Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Release Date Seems to be Leaked
Konami’s surprise announcement for tomorrow has been leaked ahead and it does reveal the release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
According to a NeoGAF user who came across a couple of video interviews with series creator Hideo Kojima on IGN’s servers, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release worldwide on September 1, 2015.
The developer also stated in one interview that this will be his final Metal Gear Solid game. The same has been said by him in the past as well, but Kojima somehow always returns – which probably has a lot to do with his love for the franchise.
“I always say this will be my last Metal Gear, but the games in the series that I’ve personally produced – Metal on MSX, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 1, 2, 3, 4 and Peace Walker – and now Metal Gear Solid 5 constitute a single Metal Gear saga,” he said. “With Metal Gear Solid 5 I’m finally closing the loop on that saga. In that sense, this will be the final Metal Gear Solid. To me, this is the last Metal Gear.”
Only time will tell if Konami is really done with the Metal Gear series.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is in development for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Kojima is trying his best to make this game the perfect installment in the series.
