With all the talk about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance lately it’s easy to overlook Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes which is also in development by Kojima Productions. Ground Zeroes was announced at PAX back in April and is slated for a Summer 2013 release. The game will follow the story of Big Boss and take place sometime before Metal Gear Solid 5, which is still in the planning stages.
The big news here though is that UK retailer Zavvi has started taking pre-orders for Ground Zeroes for the PC. Metal Gear titles are traditionally console releases, it’s unexpected but not unprecedented that Kojima Productions would try to reach out to a new audience. The kicker however is that the game was not announced for the PC, and no official announcement has been made.
So did Zavvi let something slip, or is it just a mistake? You can take a look at the listing here and decide for yourself, but personally I’ll be hoping that it does come out for the PC as well.
