Announcement of METAL GEAR ONLINE service termination
Announcement of METAL GEAR ONLINE service termination
MGO is an online game featuring many unique systems such as "Coordinated play via the SOP System","Combat Training Mode", "Championship Tournaments", etc., based on the system and world of "METAL GEAR SOLID 4: GUNS OF THE PATRIOTS".

The service was originally intended to have a life span of 3 years. However, out of respect for our loyal fans, we have continually pushed back this deadline in order to support our online community.

Nevertheless, we have regretfully come to a point where players have experienced all that this iteration of Metal Gear Online is able to offer. Therefore, it saddens us to announce that we have decided to end online service with the upcoming fourth anniversary of online service. We would like to apologize to all of the users who are currently enjoying the Online Service for this title, and kindly ask for your understanding.

All of the staff involved would like to offer our deepest thanks for the support we've gotten since launch. Thank you for coming with us on this journey. Your help allowed MGO to grow and mature. We regret that this journey must end, but we sincerly hope that we will have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.
"METAL GEAR ONLINE" was included with "METAL GEAR SOLID 4" and launched on June 12th 2008.
However, we regret to announce that online service will draw to a close on June 12th 2012 after four years of service.

Thank you to everyone for your loyal support of METAL GEAR ONLINE.
