Who ever knows what Konami are up to? Between the reported fallout with Metal Gear maestro Hideo Kojima and new tales of Kafkaesque working conditions, maybe even Konami don’t know. But for once, this has worked to our favour. Konami have shunted the PC release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain [official site] forward a fortnight to September 1st to match the console editions.
It’s not that simple, of course: Konami’s announcement today also notes that its multiplayer, Metal Gear Online, won’t launch until January 2016 – though the console multiplayer will kick off on October 6th. Oh, Konami!
