Metal Gear Online Beta Delayed
Konami wasn’t expecting the level of traffic the Metal Gear Online Beta was producing and have decided to delay the beta a bit. To make of for this the beta has been extended.
We would like to thank all players for their keen interest in taking part in the beta test.
However, we regret to inform you that due to extraordinary levels of traffic from all around the globe, we have been unable to run the service to the level we expected.
As a temporary measure, we will be deferring the start of the US public beta test until we are able to stabilize our server.
We would like to apologize for all inconveniences as well as confusion caused.
We would like to add that due to the above reasons, we will be making the following changes to the schedule:
1) Starting date: TBA. We will be making another announcement on 22/4/2008 23:00(PDT)
2) Beta Test closure: This will now be on 11/05/2008 at 24:00(PDT) rather than 06/05/2008 at 24:00(PDT)
Tomorrow we should have word on when the MGO Beta should kick off. I know it sucks but its better this happened now rather then the when the game goes live.
