Metal Gear Solid V Not Priority on PC, But Could Appear Sometime

Metal Gear Solid hasn't been on PC for quite some time. The last MGS title on PC was Metal Gear Solid 2 and that was about 12 years ago.

Before you say it, yes, Konami have announced Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to PC, but thats a Metal Gear Rising game and doesnt count ;). In an E3 press interview, Kojima talked about a possible release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC, so its time to be excited...

“Of course we are developing on a PC, so we look forward to releasing something on the PC sometime,” said Kojima. “But right now we don’t have a release date. We aren’t really looking to do that right now. That’s not a priority. So, we are making it and we hope to put it out as well.”

Ok so no need to get too excited, but it does sound like it should happen. So thats cool.

If Metal Gear Solid V eventually comes to PC, we will know that Konami is warming up to PC, as they are traditionally a "Develop only on consoles" type of company.

Do you guys think that this will come to PC? Or will it stay a Console Exclusive? And does this open up to other console exclusives to be released on PC?

What does this mean?

beging will not make them develop a pc version, we made a petition for gta5 and nothing happened yet

..and as the title suggests, MGS was never a priority on the PC after the second part. It would be a miracle if they released it without some begging. :P

Don't worry about GTA:V because considering the statistics, every major GTA game has been released for the PC with no omissions. The next-gen consoles use similar architecture of that of PCs, it would be easy to program GTA:V for the PC. So that's also a BIG PLUS. :D

Too early to tell, mate, but you should be able to run it. It hasn't even been announced yet, and if it is coming to PC or not. But you should definitely be able to run the game.

I can't wait! the latest MGS I played was peace walker on theh psp, I can't get a console right now, and I probably never will get one, it's kinda annoying that no MGS title has made it on PC besides the really old ones.

Hmmmmmmm i don't know. Dark Souls was a fairly recent one which was a poor port. hopefully with the next Gen consoles having a PC architecture they'll be better. Fingers crossed :)

I don't mind when it comes to pc just as long as it does and they don't keep it just for console.
