do with aMGS
KMCROC  +   1030d ago
It looks interesting may buy just for the fact it's a new IP & new studio.
Ares90  +   1030d ago
I bought it at first, but now the clues are overwhelming!
Onehandband1t  +   1030d ago
This game regardless is built on FOX engine, You can tell after watching the latest metal gear trailer. Also to note (All the sceptics) at the very end of the trailer, am I right in saying that there is someone floating up in the air? Looks like Psycho Mantis?

Also to note http://metalgear.wikia.com/... read this bio and tell me that this don't sound familier to the trailer, fire, russia etc

I can't imagine why someone wouldn't see this as a Metal Gear (either Ground Heroes or a new one)

No one notice that ogre is right in the middle of the CEOs last name...
vallencer  +   1030d ago
I don't know why everyone insist on this being a MGS game. He said recently be doesn't want to be known as just the metal gear guy. Also he has done other games like zone of the Enders. Yes you could be right but I think it's something new entirely. Since when would metal gear have giant whales and unicorns in it? Even if that was all in his "coma" it doesn't make sense. I'm also very aware that the MGS stories are odd but they aren't THAT odd.
spicelicka  +   1030d ago
As soon as they showed his face close up i felt like it was MGS related.
