Metal Gear Online
, the multiplayer feature of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
, will be terminated tomorrow at 11:59 p.m. JST
(10:59 a.m. EST), on the day of the service's four-year anniversary. Originally, MGO
was slated to run for three years, but it was extended
"out of respect for our loyal fans," Konami writes.
"Nevertheless, we have regretfully come to a point where players have experienced all that this iteration of Metal Gear Online
is able to offer," Konami's announcement reads
. "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."
If you have a few hours to kill, maybe take that phrase literally and hop on your PS3 for some Metal Gear multiplayer action tonight.
