Konami and Hideo Kojima have been hush for the past two years on when Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would see the light of day. Guess what. The studio has just confirmed an official release date for the game: September 1, 2015. Yes, the sequel will hit the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 this year, with the PC version hitting Steam on September 15.

But with great news comes sad news, as Kojima claims this will be the last game in the MGS series. Or at least this will be his last:

“I always say ‘this will be my last Metal Gear, but the games in the series that I’ve personally designed and produced — Metal Gear on MSX, MG2, MGS1, 2, 3, 4, Peace Walker, and now MGSV — are what constitute a single ‘Metal Gear Saga.’ With MGSV, I’m finally closing the loop on that saga.”

It’s also been confirmed that the competitive multiplayer mode, Meta Gear Online, will go live at launch too.

Adding to the awesome news comes the announcement of The Phantom Pain Day 1 and Limited Edition versions. Details below:
