Kojima to Reveal New Metal Gear Online

Metal Gear architect Hideo Kojima will reveal the next edition of Metal Gear Online at a games event in December.

Little is known of the multiplayer-focused game, nor whether it will be sold standalone or come packaged with Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, but Kojima is expected to reveal early details of the project at The Video Game Awards 2014.

Geoff Keighley, a games broadcaster who produces the new game awards show, revealed on Twitter that Kojima will provide a “world premier” of the new game. It’s not clear whether this will come in the form of a gameplay demo or a trailer, though games award shows tend to opt for the latter.

The first iteration of Metal Gear Online was released in 2008, bundled with the PlayStation 3 exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. More than one million players registered for the game, though by 2012, publisher Konami decided to shut down its servers.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is expected to ship in 2015. The game’s prologue, Ground Zeroes, shipped on cross-gen consoles this year and divided critics.

The Video Game Awards 2014 will take place on Friday, December 5 in Las Vegas–which is the night before Sony’s PlayStation Experience community event. It will be streamed on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and PC.
