The game director first jokingly stated that “it won’t.” He then went on to provide a more serious answer by admitting that “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” will be a big game. As a result, the development team still has a lot of tasks to be completed. In fact, Hideo Kojima gets “dizzy” just thinking about the amount of work.

[The Phantom Pain] is really vast. We’ve got so much to do. I get dizzy just thinking about it.

“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” came out for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms on March 18 in the United States. The prologue includes a code to unlock DLC for the mainline title.

Although “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” does not have a formal release date window, Konami Digital Entertainment hinted that the aforementioned downloadable content pack should be made available sometime during the early parts of 2015.
