The prologue to Metal Gear Solid V may be ready to release in the spring, but MGSV is not that close to completion.
In an interview with Famitsu magazine, Hideo Kojima explained why Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes will release so much sooner than The Phantom Pain.
If I were to put it in Hollywood movie terms, the prologue, that is Ground Zeroes, would be similar to the first 10-15 minutes that are meant to ‘captivate’ [the audience].
At first, something will happen, then the title will appear like ‘bam!’ and then nine years later, a big event will be the start [of Metal Gear Solid V]. That’s how the story will be connected. As far as the game itself goes, The Phantom Pain will take place in an immense open world map, while Ground Zeroes takes place in a smaller open world.
It would’ve actually been better to release it all at once, 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. That means we would’ve had to make people wait a while longer.
Considering that the PlayStation 4 has already sold 2 million units worldwide, just how much more widespread is Kojima talking about? I suppose he's talking next holiday season at the earliest.
