Hmmph interesting.

Kinda makes sense now.

I thought this was already known. Ground Zeroes is like Virtuous Mission in MGS3:Snake Eater.

They never, ever categorically said it was so, until now. And the fact that they billed MGS:GZ as a standalone game weeks/months before the announcement of MGS:TPP made it pretty confusing and easy to assume it was standalone.

It does make sense that it's the prologue to TPP, but wasn't clear it was so, at all.

This article is from march, 2013. It specifically states that Ground Zeroes is the first portion of the game that is "Metal Gear Solid V". This has been known ever since Kojima first announced that The Phantom Pain was in fact a new Metal Gear Solid game.

Have to reply to your original message to reply to your new one...

Isn't that a pretty recent article? Wasn't the first new about MGS:GZ out late last year? So we were left at least 4-5 months in the dark, assuming it was a new game. You're right though, I did miss that article stating that.

Really hope for a PC version :/

raiden-491056d ago

Well I remember when the ground zeros mission was show kojima said that it was running all on a PC so I would say it very likely.

Upbeat1055d ago

That also happened for alan wake and looked what happened.

Pretty frustrating if you ask me. I was looking forward to MGS:GZ as a smaller, introductory title before TPP, largely to test out the Open World level design, and something to release for 2013.

But nope, we have to wait all the way to 2014 for our next MGS fix. At least they could release GZ as a download-only prologue, similar to Dead Rising 2's little downloadable start-point game. I reckon that would work.
