Lastly, European Community Manager for Konami Su-Yina Farmer tweeted: “I’ve had a sneaky peek and yes you should be excited.”
So, are you excited?
Battle in MB revealed in GC is NOT what MGO will be. That was one of the online elements in MAIN STORY that players can sneakin MB together.

Translation of Kojima’s Japanese tweet by JunkerHQ: “The Mother Base battle gameplay we showed at gamescom is not part of the new MGO, which we’ll be unveiling at TGA. What you saw at gamescom was one of the main game’s Mother Base online features, which allows players to infiltrate each other’s Mother Base.”
