Konami has yet to announce a release date for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. But it has been rumored that it will launch around the middle of this year.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes was released as a teaser in 2014, but--despite its overall positive reception--critics and fans noted its brevity.

"As Metal Gear games go," IGN's review of the game read, "Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is a stripped down affair. It avoids lengthy cutscenes, climactic boss fights, and the usual frayed and tangled plot strands in favour of smart, tactical gameplay.

While its central campaign is indeed as short as you might've heard at around two hours, its multitude of options make for an engaging and tense experience that encourages replayability for hours afterward.

Besides a somewhat clumsily delivered ending, this is Metal Gear for modern tastes; lean, mean, and wickedly fun."

In addition, Youtube critic ProJared listed Ground Zeroes as one of the worst video games of 2014 due to its length.
