Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima appears in the video and states that the game will be the last Metal Gear Solid title.

“With Metal Gear Solid V, I'm finally closing the loop on that saga," Kojima said. "In that sense, this will be the final Metal Gear Solid. Even if the Metal Gear franchise continues, to me, this is the last Metal Gear."

The game is slated to ship for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC. Metal Gear Solid V consists of two separate games: Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes provides the backstory behind the events in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes already debuted on consoles in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and Europe last year. Both games will be released for PC via Steam in the future.

Kiefer Sutherland plays the role of Snake in the games produced and directed by Kojima. Yoji Shinkawa serves as character and mechanical designer, Hideki Sasaki as CG art director, Junji Tago as technical director, and Masayuki Suzuki as lighting artist.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain features Snake after he wakes up from a nine-year coma. Snake has lost a lot of his abilities, and must crawl through a hospital to escape.
