News comes from Ken of Kojima Productions that, KP will be represented by Sean Eyestone & Tan ‘Jackie’ Zang at this years E3. I asked him if Kojima would be attending and said only they would be there from the team.

With Sean and Jackie having demo’d the game for E3 attendees last year, we still have no confirmation whether or not the same will happen for this years or whether the game will be playable on the show floor either.

Having been to E3 many times and being used to seeing a lot of the team being there, I will say, it will be very different with the lack of presence from the full team.  This was something I unfortunately feared and predicted on our last podcast, but I’m sure the whole team is working hard on putting the finishing touches on The Phantom Pain.  I can’t wait to see the new trailer which will undoubtedly highlight the fruits of their labor.

Don’t forget to join MGN on 9am(PST) Monday for the first tease of the new trailer on MGN’s Twitch Channel, then 11am(PST) for the full reveal. Keep it here for more.

Via GameSpot by Peter Brown and Rob Crossley:

A fallout between Kojima Productions and its owning publisher, Konami, has led to senior staff at the studio being restricted access to corporate internet, emails, and phone, GameSpot understands.

Along with the restricted communications, key developers at the studio, such as Hideo Kojima, will now have limited opportunities to lend their appearance to promotions of the studio’s upcoming game, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.

Power struggles between Kojima Productions and Konami have led the publisher to make drastic changes, including the employee status of its Metal Gear team. Some senior staff at the studio, including Kojima, now essentially work as contractors, not permanent employees.

The extraordinary measures were revealed by a source within the studio, speaking to GameSpot on the condition of anonymity. The person explained that, once the Phantom Pain project is finished, in all likelihood the management at the studio will disband.

“After we finish MGSV, Mr. Kojima and upper management will leave Konami. They said their contract ends in December,” the source claimed.

The person added: “At a team meeting, Mr Kojima explained that team have to be one and make a good game for fans.”

The official release date of MGSV: The Phantom Pain has now been announced as 1st September 2015 on PS4, XBOX ONE, PS3 and Xbox 360. The Steam version of the game will also be released on September 15th. Japan will also get the game one day later on September 2nd.

Well thanks to a leaked video from IGN (Italy?), we now know the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. According to the video the game is set for release early September. See below:

This video leaked ahead of time from IGN, was originally been set for an exclusive reveal at tomorrow morning, March 4th.

In the video, which is captioned in Italian it seems, Hideo Kojima discusses the gameplay and various details surround the game, at the end of the video we see the worldwide release date of September 1st 2015. Kojima also interestingly enough as he does with every game in the series said this will be the “last metal gear”.

More to come tomorrow says Konami and Su from Konami UK:

So here at MGN, we takes steps to try our very best to never post rumors or stories with no reliable sources at all costs. Sometimes it happens but we have a pretty good track record. I’m glad to report a source who came to us stating IGN would have an exclusive on the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and would announce it soon. We initially didn’t believe at all because the source seemed unlikely, but it turns out to be completely REAL!

Not only is that the case but we are in particular confident this “special announcement” is the release date based off the source code on the official MGS web site as seen below:

There it is guys, get hype we know we are and its happening on Wednesday morning and we will have the news as it breaks here on MGN. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the up to the minute news as it happens.

By far the number one question I get asked on twitter, streaming on twitch, or where ever for the past year has been… “WHEN IS MGSV COMING OUT?!”. Well it seems we will know soon enough. The latest Kojima Station episode co-hosted by Ken-ichiro Imaizumi Senior Producer Kojima Productions, somewhat teased the release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is imminent.

“I know you’ve all been eagerly await for word on releasing timing,” a Kojima Productions spokesperson said during the broadcast. “I think we should be able to announce that soon, so look forward to that. It’s only a little longer.”

Ken has also been very active on twitter saying things like “Hideo and KJP are working very hard to make it better quality everyday and night. It’s not just ready to announce yet.” but also saying “We love everyone so we don’t want to ship unfinished product so please please stay tune.”

Ken hasn’t gone so far as to say if anything significant will be said or shown at the Taipei Game Show on January 31 but only “new information.”

If you have been following Kojima on twitter you would have seen shots of him personally checking out TPP during the bug check phase, as the team is currently adjusting many of the game’s features.

The imminent release date is also enforced by the latest tweet by @JunkerHQNet saying

Little late on this report sorry about that everyone. Kojima productions have launched their Tokyo Game Show 2014 Special Site with on stage date and times as well as product information that you can buy at their Konami booth. Loads to show, so look below.
