A Konami Rep Claims They Are Still Making AAA Console Games

Phantom Pain

News recently broke that claimed that Konami has halted production on all of their major AAA franchises other than Pro Evolution Soccer, though a Konami rep has recently claimed that that is false.

Replying to a fan on Reddit, a Konami rep said the following:

“I can promise you that we’re definitely not leaving Metal Gear behind or anything like that. I know some blogs were claiming that online this morning, but I’m really not sure where they’d be getting that from. We actually had a press statement just a few months ago stating that were still making MGS games moving forward, and shared a link on where folks could apply to work on it. I’m not sure why they forgot about it so soon, but we’re still definitely working on console games and franchises such as Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, PES and all the rest.”

So, take from this what you will, as it’s good to hear but still leaves the company’s complete lack of transparency on these matters in question. Fans have every right to be skeptical about what is going on with the company, and Hideo Kojima parting ways with them has only added fuel to the fire. It’s hard to imagine a Metal Gear without Kojima at the helm, and the cancellation of Silent Hills still stings to this day.
