Looks Like There Won’t Be Any DLC For Metal Gear Solid V

by William Schwartz


Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain released earlier this month to critical acclaim. Hideo Kojima’s final Metal Gear game has been met with overwhelming adulation, with many calling it the best in the series (we loved it, too). However, not everyone who has completed the game is satisfied, with many fans disgruntled at the story’s lack of closure. Those who have finished the game have found that several story threads are left hanging, with many mysteries about Big Boss still left unresolved.  This has resulted in some fans calling for a third chapter, to allow Kojima to truly complete the story and close the book on the Metal Gear series.

“I don’t have any particular story content to announce, no.”

Unfortunately, no DLC for the game is currently in place. That’s according to Konami’s community manager, Robert Allen Peeler, who responded to fan questions on twitter.

“I don’t have any particular story content to announce, no,” was Peeler’s response to a fan who questioned him about the existence of any form of downloadable story content. It’s unfortunate, but DLC was always unlikely, with the news that Kojima Productions was disbanding following MGS V’s release, as well as recent reports that claim that Konami are to pull out of the AAA console space almost entirely.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
