At the recent GDC, Hideo Kojima took the covers off the Metal Gear Solid V trailer and released it onto the world. But despite Kojima being on hand for the proceedings, there was still confusion with fans thinking that The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes were one and the same.
Today the issue was cleared up with the announcement that the two titles are in fact two separate games. Jay Boor, Konami’s Director of Public Relations, had the following to say, “Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are two separate games. GZ will be a prologue to The Phantom Pain.” When he was pressed further about the platforms they’d be appearing on, he reaming tightlipped regarding Ground Zeroes. However he did reveal that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is “definitely 360 and PS3.”
