Konami is pretty much dead after MGSV as a traditional gaming publisher.

MASTER_RAIDEN888d ago

I don't understand how a seemingly successful company can allow this to happen.

breakpad888d ago (Edited 888d ago )

their more experienced Japanese brethren (Sega , Square,) turned back 180 to quality console games as they saw the futility of mobile games and the exploding sales of their homeland console PS4 ...still Konami is like living in another world disbanding on of the most talented teams ,cancelling uber wanted games and taking the route of sure fail

nX888d ago

Who knows, at this point I could even imagine that Kojima himself started this. He always wanted to end MGS but Konami probably brought him back, maybe this fiasco was the only way to walk away from MGS. In any case, I'm glad he's going to finish MGS5 and hope he'll continue to make games (and not move into the movie industry).

Volkama888d ago

What? When did Sega go back to quality console games?

breakpad888d ago

@Volkama their next game will be as they say at least a AAA console game

Viper7888d ago (Edited 888d ago )

KOnami could at least publish the Ps2 version Suikoden in european PSN so I could finally play it.

@Volkama
I feel pity of Sega, they've made/published bunch of great games like Yakuza, Valkyria chronicles, Vanquish, Resonance of fate and Bayonetta among others.

Those were all great games and appreciated by many, however the sales for each of those were disappointing at best.

RumbleFish888d ago

I don't want to defend Konami because I am a fan of the MGS series and like most gamers I was craving for that Silent Hill game, but we know how big Konami is. They have toys and pachinko and they simply don't care about AAA video games anymore. It's sad but it's a fact.

SolidStoner887d ago

Kojima need to get MGS full rights and continue on by himself.. Im sure he will get tons of supporters!

Who cares about Konami anymore, im very excited to find out Kojimas next project.

solid_snake3656888d ago

I hope he makes a horror game. Silent hills looked promising.

3-4-5888d ago

* Konami still has Suikoden.

If they were smart, they'd bet big on Suikoden and give us a true pure Suikoden 6 for PS4/XB1/NX

Aloy-Boyfriend889d ago

This guy and David Hayter think we are going yo care about future MGS games without Kojima...

Abriael889d ago

I am. Games are games. Kojima is surely a genius, and I have absolute respect for him, but I definitely don't deny the possibility that someone else might make a great MGS game.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI888d ago

The possibility of that is absurdly low especially considering konami will not have any writing talent after this.

showtimefolks888d ago

Abriael

That is possible but you have to understand the love that kojima puts into each mgs game. This is his baby, to others it's IP.

Konami have said that they don't make money from mgs or Atleast not that much and will be focusing on mobile platforms. So if that's the case we may not get another mgs for a long long time

The amount of stuff in mgs 5 is absurd, look at the options man. Kojima is gonna give this game a rightful goodbye

Hopefully one day either Konami comes back to its senses or they sell the IP

As sad as I am that kojima is leaving konami, I am more happy to see what he does next. He has been talking about not doing more mgs, but with fans not giving him much of a option. Now he won't have mgs so he will do what he wants

Hopefully he can finish the silent Hill project but call it something else.

DanielGearSolid888d ago (Edited 888d ago )

Different ppl can make good games ofcourse.

But I'd rather it be for a different IP

let MGS be kojipro's legacy

ChrisGTR1888d ago

look at what happened with ninja gaiden series after itagaki left, .. well ninja gaiden 3 happened. im sure same fate goes for MGS franchise.

2pacalypsenow888d ago

Rising ... I'll leave it at that

Irishguy95888d ago

Remember Rising? The Konami team Kojima left to do it ****ed it up so Kojima gave it away which breed revengeance. Konami ain't good enough/

Well it's highly unlikely but someone could come in and actually be better than Kojima. Note that I said unlikely, but you can never be certain until we see the next release. However hype will be at an all time low until proven otherwise.

FallenAngel1984888d ago

10 years of excellent service. RIP you legendary dev team.

bigboss20888d ago

Last konami game I'm buying, anything else after mgs5 they can stick it where the sun don't shine,let em milk this game if they like I'm not buying it lol

spacedelete888d ago

will Kojima even get any money MGSV makes now he longer works there ?

timmyp53888d ago

Kojima was paid for his heading and involvement. He doesn't own the franchise. Not going to get royalties or something if they continue publishing new games.
