That's pretty much what Kojima said.

I'm 100% certain it is.

MGS3 took place in 1964, MGS5 is taking place in 1983. Weird thing is that would only make Ocelot 39, seeing as he was born in 1944.

We see a more robotic looking arm at the end of the trailer, and it's likely he has that until his extended coma when everyone is supposed to think he's dead. The original two Metal Gear (no Solid) games even mention Big Boss having become a cyborg as a result of injuries he received in battle.
Or he lost his arm during whatever put him into the coma. Considering he's shown waking up with a hook-hand...

Actually they already did that one. It was called Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.
