MGSV: Ground Zeroes delayed in Australia and New Zealand

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes has been delayed in Australia and New Zealand by a week. This has been confirmed by Konami, as reported by NZGamer.


The game was originally set for release on March 20th, the same day as in Europe and Japan. The new release date is March 27th. The reason is said to be the Xbox One version not arriving in time, after which Konami decided to hold back the other versions as well. This hasn’t been confirmed, however.

One thing that should be noted is that this probably only affects the physical versions, as the digital versions are still listed for March 20th.

    Hey Nyxus, frequent visitor of your site 😀 It’s great.
    Just a interesting question, since you have pretty much as much insight as one could have in this, what would your estimated guess be for phantom pain’s release. Right now I don’t know if I should expect 2015, 2016 or even 2017 ^^

    • Four0oz2Freedom

      Anticipated release is sometime between FY3/2015 through FY3/2016.

      • Batzi

        Four good to see you here 🙂

    • Nyxus

      I would say late 2015 or early 2016.

  • CaptainBKM

    My feelings to those affected.

  • Janeo

    Oh man I’m very upset I have been getting ready for the game just finished portable and started peace walker I was ready to finish it on Wednesday night now I gotta wait another week it really ruins my play maybe I should hold off replaying peace walker for a week just until the release date gets closer, well that ruins my week

    • ah damn, Im sorry to hear that friend :<

      Is there no way you could Go digital?
      Im not so sure yet, but you still may be able to find it on the PSN store atleast, but do not quote me on that.

      • Janeo

        I really want the disc and cover I just like it better that way. Plus my friend was telling about thief the other day saying he didn’t like it because it have the illusion of freedom so when I get this I’m planning to take it this house to show what a real stealth game is try get him into the series

  • Josue Quintana

    Nice and courious image we supposed to see that face of Big boss when the game realease

  • Well this sucks, I booked a week off work. I start work again on the 27th 🙁

  • Patrick Esdam

    Oh god, the gamers of Australia must really hate their government sometimes.

  • PrinceHeir

    Ehh that sucks

  • Pissed Off

    This is bullshit, man. I’m from New Zealand, and I pre-ordered the PS4 version only to find that I don’t get my game because the Australian Xbox One versions won’t arrive on time. As far as I can tell NZ is up to date with all platforms versions of the game, but because the world sees NZ as part of Australia rather than a separate country we get treated like shit too. I might have to cancel my order and try to get the digital version, which is a shame because I really love having the physical copies of things. Or maybe I’ll abandon my stupid country and join a mercenary group, maybe that way I’ll get the game on time. FUCK, another week of spoiler dodging for me…

    • Im in the exact same boat as you man. Im still going to wait for the physical copy because as you know, New Zealand also has terrible internet and my provider will probably charge me $50 to download 5GB of data on top of the PSN price…

      • Pissed Off

        Too right mate, that’s why I’m in two minds about cancelling my physical copy. I honestly can’t believe Konami would be so ignorant in dealing with this situation.

  • Marxal

    So not only do we have to pay fucking $70 for the game; it’s now delayed for a week and we have to continue spoiler dodging? Fuck New Zealand -.-

    • Pissed Off

      Pretty much bro, you get to suffer for Australia and Xbox One users all while paying top dollar for it. I’m legit pissed off at Komani’s ignorance, “Hey, let’s deprive at least 3/4s of the people who want this game because we’re to fucking stupid to ship the slightly upgraded 360 version so that it will get there on time” Good job really treating your customers like shit Konami.

      • Janeo

        What makes you think it’s only Australia who don’t have the xbox one version coming. I know this annoying but it’s not really konami who have done this they just wanna release all versions at the same time which is fair enough

        • Pissed Off

          All reports I’ve seen say only the Xbox One version didn’t arrive in Aus, and how is it fair enough? Everyone else having to put up with the delay because because a small portion didn’t get their copy sent on the right day?
