It will be interesting to see how the story develops and unfolds. Although the franchise was pretty much wrapped up in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, there is plenty of 'empty space' in the Snake timeline. Ground Zeroes is said to be set after the events of Peacewalker and is also destined to pe a prequel to The Phantom Pain. Rumoured to have mechanics and gameplay from PeaceWalker, Zeroes sounds like a return to form, even including a more open world to explore. It is interesting to see Konami have two Metal Gear games in the pipeline and we watch with interest to see how The Phantom Pain shapes up.
