Konami Has No Plans To Finish MGSV The Phantom Pain's Mission 51

One of Metal Gear Solid V’s most important plot points, Mission 51, ended up on the cutting room floor. Today, Konami said it does not plan to finish this mission.

As Kotaku reported last year, footage of a deleted mission, made up of concept art, narration, and half-finished cut-scenes, appeared in the game’s previously released Collector’s Edition. These unseen leftovers do give closure to some of the characters.
