Remember when Hideo Kojima attempted to tease us last year with the absence of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain during Metal Gear Solid’s 25 Anniversary event last year? One of the things showcased instead was a new social game, titled Metal Gear Solid: Social Ops, which would be made available for the GREE mobile platform in Japan. Now, it seems that the game will be shutting down on December 13th, a little more than a year after it first launched.

Konami has announced the same just recently and considering that it launched on December 4th 2012, it hasn’t had a bad run. The game incorporated aspects such as boss fights, 3D graphics and real time sneaking despite featuring aspects of a collectible card game. For whatever reason though, the game just wasn’t successful enough.

What are your thoughts on Social Ops being shut down? Is it a big loss or should Kojima Productions focus on bigger and better things? Let us know below.
