Konami Devs Skipped Vacation To Release MGSV On PC Earlier


You might remember that Konami had previously planned to release Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on PC two weeks after the console launch. However, recently they brought forward the release date of the PC version, which will become available in two days, just like on PlayStation & Xbox platforms.

Earlier today, Ken-Ichiro Imaizumi, Senior Producer at Konami Computer Entertainment Japan, explained how this happened: the developers at Konami skipped summer vacation altogether in order to meet this deadline.

PC users often complain about delays and/or mediocre ports, but this time it seems like these programmers need to be commended.

Later, he added that they enjoyed making the game look prettier on PC (this version will be the best one graphically, thanks to many subtle improvements), though of course their families probably weren't as happy.

In somewhat related news, it seems like the PC retail version of MGSV: The Phantom Pain only has the Steam installer exe file on disc.

This is quite baffling if true. In any case, do you plan to get the game and if so, for what platform? Tell us in the comments!
