When The Phantom Pain was announced, one thought was on everyone's mind: it's gotta be Metal Gear related, and "Joakim Mogren," the CEO at Moby Dick studios, is really just Kojima. Evidence seemed to point that way, anyway. So who is this dude?

The picture comes from a tweet from Geoff Keighley.

Amazing. If it's not obvious, "Joakim's" bandages are a shout-out to the protagonist in the trailer, who is also bandaged. It also means we still don't quite know who Joakim is.

What do you think? Just Moby Dick studios being silly, or is this an elaborate, if not playful ruse to get us to believe that no, really guys. It's not Metal Gear Solid?

Anyone else getting tired of this JJ Abrams-level secrecy?

We KNOW it's Metal Gear, drop the bullshit, it's not cute anymore.
