Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Will Not Be Playable At TGS

by Dean James


Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is easily one of the most anticipated upcoming games, especially after the release of the prequel Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes earlier this year. With a release expected for spring 2015 by most, many though there was a good chance that the game would be playable at TGS later this month. However, it doesn’t appear that will be the case.

During the pre-TGS SCE Japan conference the other day, Hideo Kojima said the game would definitely have a presence, but Konami has now revealed further details about what we can expect. Rather than the game being playable on the floor, Konami revealed that they will hold a stage presentation for the game as well as show a new video of the game.

Luckily, a Konami representative on NeoGAF confirmed that we would be seeing something else other than Afghanistan this time, so expect to see something new this time around. The Tokyo Game Show will be held from September 18 through September 21, so we have less than two weeks to go until we get to see the new footage.

With a lack of a playable version at TGS, do you think this might mean the game is further away than we previously thought? Feel free to weigh in through the comments below.
