Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain might not launch until FY15/16


Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain might not release until financial year 2015/2016, according to some information coming from developer Konami’s post-financials investor call.

Konami claimed PS3 was their their biggest source of revenue, as indicated by the console accounting for 56 percent of all video games sold by them in the last nine months.

The company sold 7.1 million video games in total during those nine months, down from 9.5 million for the same period last year.

For the nine months to December 31, 2013, profits for the company were down 42 percent to 5 billion yen ($49 million) with sales down 2.6 percent to 156 billion yen ($1.5 billion).

Tweeting extracts from the investor call live as it happened, market analyst David Gibson revealed that MGS 5: The Phantom Pain might not come out for quite awhile:

He also added:

Is it really possible that Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain could be released as late as 2015 or 2016? Another question to ask is what are the seven major console titles they plan to release?

We know that one of those titles is Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, as the game is set to come out in March. But can you really call that a major release with some reports claiming the game can be completed in roughly two hours.
