Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will be released in North America on February 19, with Europe and Japan following on February 21. No UK date was given, but release date conventions make February 22 a shoe-in.

Rising moves the Metal Gear franchise away from its traditional stealth gameplay, promising an exhilarating action game unlike anything ever witnessed in previous Metal Gear titles.

The Metal Gear series has exceeded sales of 32.4 million units globally, with a commemorative event planned on August 30 to celebrate the franchise's 25-year history.

Konami's press release makes no mention of a PC version.
