Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain may be some way off from release says Hideo Kojima

Kojima warns that The Phantom Pain will take a while to complete

Hideo Kojima has explained that the main portion of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain may not be released for some time yet.

Konami recently announced that the Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be released next spring on current and next-gen systems, however this is only a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

“It would’ve actually been better to release it all at once,” Kojima-san began, “but by the way things are going, it appears likely that Phantom Pain will be coming out around the time the PlayStation 4 becomes more spread out.” Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain may be some way off from release says Hideo Kojima

He went on, “That means we would’ve had to make people wait a while longer. [MGS V] The Phantom Pain has enormous volume, so it will require much more time. So, together with the marketing staff, we consulted ‘what ifs’ and such, and came to the decision of allowing fans to at least play the prologue, ahead of time.”
