Konami unsure why Metal Gear Solid V's 'Nuclear Disarmament' event triggered


Go figure

This past weekend on the PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, the "Nuclear Disarmament" event was triggered. For those unaware, this is one of the "hidden" events in the game that was to be unveiled once users online disarmed all of their nuclear weapons. It was supposed to be a moment where gamers could come together and realize that violence isn't the answer. Obviously that hasn't occurred, so why did the event trigger?

Konami, surprising no one, doesn't know. Taking to Twitter, the company has confirmed that the event triggered prematurely. The global nuke count for the PC version is not at zero, so this event shouldn't even be happening. They are still looking into what occurred so that they can prevent this kind of thing from happening again.

There could be many reasons for why this has happened, but I'm going to assume someone hacked the Konami servers. It isn't uncommon to find people on the PC version with loads of FOBs and hacked stats, so I'm guessing someone had enough waiting and just spurred this event into happening.
