Metal Gear Solid: announced for next week?

Metal Gear Solid

A tweet on Metal Gear Solid's official Twitter account is currently causing some speculation among fans. In a response to Tom Olsen - another curious profile related to Metal Gear - it said that several visitors are expected next week. The picture shows the computer room from Metal Gear Solid 2. Fans believe there could be more to it.

There have been rumors of a supposed remake of Metal Gear Solid in the past. Because the picture shows a location from part 2 of the series, fans can also imagine a new edition of Sons of Liberty. However, we do not know whether this will happen. Next week at the latest, we will also find out whether there is actually more behind the tweet of the Metal Gear Solid account. Followers are also currently wondering what the curious profile of the fictional person Tom Olsen is all about.

The account posted its first tweet on April 8, 2021 and pretends to be an employee on Big Shell - the main venue of Metal Gear Solid 2. Tom Olsen himself only follows the Twitter profiles of Metal Gear Solid, Hideo Kojima, Konami and the New York Mets. For the past few days, he has been sharing pictures of his work place regularly. On April 30th, he celebrates his birthday - here too, fans now believe in a possible announcement. Until there is an official announcement, these rumors should be treated with the greatest caution.

Is a New Metal Gear Solid Announcement Being Teased?

Is there a new announcement related to the Metal Gear Solid franchise coming up soon? That's the question that many fans have started asking after a series of strange posts have started to come about on social media. At this point in time, we're not certain if the posts in question are meant to be teasing something greater though or if they're just meant to be for fun.

Seen on Twitter recently, the official Metal Gear account began interacting with another account that goes by the alias Tom Olsen. The account ran under this moniker is meant to be one from the perspective of a character that works at the Big Shell, which is the primary location seen in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. This Tom Olsen account has strangely only been around since April of 2021 and all that it does is tweet out images from MGS2. What made many fans begin questioning whether or not something greater could be at hand was when the official Metal Gear account tweeted out a response.

In a recent quote tweet, the Metal Gear Twitter page shared one of the posts from the Tom Olsen page saying that 'visitors' of some sort are coming next week. Many fans of Metal Gear Solid took this as the potential tease that some sort of announcement could be coming in the next few days related to the franchise.

At this point in time, there's still quite a bit that we don't know about. What's perhaps most intriguing involves the Tom Olsen account itself. Based on the pattern from the account, it seems as though it could be a page that is run by those over at Konami. This is just my own hypothesis, but you usually don't see fan accounts posting vague tweets in the manner that this one has been. As such, I'm inclined to believe it's a sort of marketing tool that Konami could be using to lead up to a new Metal Gear Solid reveal of some sort. But that could very well be wrong.

If there is an announcement of any kind to be had though, it would seem that it may involve Metal Gear Solid 2 specifically. What that new reveal would result in remains to be seen, but we'll continue to follow this situation and let you know if there are any new developments.

So what do you think about this situation? Do you think we're due to hear something new about Metal Gear Solid soon? Let me know your thoughts either down in the comments or over on Twitter at @MooreMan12.
