Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes To Have Multiplayer?


"Kojima Productions, the development team behind Konami’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes are opening up a new Los Angeles based studio. The Gamasutra job listings for the new studio don’t specify a specific title, but they do state that they are looking for people with experience in making multiplayer action games. It wouldn’t be a stretch to think that this team could possibly be handling a multiplayer aspect for Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes since Metal Gear Solid 4 introduced Metal Gear Online."
"A listing for the new studio popped up just yesterday revealing that Kojima Productions is indeed seeking someone with experience in maintaining and tuning both singleplayer and multiplayer game balance. Meaning the new Los Angeles based development studio is definitely working on some kind of multiplayer experience and the best guess does point towards Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes."- The Examiner.

Another MGO? oh boy...
Interesting....but depressing. Makes me look old....it's like what Snake said about "all the VR rage a couple years back" in MGS4. The new possible multiplayer could end up becoming something for the new kids to enjoy while us older folks are like "screw u...back in our day during the first 2 Metal Gear Online series. We had laggers, hackers, glitchers, booters, tea baggers, noob tubers, trollers, and stat boosters. Now you have weapon thieves, map hackers, ??????, ?????, ??????, and ??????. Damn kids and their shuffling hip-hop music..." but I could be wrong.
I really hope they don't try to be too much like other multiplayer-heavy games. I never got into MGO because I very rarely found a server that actually facilitated stealth-focused multiplayer gameplay. Most everyone I met played MGO like a twitch-shooter which is a completely respectable genre of game, but MGO doesn't really bring anything new to that genre.
I agree, in multiplayer i left half of the servers because wen some1 put me down with CQC they would sorround me andnever let me get u i hated that
I hated getting thrown to the grown and shot up with shotguns 95% of the time.
I do hope there is another MGO soon. There doesn't seem to be many people online in the multiplayer for Peace Walker. Another sneaking mission mode would be fantastic ^_^

What I hated most was the other team basically camping where your team spawned after being killed. I can understand people who prefer acting as snipers etc. But just camping on that spot and not letting the other team have a chance at least was awful.
While the graphical style may not match Metal Gear, I feel there is a lot the Kojima Productions team could learn from Valve and Team Fortress 2 as far as balanced game mechanics...

That's only Konami's fault, they didn't design the spawning areas for the multiplayer experience, just for the VR convenience, which was a shame, when people understood that they could just spawn camping to win.
well i hope they put multiplayer in MGS GZ and hopefully better then the first 1
It's been pretty much confirmed that the purpose of the new LA Kojima Productions studio is to produce the next Metal Gear Online iteration.
they should make the aiming sistem alot better i just could use a gun
