so when is this game being released?

The very last sentence of the article gives you an answer...

On topic, it's interesting to see Portable Ops being recognized as canon. Wonder what that means for characters like Python and Cunningham. Perhaps some appearance in The Phantom Pain? Kojima doesn't have much choice BUT to recognize it as canon; Gray Fox is Big Boss' most trusted lieutenant and without them having some relationship prior to The Phantom Pain doesn't really match the psychological profile of someone like Big Boss. Trust someone he meets during the course of the game when he's been screwed royally time and time again? Wouldn't make sense, especially following the events of Ground Zeroes. Can't wait to see more!

My super theory, is that release date will be revealed to us at TGS.

Coming 1984=1894
TGS starts on 18.09.2014

would be kojima trolling at its best but i doubt that resellers would just let them do it ^^

maybe for a digital release but i shouldn't mess with my hopes and dreams like that.

Big_Boss88 - "Coming 1984=1894
TGS starts on 18.09.2014"

actually 1894 would translate to 18.9.4 not 14. so 2004 means it came out 10 years ago.

Nothing yet unfortunately. I really hope it's a late 2014 title in December. Imagine how much it can sell as Dec has next to no games.

But Q1 2015 is a more likely date.

Gatsu1501d ago

Lets hope Kojima will finally give the date to us next week :)... almost waited two years for it >.<. I would cry tears of happiness lol if it come this year ;D !

Also I think he is maybe starting to work on Silent Hills soon, so 2 games might be too much of work even for the godlike Kojima.

So Portable Ops happen or not?!

solidboss1501d ago

YES! damn right to include portable ops in the timeline. i will always regard that game as cannon as anyone who played it knows how integral the story was to not only the idea/creation of outer heaven but the motivation that snake/big boss has for it.

Eamon1501d ago

I thought it was always canon. It was how Big Boss gained the funds to start MSF.

crazysapertonight1501d ago

I hope PC version will be better in the way of graphics, because right now this game does not show true potential of Fox Engine

BiggerBoss1501d ago

Phantom Pain has pretty good looking graphics. If you played ground zeroes you know how good it looked. But keep in mind that the Phantom Pain has an open world, whereas PT was a closed in hallway. I don't think Fox Engine will disappoint
