Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will most likely be released on September 1 of this year. The date was announced by no other than series creator Hideo Kojima in a video promoting the game.

UPDATE: Konami’s website has revealed that this date only applies to the home console versions of the game. The PC version of The Phantom Pain is set for release on September 15.

The video originally surfaced on IGN Italia’s website and has since been pulled. It was probably supposed to be made available on 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time of March 4. It fits in the timeline of the teaser that’s been running on the MGS5’s website.

Konami hasn’t made any official announcement about the release date of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain since the video has been pulled, but given the fact that the video showed Kojima himself delivering the release date, this release date feels very real. We’ll most likely find out for sure tomorrow.

Of course there’s every possibility that the king of video game trickster is at it again, but probably not. Probably.

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
