The action game launched on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 earlier this year. This PC release marks developer Platinum’s debut on the PC. And at the time it was set for release across all formats. But due to time constraints the PC version was absent.
At Gamescom last year Kojima Productions creative producer Yuji Korekado said Konami would consider a PC version after the release of the console version.
“Right now, honestly, we are doing our best to complete at the same time the PlayStation 3 version and the Xbox 360 version,” he explained. “For the PC version, we will contemplate making it or not once we reach this goal of completing the PS3 and 360 versions.”
Series creator Hideo Kojima made the announcement on the latest episode of Hideradio, published on Kojima Productions’ Hideoblog.
This is fantastic news for PC gamers who are fans of the series. I for one am quite excited as I have been a fan of series for a long time, and having moved from console gaming to PC a few years ago was dissapointed that the game was not being released on PC.
Could this be the start of more previously only console titles making their way to the PC format?
