** In March 2015, Konami underwent an inexplicable change in brand management policy, with all indications pointing to the higher-ups becoming frustrated with their published games becoming more associated with the people and studios that created them, especially Creator/HideoKojima, than the Konami brand. As a result, they started to remove all mention of studio and director names from advertising and the front of game boxes.[[note]]Including [[OrwellianEditor games already released]].[[/note]] Kojima Productions was affected the most by this change. Naturally, this clashed ''violently'' with Kojima's AuteurLicense, which led to a fallout. Kojima left Konami a month after the game was released and Kojima Productions was disbanded entirely and renamed into a generic "Konami" studio. Konami stated that they would continue to develop ''Metal Gear'' games without the involvement of Kojima. [[InternetBackdraft As you can imagine]], this utterly ''destroyed'' what goodwill fans had towards Konami.

** Skull Face's original name was supposed to be Scarface. He was also meant to appear on the box art for ''Ground Zeroes'', but he was removed because Kojima thought that would be too creepy.

* ActorAllusion: Creator/KieferSutherland was cast as the new voice of Snake in part as a reference to his role in as Jack Bauer in ''Series/TwentyFour''. [[spoiler:After seeing Snake in the prison camp, Chico starts to panic and begins drawing attention to them. It doesn't take long for Snake to apply a sleeper hold on him while saying "Don't fight it."]] He also faces off against beings that replicate humans, much like [[Creator/DonaldSutherland his father]] [[Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers1978 did]] (he provides the vocals for Raiden in "Jamais Vu" mission).


* DuelingGames: Among some fans, rivalries are already popping up with the likes of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' forthcoming. The game is also coming out the same day as the ''Videogame/MadMax2015'' game.

** It came out after the game's release that Kojima was [[https://www.gamnesia.com/news/kojima-was-banned-from-talking-to-his-own-staff-during-mgs-vs-last-6-months barred from directly communicating with the development team]] during the last six months of development, and had to speak through intermediaries. Konami also barred him from [[http://www.wired.co.uk/article/konami-bars-hideo-kojima-from-collecting-metal-gear-solid-award appearing at the The Game Awards 2015 show]] to accepting his award in-person. The reasons for these actions are unclear, but both actions only served to further fuel the fans anger toward Konami.

Added DiffLines:

** Originally there were going to be enemy guard dogs in the game who could be able to smell and hear at ranges greater than human guards, and they could also detect you in the darkness. This would have made taking showers at Mother Base even more important because if Snake got smelly from being out in the field too long he'd stand out even more to dogs. This feature, like many others, was cut for time and budget reasons.


** After dataminers found evidence that there was a third chapter meant to be included in the game, Kojima made a series of tweets that featured the number 3 (such as complaining that a television show he likes never had a third season).[[note]] The series he mentions is the original Danish version of ''The Killing'' or Series/Forbrydelsen [[CriticalResearchFailure which did get a third and final season]].[[/note]]
