Hideo Kojima would like to bring Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain to PC

Kojima wants Metal Gear Solid 5 on PC

Metal Gear Solid 5 has been confirmed for every non-handheld platform apart from the Wii U and PC. But series creator Hideo Kojima would like to change that, bringing the latest installment of the venerable franchise to PC, according to Gamespot.

“PC, that’s my original background. I originally created PC games,” Kojima said. “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.”

It’s certainly something I’d like to see happen. While I couldn’t get through MGS4 – the gameplay was simply too fragmented, to make way for half-hour-long eruptions of pseudo-intellectual guff – the rest of the series, notably MGS3, is quality stuff. And I’d really rather not pick it up on my aging PS3.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance did manage to make it over to PC, despite 4’s absence. Sure, we had to wait almost a year, but it did arrive eventually. Sales numbers were not revealed, but if it did sell well, that could certainly increase the chances of us seeing 5 enter the PC’s library.

Would you fine folk grab it on PC, if it was available? Or is it strictly a console purchase?

Cheers, Gamespot.
