PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance not ruled out

Console versions will launch first though

Metal Gear Rising had a rough start: saved by a switch from Kojima Productions to Bayonetta dev Platinum Games, a PC version was scrapped from the list of platforms with the move. But all hope is not lost.

When Metal Gear Rising was announced two years ago, PC was listed as one of the platforms it would appear on. Since switching devs and becoming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PC is no longer listed as an available platform, just PS3 and Xbox 360.

To set the story straight, Eurogamer spoke to Yuji Korekado, creative producer of Kojima Productions to find answers about the PC version.

Korekado explained that right now the team is "doing [their] best to complete at the same time the PlayStation 3 version and the Xbox 360 version." He then went on to explain that the PC version has neither been confirmed or canceled, it is a decision the team will make once they reach the "goal of completing the PS3 and 360 versions."

Korekado does wonder if a PC version is what people really want. He expressed that "a lot of users, especially from Europe, have asked for a PC version. Is it something really that in demand for the European market?"

Eurogamer responded with a "resounding yes," which can also be heard all the way in Australia, with Steam being a favourite for many PC gamers to buy games digitally.

Korekado concluded by saying, "then, with that in consideration, we will try to look forward in this direction," however he was quick to point out that if the PC version came to fruition, it would be after the console launch.
