Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

It seems that Hideo Kojima has just revealed the release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain via his twitter feed. He was sharing an advertisement for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain in Gamescom Daily. At a normal glance, the screenshot which can be found below does look pretty ordinary but if you zoom in, you will in fact see a release date for the game.

As shown in the image below, the release date is a crystal clear Q4 2014. Could the game be released in such a short duration? Possibly yes, since Kojima has already started working on his next game i.e. Silent Hill S. Another assumption that we can make is that this is simply a mistake in the magazine. But then why would Kojima tweet something that could create a misdirection?

As usual this should be taken a grain of salt but with Kojima you never know. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments section below.

      Dont be scared ..ill hold your hand 😉 I’d guess this is coming out spring 2015 at tbe EARLIEST. Cant wait tho…my fav series kf allllll time..mgs’s story is so effective/relevent.

    • Jorge Chávez Colmenares

      Hold my hand too! I want the game as soon as possible. Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain are the only two reasons I bought a next gen console!

  • Jason Mounce

    I’d be wishful for a 2014 release to play it during Christmas Holidays, but am sure it’s just a placeholder date….

    KonamiCore showed the release date more or less at a point in time when you inputted the Ground Zeroes code you got for pre-ordering the first of the few games that gave you a code for Phantom Pain and it told you ‘Come back in Early 2015 for the launch!’

    Meaning, it’s likely planned Early 2015, Q1 I’d believe rather than Q2.

  • NoNeedToArgue

    it’s always been slated for this year i believe.

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    IF this is true, I’m waiting until its release date to get a PS4 bundle that includes the game. If it’s coming in 2015, I’m just getting the console by itself and then some games.

  • Linda’s Mike

    My best guess built on nothing other than how the industry works, not any concrete evidence from Kojima or Konami, I was thinking they’d eventually announce it coming in February 2015.

    But regardless, it makes sense for it to be soon, not some really distant time like Fall of 2015. They’ve been talking about it too much, it must be nearly done.

    Whenever it comes, they have a day one sale from me over on PS4.
