Metal Gear Solid 5: Producer Responds To Secret Chapter Questions As Fans Rally To “Unlock” It

Reddit seems to think they’ve cracked at least some of the code in The Phantom Pain.

Since Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain was released, there has been quite a few questions about some supposed secret content that can apparently be unlocked. Members of the development team have been hinting at a secret chapter’s existence, while other members are remaining steadfastly tight lipped. That has only led to fans working harder than ever to try and figure out just what’s going on.

Directly asking producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi about the new content certainly isn’t the answer. Twitter users recently asked him if he could give them any hint at all about where this content is located and how to unlock it. He first answered no comment, and then said he “couldn’t tell” us. Both of those answers seem to indicate there is something out there, but he’s not going to give us a map to find it. Luckily, there are plenty of resourceful Reddit users out there that are on the case.

A thread has been dedicated to finding out just where this secret chapter went, as well as why it went missing at all. As the Reddit thread points out [there is even a whole sub reddit dedicated to the cause], it seems like people would have been able to find it by datamining the PC version of Phantom Pain. The OP posits that part of the reason the PC version’s release date got moved up is because all references to this secret missions were removed. Those who have been following the development of the game have noted that the computer version was originally supposed to come out two weeks after the console version.

This has led to people thinking the secret chapter i.e. Chapter 3 titled Peace has been expertly buried and is just waiting to be dug up. The lack of flat-out denials seems to be a hint. The lack of confirmation appears to, strangely be one as well. We’ll just have to wait and see if someone can find the elusive missing content in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

We will see how it all pans out. Regardless, The Phantom Pain is one of the year’s best game.

    I have been a MGS fan for over 10 years now, I’m a junior… But this stuff… Is making my head pop out any time I think about it… Mission 51 ? Why wasn’t it complete ?!!! ANSWER ME, KONAMI !!!!

    • WitWolfy

      Konami: It isnt finished because screw you, thats why…

      Either way the game had a great ending that linked all the games together very well. We all know the game wouldn’t have everything Kojima wanted to put into it because of the ordeal, at least he still managed to make one of the greatest games of all time.

    • RinceThat

      The ending is Phantom 😛
      That was a joke, I have not finished it yet…

    • Limit Break

      He-he-he… You have no idea how right you are.

    Why does it say that Twitter user does not exist? Is this a fake article to get attention?

  • Razma

    yeah and im still waiting on the secret mass effect 3 ending where shepard wakes up

  • ciclamaino

    21 sep Peace day….

  • RinceThat

    Mission 45 was good enough for me, Im not bothered doing 47 yet. Also, why is everybody going nuts about the end? We all know what happens as this game is explained in MGS 1. Just nice to see how Phsyco Mantis and Liquid Snake came to be, and what event made Big Boss turn.

    Its also very obvious from the first hour of the game that the clones of Big Boss are already running around. “I am you and you are me” is what the bandaged Big Boss said.

    Quiets ending was FANTASTIC.

    If Konami cut content for future DLC then so be it. It will sell regardless.

    • chiffmonkey

      Because 46 turns everything on its head

    • RinceThat

      I kind thought its going that way after I unlocked PAZs ending after giving her the 10th photo. Mmmmm… now Im intrigued.

  • Andrew Black

    Either way out of my 25 years of playing games (MG series included) this is possibly the best game of all time. The end of the game had me grinning wide all the way through.

    • RinceThat

      Nice, as a casual MGS gamer who never really took the lore seriously I found myself face palming a few times when 2 and 2 came together. I also grinned a few times.

      As a Witcher believer it was hard for me to admit, but MGSV takes the GOTY award hands down.

      100hours at 66% and I am still looking forward to jump into the most polished sandbox of all time.

    • matt

      its so much fun, as long as it is once i was done i felt like i had just started! so much to still develop and build, i hadn’t even tried alot of stuff

    • Brandon Cobb

      Simply put, and well said. If this chapter 3 rumor indeed proves to be true, then I think we may have experienced the beginning of a new generation of games unfolding stories in such a matter.

    • tommy bone

      I am not a huge Metal Gear Solid fanatic. I have played most of the previous MGS games, but haven’t really been passionate about them.

      I purchased this game almost as an after thought.

      But after playing for over 2 weeks nonstop, I have to say this is probably one of the best games I have ever played in my life.

    • Andrew Black

      Agreed and I’ve been a fan of the Witcher games since the original, but MGSV takes the cake which is truly impressive. I finished the game at 86% and I’m still going strong on trying to get 100% lol

    • tommy bone

      I am at 33% complete and still playing hours every single day. I should have been “bored” by now but am not. I don’t know what it is about this game, but everything just seems to flow and fit together so well. The mechanics, the story line, the buddy system (I have Quiet, love her). I never get tired of that ‘rush’ of trying to complete missions and side missions without being spotted.

  • Cricinator

    A secret chapter, if this turns out to be true I’ll erase my 9.9 I gave the game and crank it up to 11.

  • TheBeauJOB

    I wonder if ground zeroes got secretly updated and might find something there. If chapter 3 is actually in the game and we have to unlock it, then kojima did some 4th wall breaking to hide it.

  • Sp00ks Pls

    He can’t tell you because it doesn’t exist. Datamining > Someone from Konam
