The PC version of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released on September 15, two weeks after the console edition arrives September 1, publisher Konami announced today.

Konami did not provide an explanation for the different release dates.

It's not uncommon, however, for PC versions of high-profile games to launch after their console counterparts. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes came to PC in December 2014, a full nine months after the game's release on consoles in March of that year.

Konami also today announced the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Collector's Edition and more.
