Each Eurogamer and quite a few builders perceive that Konami has closed the Los Angeles studio chargeable for Metallic Gear On-line, slicing “over 20 jobs” on the similar time. Reportedly, the corporate had already shifted MGO improvement to Japan shortly earlier than Metallic Gear Strong V arrived in September — the LA crew was principally left to offer help and dream up concepts for video games that may by no means be made.

We have reached out to Konami for a touch upon the closure, together with the fates of these affected and MGO (notably the but-to-be-launched PC model). Nevertheless, it is protected to say that Konami is not about to inject new life into the multiplayer Metallic Gear expertise. The agency was prepared to kill a flagship recreation like Silent Hills — it has even much less incentive to prop up a secondary title, regardless of how comparatively well-liked it is perhaps.

BREAKING: Rumor tells me that Konami has shut down the Kojima Productions LA studio, taking with it approx 35 jobs, simply earlier than Xmas.
