Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi has responded to claims that the game’s graphics have been downgraded.
Following the release of the latest gameplay video earlier this week, a few fans took to Twitter to express concerns over the reduced quality of the game, pointing out missing shadows, altered lighting, and more. Honestly it sounds like people getting worked up over nothing, but that didn’t stop Imaizumi from setting the record straight.
If you know game making process. We normally don’t change or downgrade in this phase. Always have to be comes first. https://t.co/SgT3p6hj48

The latest gameplay video offered an alternate way of approaching the “A Hero’s Way” mission that was shown off during E3. Instead of utilizing Diamond Dog as a companion, Snake instead opted for Quiet and sleep grenades.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set to hit PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on September 1. A PC release will follow on September 15.
