Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain may be released in early 2015, according to Konami.

Konami has remained quiet on a release date for The Phantom Pain up until now, having previously stated the game could launch at any time between late 2014 to late 2015.

In the meantime, fans will have Ground Zeroes to tuck into, which arrives in the U.S. tomorrow and this Friday in Europe.
