Launching back in 2008 with Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Online, the online Metal Gear spin-off, had 1.3 million members at one point in 2009. This summer, Metal Gear Online is going offline. The game's service is finished, Konami stated today.
On June 21, the MGO's in-game client will come to an end. But first, on March 21, the MGO Online Shop will cease operations. It will no longer be possible to make new characters by late April. However, all the game's expansion packs will be free until service ends in June.
