The creator of Metal Gear Solid, Hido Kojima, has thrown out the idea today that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain could be incorportated across different consoles sometime soon.
Speaking on an interview from IGN, Kojima said that he considered the idea of multiplatform development after Metal Gear Solid 4, and created Peace Walker around the idea of a game players could access whenever they wanted.
Kojima also said:
“Metal Gear Solid V will have many more elements that aren’t limited to one console. You’ll be able to play the game on whatever you want, whenever you want.”
Further on into the interview, he said this:
“MGS 4 was a turning point: the engine, the multi-platform, and online elements. Moving forward I wanted to have a Metal Gear Solid that you could play on whatever you wanted. And that’s how we created Peace Walker. Now we’re presenting something again that’s console-only, but that’s not actually true of Metal Gear Solid V.“
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released for the Xbox One, PS4, PS3, and the Xbox 360. It doesn’t have a release date at the moment, but we hope for one to come up soon.
