The Metal Gear series is one of the biggest franchises on game consoles, and the latest chapters are coming to the PC. In a livestream from the Gamescom conference yesterday, director Hideo Kojima confirmed that PC versions of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain are both on the way. They'll be released on Steam, too. Whet your appetite with the E3 trailer for The Phantom Pain:
Well, that was dramatic—and a missed opporunity to put David Bowie in a game trailer.
Ground Zeroes is meant to be a prologue, and it's actually been out on current- and last-gen consoles since March. The Phantom Pain is scheduled to hit those platforms in the first quarter of next year. There's no indication of when the PC versions will be available, though. Since the Ground Zeroes port is coming after the console release, I'd expect The Phantom Pain to get the same treatment. Sigh.
The previous game in the series, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, came to the PC about a year after debuting on consoles. Let's hope there's a quicker turnaround this time.
