Konami is 'still working on console games' amid big budget AAA woes

Rumors of Konami not making big budget AAA games gets squashed, with the company reiterating it's 'still working on console games'

Amid rumors that Konami was halting all development of big budget AAA games so that they could focus on mobile games, the developer has come out squashing those rumors, saying that it is still working on console games.


Not only that, Konami has said that they're "not leaving Metal Gear behind or anything like that", which should have fans of the series happy that Konami isn't leaving the franchise - but without series creator Hideo Kojima, can we expect Metal Gear Solid to feel the same without him? Konami's customer support talked with Nintendo life recently, saying: "I can promise you that we're definitely not leaving Metal Gear behind or anything like that".

They added: "I know some blogs were claiming that online this morning, but I'm not really sure where they'd be getting that from. We're still definitely working on console games and franchises such as Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, PES and all the rest".
