When Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain drops later this year, it will allow 16-player online matches with two teams of 8. These 8v8 matches will only be capable on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions of the game, while the previous generation Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles will only be capable of 12-player matches, or 6v6.

The 12-player limit on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game are reportedly tied to hardware constraints on the previous-gen consoles, as the game itself will be quite taxing on the visual side of things, with the Xbox 360 and PS3 not up to handling 16-player matches.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will launch on September 1, with its separate online component, Metal Gear Online, launching at the same time.
