Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will be released in September, according to an IGN Italy video, which also features Hideo Kojima discussing “With Metal Gear Solid 5, I’m finally “closing the loop” on the Metal Gear saga.
The video has since been removed, but an image cap of the date is posted above.
In the video, Kojima suggests this will be his final Metal Gear Solid game.
“With Metal Gear Solid 5, I’m finally closing the loop on that saga,” he said (via Polygon). “In that sense, this will be the final Metal Gear Solid.
“Even if the Metal Gear franchise continues, to me, this is the last Metal Gear.”
After Kojima finishes speaking, the video shows the September 1 release date for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC at the end.
