Developer Confirm MGS: Ground Zeroes Locked at 60 FPS

/ 2 years ago


Seemingly, in a bid to take some of the heat off Ubisoft – Developer Kojima Productions has announced that the latest MGS release will be locked to 60 FPS through a post in the game’s STEAM discussion page.

This post reads:

Hello all,

I hope you saw today’s announcement, please feel free to share the info-graphic linked within to get the word out past these forums.

Controller/Keyboard & Mouse Control Options

I’ve relayed your feedback and received confirmation from the team on a couple of other items for the December release of MGSV:GZ.

– Unfortunately, Dual Shock 3 and Dual Shock 4 controllers, while supported, will not have proprietary input displays in the UI. The controller inputs rather follow the displays common to Xbox Controllers.
– The FPS is locked at 60 for MGSV:GZ.

I’m continuing to clarify some points and will get back to you with more info soon!


This was met with a surprisingly good reception, given the pitchforks we’ve seen across social media and Reddits PC Master Race community. With the first reply being “People with 120/144Hz monitors aren’t going to like this news, but hey, at least it’s not locked at 30. And I understand why one might need to lock the framerate; Physics issues and stuff. Thanks for communicating with the community.” shows that maybe we’ve come to terms with 60 FPS not being the worst of the worst, and will take whatever scraps we’re given. But I still find it very unacceptable for a A+++ developer to bring out such limitations.

There are a few quite upset fan-boys in the audience, quite obviously in some physical pain over their once-loved developers limitations. As monitors become more advanced in refresh rate technology, with 144hz hitting the mainstream market, are we going to see a full transition back to 60Hz technology? After all, what’s the point in purchasing an ultra-smooth monitor when the main brunt of your games cannot look decent on them no matter what. Unless you’re an eSports fanatic and are playing games such as CS:GO, there’s a South Park quote/meme that will suit this situation quite well.
