Is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain coming to PC?
Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima wants a PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
"PC, that's my original background," Kojima recently stated in an interview. "I originally created PC games. A long time ago I didn't want to rely on platforms to release games, so if people want it, I cannot make a formal announcement, but that is definitely something that I would like to do."
Please note that this is not a confirmation of a PC version of the game. The game is currently only confirmed for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3. Several previous entries in the Metal Gear series, such as Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, never made it to the PC. It is also worth noting that there are no plans for a PC version of The Phantom Pain's "prologue" Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, currently set to be released for consoles on March 18. 2013's spinoff Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance did get a PC port, but it was almost a year after the console version's release. It may be the same case with The Phantom Pain.
Even though this is in no way a confirmation, it is good to know that Kojima wants it to happen. The game, which is said to be hugely ambitious, would do well to come to the most powerful platform there is. The game's trailer from last year's E3, embedded below, is very impressive as well.
(Warning: contains graphic violence and torture.)
Hopefully, if there's enough interest in a PC version, it'll happen.
