Konami stops all AAA console production, except for PES – report
Konami is reportedly ceasing its AAA development efforts on all games except Pro Evolution Soccer.
Following on from this morning’s report that Fox Engine director Julien Merceronhas left Konami, a new report from the same French website says the publisher is not investing in AAA console games any more.
The sole exception is the Pro Evolution Soccer series. That means no Metal Gear or Silent Hill to come, despite Konami’s earlier statements suggesting the former will continue.
Eurogamer too was able to corroborate this report, adding that the suspected reason for Merceron’s departure is true. This will not affect Metal Gear Online, which is set to launch on October 6.
