Konami has published a 48-hour countdown clock on its Metal Gear Solid 5 website, implying that the publisher is ready to make a significant announcement regarding the game.

For now, Konami has left no clear indication with regards to what the announcement could be. However, the Metal Gear Solid 5 release date remains a key detail yet to be disclosed, making it a frontrunner among other possibilities.

The Seiko countdown timer suggests that the announcement will be made on Wednesday, March 4, at 6am Pacific Time (2pm UK).

In September at the Tokyo Games Show, series creator Hideo Kojima set broad launch timings for MGSV, stating that the project was scheduled to ship at some stage in 2015.

A string of details have emerged since, such as the reveal of the game's multiplayer component in December.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain has been listed by GameSpot as one of the most anticipated titles of 2015.
