Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain Out in Fiscal Year Ending March 2015 – Analyst
Konami could also release a “smaller” Metal Gear this year.
Senior research analyst David Gibson has recently stated via Twitter that Konami has a “smaller” Metal Gear game planned for this year, while Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain wouldn’t be out till the fiscal year ending Marc 2015.
When Metal Gear Solid V was first announced, it first went by the name Ground Zeroes before The Phantom Pain title surfaced. At one point they were two separate games, then two segments within the same game, and then two separate games again. Gibson’s tweet seems to indicate that the “Ground Zeroes” title, which dropped off the radar when Metal Gear Solid V was officially subtitled “The Phantom Pain”, may still be around.
Or it could be something else entirely like a sequel to Metal Gear Rising that had Raiden as the protagonist. Anything is really possible at this point and Kojima loves shocking the fans. Maybe we’ll hear more at this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, scheduled to take place from August 21st to 25th.
