Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain laat op zich wachten

Helaas zal Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain nog even op zich laten wachten. Kojima heeft dit bekend gemaakt in Famitsu. De game laat zo lang op zich wachten doordat het een spel is van enorme omvang.

The Phantom Pain has enormous volume, so it will require much more time. So, together with the marketing staff, we consulted ‘what ifs’ and such, and came to the decision of allowing fans to at least play the prologue, ahead of time. We want to offer it for as cheap as possible, so at first we thought about making it as a download only; however, after thinking about people around the world, and how some places don’t have the best connectivity, we’re preparing a physical version.

Het zou dus zomaar kunnen dat The Phantom Pain niet in 2014 of zelfs niet in 2015 verschijnt. Ground Zeroes, het proloog van Metal Gear Solid V, zal wel op korte termijn speelbaar zijn. Hier laat hij het volgende over los:

If I were to put it in Hollywood movie terms, the prologue, that is Ground Zeroes, would be similar to the first 10-15 minutes that are meant to ‘captivate’ the audience. At first, something will happen, then the title will appear like ‘bam!’ and then nine years later, a big event will be the start of Metal Gear Solid V. That’s how the story will be connected.
