It's not a big surprise. Everything we've heard about the company over time. They're absolutely abysmal to employees and even their own IP's, just farming them out to anybody. They wont give credit where it's due and just can't handle any semblance of their employees getting credit while the board/company gets overlooked.

FucKonami news sections by Jim Sterling, and his videos directly covering them, say more than I ever could.

True, but as someone who loves their IPs, it's a small tragedy. I wonder if we'll ever get another proper AAA game from them (Survive doesn't count)...

We'll get AAA games from em. They'll just be poor and aim for the lowest common denominator. Survive is a pure example of that. IP names will get tacked on ro anything just as a money grabbing exercise.

Konami has been detoriating for years now.

Indeed. Though I'm not completely discounting Metal Gear Survive just yet.

I don't care if they produce the next citizen cane of gaming, I will not purchase their games.

Its always funny how when a person leaves revisionist history arrives. Before going full on media I worked at a software company where all that was done was an e mail saying so and so was no longer with the company and that was it.

... as if they weren't allowed to say anything while they worked there or something.

Also, cry me a f*****' river, Cox. Didn't care for your Cstlevania of War game, anyway.


Castlevania was my favorite series growing up and still is. It's unfortunate how the series doesn't get the proper respect and treatment it deserves. I enjoys the most resent games but I just don't think Castlevania will ever be what it once was.
