In an interview with NowGamer
, the creative director and producer of Konami’s upcoming Metal Gear Solid: Rising
confirmed that multiplayer would be an aspect of the game. Shigenobu Matsuyama and Mineshi Kimura were directly asked whether or not the game would have a multiplayer aspect similar to Metal Gear Online. Their response was as follows:
“We’re still actually considering this aspect as of now. We won’t make the game without online, but we’re still considering what element of online to put in the game
So there you have it; multiplayer will be included but as to what it will entail, nobody knows (literally). Considering that the multiplayer aspect hasn’t even been decided upon, I think that it is safe to say that this game is still quite a ways off...
