Kojima Confirms The Phantom Pain is Metal Gear Solid 5

Watch the 5-minute trailer fresh from GDC right now!

Hideo Kojima has confirmed that the recently teased projects ‘The Phantom Pain’ and ‘Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes’ are actually both part of a new game in the beloved Metal Gear Solid series.

The full title of the next installment is ‘: The Phantom Pain’ and once again stars Solid Snake, looking older and even worse for wear than he did in 4. This sequel is the first title to utilise the stunning FOX engine which makes characters look and animate more realistically than any other engine currently used for gaming purposes. According to series creator Hideo Kojima, Ground Zeroes will act as a prologue set seven years before events in ‘The Phantom Pain’, but both will constitute as part of ′s single-player campaign. Yes we know it’s confusing, but nobody does crazy like Kojima.

Check out the trailer below:

Unfortunately no release date was mentioned regarding Metal Gear Solid 5, but the title will appear on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. We’d suspect the next console from Microsoft and Sony’s PlayStation 4 will get a look-in as well, but don’t quote us on that.
