Kojima Explains Why MGSV: Ground Zeroes Will Be Separate From MGSV: The Phantom Pain

MGSV

In a recent interview that Hideo Kojima did with the PlayStation Blog, he talked about his two upcoming games in the Metal Gear Solid series and why he chose to do them as separate as opposed to lumping them both together into one.

The two games that they talk about is the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and its prologue Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Ground Zeroes is the direct sequel to Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, which is set in the year 1975, and follows the lines of Peace Walker’s Vietman War Era. Snake ventures out on a covert mission in search of a cohort that winds up missing after a rescue attempt that goes very wrong. For a rundown of the story line in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, visit Konami’s website.

In the interview with PlayStation Blog, Kojima stated the following, explaining a bit about his decision to split the game into two:

To release them together would be an ideal case for us. But Metal Gear Solid 5 is going to be a huge, a massive scale game. So the development is taking some time. That said, PS4 is launching now and it’s big. A lot of people have been asking for a new Metal Gear Solid experience, so we at least wanted to release a prologue so that people get to know what people will be, experience a chunk of the story. So that guided our decision to move forward at this time.

We can expect to see Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes sometime next year in the spring, the game will release for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

What do you think? Should the games have been released together, or do you agree with Kojima’s decision to release one before the other?
