Metal Gear Solid V is Project Ogre

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Project Ogre are one and the same thing. Kojima confirmed this in an interview held during E3. (Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Project Ogre, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

So that whole "new IP with interconnectivity between PS3 and Vita" schtick from 2011 WAS a lie...

Maybe that were his original plans, but they changed over the years. MGSV still has connectivity with mobile devices, maybe that's what is has changed into. Vita might be supported as well, but we haven't heard anything about it so far.

I'm gonna be honest, I think Kojima just didn't have the balls to try something new, so he just went back to MGS....because he knew everyone was familiar with it, and he obviously knows that everyone is going to buy it regardless, just on its name alone...

Actually in an interview with a Spanish website, Kojima said that MGSV was always Project Ogre.

I think it's still possible that vita will play MGSV in the go but with gaikai :)

I have a feeling the taboo subject the game covers are to do with child soldiers.
Donnieboi  +   735d ago
Yeah it's getting kinda obvious, especially since Kojima has said that repeatedly. Also, the latest trailer shows it too.

Here's an idea...

Don't give your new game five different names. That's the dumbest thing I've seen Kojima do.

I guess project ogre shifted into mgs5, unless the guy in the 2011 project ogre pic is young snake.
