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.

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.

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.

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.

Really hope it's true, would make a great birthday present

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.

Shit, that means I need to beat MGS 2-4 and Ground Zeroes before then.
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.

If nothing gets delay 2015 will be the biggest since 2007, until than we have to deal with 2014 where a Remaster is one of its biggest releases :)

MetalGear.net is still active?!

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.
