10 Exciting Metal Gear Solid 5 Details

Now that E3 2015 is over and done with, fans of the Metal Gear series can now set their attention to the upcoming Metal Gear 5: The Phantom Pain release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC. And with just weeks to go before the arrival of the next installment in the series, we want to take a look at what we think are 10 of the most exciting details regarding the next Metal Gear Solid 5 release.

Last year, Konami released the first Metal Gear Solid 5 game. That game, dubbed Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, is the prequel to the bigger Metal Gear Solid 5 game that’s confirmed for September on Microsoft’s current-gen and last-gen consoles, Sony’s current-gen and last-gen consoles, and PC.

That game is Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and it very well could be series creator Hideo Kojima’s last big entry into the Metal Gear franchise. Kojima is widely expected to announce his departure from Konami after the Metal Gear Solid 5 release date in September.

In the buildup to E3 2015, we heard a whole lot about Kojima’s next major Metal Gear Solid game. And in the days since the end of E3 2015, we’ve seen a number of new Metal Gear Solid 5 release details emerge as we approach the game’s release date for PlayStation, Xbox and PC.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Release Date

With E3 2015 over and done and the Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain release date still cemented into September 1st, it looks like that's going to stick as the release date for consoles. If Konami needed more time to complete the game, it likely would have made that announcement already. Not even Kojima's impending departure will impact the game it seems. 

So, what this means is that the next Metal Gear Solid release is just a few weeks away. And with a few weeks to go before the game's release, we should see several more details emerge in the buildup to the game's release for console and PC. 

This game has been a long time coming and if you're huge fans of the series like we are, there is reason to be excited. There's a good chance that this will be the last major Metal Gear Solid release for awhile so savor the buildup to the release date and savor the release date itself. These don't come around too often.
