Hold Up, Ground Zeroes And The Phantom Pain Aren’t The Same Game Now?
You can count me as one of the people that is now royally confused with the whole Metal Gear Solid 5 situation right now. Yesterday Kojima stated during a panel at GDC that Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain were in fact one game, which so happened to be Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. Now a Konami representative has said something completely different.
Speaking to Gamespot, the representative explained that the two titles are still two different games.

“Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are two separate games. Ground Zeroes will actually be a prologue to The Phantom Pain, and that’s all we can share at this time.”
This goes against what Hideo Kojima said on stage, in a way. While he did state that Ground Zeroes serves as a prequel to The Phantom Pain, showing players how Snake ends up in a nine year coma, there was no indication that they would be completely separate titles. Or maybe everyone just jumped the gun a little and assumed they would be one game.
But what does that mean for Metal Gear Solid 5? Will Ground Zeroes release way before and act as a short prequel, or will the two games be bundled together. Is this just a case of the English language getting in the way of what developers actually mean by “two different games”?
No one really seems to know at the moment, but it shouldn’t be long before all of this is cleared up. Stay tuned.
