A new bug has been discovered in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain that affects those with multiple SEN accounts attached to their PlayStation 4 consoles.


As reported by Gamespot, Konami has revealed that it was notified of a new save bug in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

The bug affects users with multiple Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) accounts. For instance, if you and your partner play the same copy of the game using different PSN accounts, this save file issue could occur.

“This save data cannot be used, as the relevant downloadable content was not found” is what the error says when users try to resume the game.

Konami said it’s working on finding a fix and recommended using a single account in the meantime.


Recently, Konami fixed a bug which would halt the game’s progress for some players if they used Quiet on certain missions.
