[UPDATE] Konami has confirmed to IGN that The 1984 Collection is a clothing line, not a new video game.

The original story is below.

Japanese publisher Konami--a regular newsmaker of late--on Tuesday announced something called Metal Gear Solid: The 1984 Collection.

The company shared the image you see below through its social channels, using the caption: "Step back into the 80's with our new MGS collection coming very soon! Stay tuned!"

Konami did not share any further information about what The 1984 Collection might be. Some fans are speculating that it could be a bundle of remastered Metal Gear Solid games, while others take the "Collection" description to suggest this is something other than a game project.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain also takes place in 1984.

Others still have pointed out how The 1984 Collection's logo very closely resembles that of Ubisoft's Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, featuring similar fonts, color patters, and grid background.

We'll bring you new details on The 1984 Collection as they become available. But for now, what do you hope it is? Let us know in the comments below.

The next game in the Metal Gear Solid series is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which comes to console and PC in September. Series creator Hideo Kojima will reportedly leave Konami after that project is out the door, as a result of an apparent power struggle with Konami.
