Now that Metal Gear Solid V is getting a definitive edition, Konami has gone on record (via Metal Gear Informer) to clarify the infamous Mission 51 from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The publisher responded to fans on Twitter regarding the cut content, saying Mission 51 “is not complete” and that it was never meant to be an ending, that the ending of the game has “never been missing.” They also said The Phantom Pain is simply “a prequel game to Metal Gear (released 1987).”

Coming from this, Konami also stated the publisher has “no current plans to further develop” Mission 51. How do you guys feel about the plot and resolution of the game? Was it wrong for Konami to cut the content and make it only available via a Collector’s Edition bonus disc?
