Metal Gear V Ships 5 Million, Konami's Profits Double
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is easily one of the best games of 2015 and clearly, the consumers have responded.
As part of Konami's first-half financial results, the publisher confirmed that five million copies of MGSV have been shipped since its launch in September. This has helped the company double their six-month profits. Overall, Konami's Digital Entertainment division pulled in ¥51.7 billion, up from ¥44 billion a year ago. Operating profit rose from ¥7.4 billion to ¥12.7 billion as well, and net profit rose from ¥3.9 billion to ¥7.8 billion.
Despite this, there's still evidence that Konami is moving away from big-budget AAA projects and trying to focus more on mobile.
