Konami is NOT giving up on Console Gaming

Some rumors have been going around lately that Konami is giving up on Console Gaming except for Pro Evolution Soccer, and will only focus on Mobile Gaming and Pachinko. Konami already released an official statement last May stating this was false, but people are reporting it again anyway.

A Konami Europe community manager has since shot down these ridiculous rumors:

Also someone opened a Support Ticket with Konami asking if these rumors were true, they were given the response below:

"I can promise you that we’re definitely not leaving Metal Gear behind or anything like that. I know some blogs were claiming that online this morning, but I’m not really sure where they’d be getting that from."

"We’re still definitely working on console games and franchises such as Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, PES and all the rest."

It is great to see that Castlevania was mentioned in the ticket, hopefully a new CV Console Game will be coming soon.
