Metal Gear Solid V Might Be Konami's Last AAA Title...Ever
The evidence is starting to mount: Konami may be out of the big-budget game business for good.
First, it was previously revealed that Fox Engine Director Julien Merceron left the company.
Then, French publication Gameblog (as translated and confirmed by Eurogamer) says Konami has no plans to release a new Metal Gear title after the acclaimed entry, The Phantom Pain, which launched on September 1.
Currently, the only major game in the publisher's hopper is the new Pro Evolution Soccer. Furthermore, Konami composer Rika Muranaka, who has worked on the Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania franchises, says on Twitter that she must also find new work:
Yes....it's pretty sad...now, I can't write music to any of AAA games..well, I need to find another AAA game company https://t.co/lVIFRXi95a— Rika Muranaka #MGWV (@unjazzmusic) September 18, 2015
Is this the end of Konami as we know it? Or is it merely a lull after releasing a super huge title like MGSV?
