In their latest financial report, Konami talks about their future plan, also giving a possible date for The Phantom Pain.
According to Konami, The Phantom Pain is still in development and depending on how far it takes, it could release either in FY3/2015 or FY3/2016. This could mean that The Phantom Pain will either release in Late 2014/Early 2015 or Late 2015/Early 2016.
Konami has also admitted to Ground Zeroes being short. In a latest PR statement, shared on Facebook, Konami talks about the controversy surrounding the length of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes in a letter to fans.
To our fans:
METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES features a non-linear, open world environment that allows players to choose how to approach each mission. Players can use a variety of tactics, from a run and gun action style to true stealth-ops, to accomplish any one single mission, true to the METAL GEAR SOLID series. With freedom to choose multiple paths, by foot or by vehicle, to dynamic enemy engagement, players are sure to find a deep gameplay experience across a central story mode as well as numerous side-ops missions.
Also, METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES offers a number of additional achievements and unlockable platform-exclusive content for considerable replay value in the true cinematic style and ground-breaking graphics quality that has become the hallmark of Kojima Productions.
Similar to a television series, GROUND ZEROES serves as the first act that will bridge the gap between METAL GEAR SOLID PEACEWALKER, serving as the prologue to the highly anticipated METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN, the second part of the METAL GEAR SOLID V Experience.
KONAMI expresses its confidence that METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES represents an overall excellent experience with its expansive gameplay, replay value, as well as its compelling and deep storyline.
