Just one day after Metal Gear Solid
series creator Hideo Kojima appeared on stage during Microsoft’s E3 press conference to confirm the series’ fifth installment The Phantom Pain
would be coming to the Xbox One
, he confirmed a PS4 version is also in development.
This announcement was made via Twitter
, after a Metal Gear
fan responded to the Xbox One announcement by asking if Phantom Pain
would still be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 as originally planned.
Kojima then answered, “Yes. So's PS4 & Xbox One”.
So Snake fans who can’t afford to pick up a next-gen platform at launch will still be able to enjoy all of the suspense, drama, and tactical/stealth action on a current one.
I can’t say this all too surprising but I can certainly say it’s a great decision on the part of Konami and Kojima Productions.
