The Official Metal Gear Timeline

Do you know where Metal Gear Solid falls in the chronology? What about Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker? Or Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake?

For the past three decades (three decades!), the Metal Gear games haven't been released in chronological order. For example, last year's Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is set in 1975, while Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain takes place in 1984. And so on.

Via PlayStation Japan, above is a handy chart to keep all the games in order.

A new Metal Gear chronology clip from Sony Japan promises that MGSV: TPP will settle the "greatest mystery in Metal Gear."

That, of course, being what happened to Hideo Kojima.

    Can love bloom, even on the battlefield?

      it would be hilarious if MGSV: TPP turned out to be a japanese dating sim.........with stealth elements??

        Heh. I'm thinking Persona 4 but instead of going into the TV Junes uses their cutting edge stealth aircraft to drop you deep into war torn Africa. By the end of the year you learn a lot about yourself, friendship, love and how to kill without leaving a trace.

      "she likes dogs, she must be a good person!" lol good old otacon, was so pussy whipped

    Poor Portable Ops, it deserves more recognition.

      It definitely does as a game, as it really was the foundation for Peace Walker, but like the other projects that Kojima wasn't directing and super hands-on with (such as the Ac!d series, Ghost Babel and Revengeance), it was never really canonical to the main story. It makes sense in this instance to not see it on the official story timeline.

    I love the MGS on the PS1 and i had no idea it was set in 2005 lol.

    Yes yes that's VERY nice, HURRY UP I NEED IT NOW.
