Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Was Originally PSP/PS3 Title

Konami’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prologue to the events of The Phantom Pain was almost released after Peace Walker (2010), according to Hideo Kojima.

In an interview with Kotaku, Creator and director of Metal Gear series, Hideo Kojima said, “Honestly, I really wanted to release Ground Zeroes right after Peace Walker. Whether on PSP or PS3.

But then we had development issues, some delays with Metal Gear Rising as well. And then we learned about next generation coming, so it ended up being the way it is now.”

He further explains why Ground Zeroes is an standalone title, “Of course it would be ideal to release Ground Zeroes and the main part of the game all together.

But at the same time given that this week we have the next generation of game consoles coming out, a lot of the fans wanted to play something sooner. And given that the main game is a rather big game and still in development, it will take a little bit more time to get it out.

We decided to listen to the fans and put at least the prologue out there so people will get the experience.”

Previously, Ground Zeroes PlayStation exclusive mission revealed.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will release for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in Spring 2014. The PS3 and Xbox 360 boxed versions will retail for £29.99, digital versions for £19.99; PS4 and Xbox One digital version will retail for £29.99.
