Metal Gear Solid V Was Initially 'One Whole Release'


Hideo Kojima has revealed that he initially wanted Metal Gear Solid V to be released as one whole package.

Metal Gear Solid V is split up into two parts, Ground Zeroes and the Phantom Pain but was originally planned to be one whole release. In an interview with Famitsu (translated by Siliconera), Mr Kojima stated:

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. However, 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.

We want to offer it for as cheap as possible, so at first we thought about making it as a download only; however, after thinking about people around the world, and how some places don’t have the best connectivity, we’re preparing a physical version.
