An article by The Guardian accidentally spilled the beans on exactly when you might be able to get your hands on Big Boss’s next adventure, but they were incredibly quick to remove the reference.



That’s an awfully specific release date, considering the potential of it just being something made up by a fan of the franchise. More likely the date was given in private and then ‘accidentally’ published, only to be removed minutes later. The line now reads ‘early 2015,’ although no mention of the gaff has been made.

That's much sooner than I expected if true. I was thinking somewhere around October/November 2015.

I sure hope so. I can wait until March. That would be an awesome Spring release.

Damn, isn't that around when we are expecting Bloodborne as well?

Looks like I know when I'm buying a PS4.

Ground Zeroes released on the March 18, 2014.

Perhaps they confused the dates, and just fucked up. But the 17th of March is a Tuesday in 2015. So that would work out. Hmm.

Yeah, same.

How do we know if this is even reliable ? Why would The Guardian be privy to that information ?

Bloodborne is definitely not coming out in March. Probably April or May.

I'm pretty sure that they already confirmed early 2015 for the release.

At first, I was like "wow, sooner than expected".

But actually, it wouldn't be that strange. Kojima hasn't designed a new MGS game since Peace Walker. That game will be five years old when TPP hits. Hell, it's been seven years since he released MGS4, the last big MGS on consoles. I'm obviously not counting Ground Zeroes (which is part of TPP anyway) and the HD collections.

If it's so soon it means that the announcement is imminent, Gamescom or TGS.
But imo it will be released later, mid-2015 (May/June) like MGS4.

Incredible, if so. Isn't Bloodborne releasing around then? Would be funny if both the Souls successor and Metal Gear got lumped together in March -- again. Anyway, seems early, but feels right the more I think about it.

Thinking of it as a year after Ground Zeroes, almost exactly, I'm pretty sure it was a mistake, and removed because they confused the titles or assumed The Phantom Pain came out precisely a year after.

I don't think the date is right... much sooner than we all expected.

I think around next summer maybe.

Plus we already have so many games in the spring, it would nice to have one big game for the summer which is usually dry.

I hope Ground Zeroes will be a PS Plus / Gold game in February or March then. Konami would be stupid to miss the exposure they would get from that.

I woulda thought the sales for GZ will spike just before TPP, had I not allready played it I know I woulda broke down and bought it before the main event.

if you only play 1 make sure it's MGS 3. Not only is it by far the best, it's the only one set before MGSV so would probably be the most relevant.

Wow. That place brings back memories. Is Leo still running it? He never had contacts with anyone in Konami before but then the site is one of the oldest MG sites around so who knows who Leo has had contact with.

Yeah Leo still runs the site, absolutely love the new layout. He also streams some Metal Gear from time to time.

He hates me for posting this on GAF lol, he said he will get lynched.
