Hideo Kojima has flown from E3 to Tokyo for the PlayStation Premier event to reveal that Metal Gear online is in the pipeline for PS3.
According to reports originating on Famitsu.com, it's the online component that was featured in Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence. So it'll have sneak, capture and rescue multiplayer missions along with Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, presumably.
What's not yet clear is whether Metal Gear online for PS3 will come as part of Metal Gear Solid 4 or released as a separate entity. Kojima will be present with the product at a Metal Gear anniversary event in Japan next week, so hopefully details will be confirmed then.
Konami was unable to add anything further when contacted.
