Konami to consider PC version of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance after launch of console version

"Is it something really that in demand for the European market?"

There is no PC version of Metal Gear Rising Revengeance - for now.

In 2010 Metal Gear Solid: Rising was announced for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. But when it was re-revealed last year after development duties transferred from Kojima Productions to Bayonetta developer Platinum Games, the PC version was absent from the game's list of platforms.

With the PC version seemingly cancelled, Eurogamer asked Kojima Productions creative producer Yuji Korekado for an update.

"Right now, honestly, we are doing our best to complete at the same time the PlayStation 3 version and the Xbox 360 version," he explained. "For the PC version, we will contemplate making it or not once we reach this goal of completing the PS3 and 360 versions."

Korekado then asked Eurogamer whether European gamers wanted a PC version of the hack and slash.

"One question from us is, a lot of users, especially from Europe, have asked us for a PC version. Is it something really that in demand for the European market?" he said.

We replied with a resounding yes, pointing out that games sold digitally on platforms such as Steam can be very popular.

"Then, with that in consideration, we will try to look forward in this direction," Korekado concluded, before confirming any PC version will launch after the console versions in February 2013.

"No, it won't be for that release date."
