Because Konami plans to expand the portfolio, continuing to develop "world-famous franchises." It is not known whether these will be new games on Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill, but judging by the words of the head of the European division Masami Sano, the company will please console gamers.
“Even with the release of new platforms, we believe thathigh-quality console games are the most important ... We also plan to expand our portfolio. In addition to the multiplayer games for PES and Yu-Gi-Oh, we plan to work on projects with other “world-famous” IPs in the near future, ”Sano said.
