There's no one to make Metal Gear Solid, but Konami is preparing new big games for consoles

Konami, the publisher of Metal Gear Solid, is working on new games for consoles based on the world-famous franchises.


In recent years, the company has produced mainlymobile games, but consoles remain the main platform for the developer. Therefore, Konami plans to expand its portfolio by continuing to develop “world-famous franchises.” It is not known whether these will be new games based 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 increase the portfolio. In addition to 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.

Besides Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill,The company's "world famous" franchises include Contra, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Castlevania. These three episodes have not lost the love of fans, but have long since disappeared from the radar. Perhaps Konami has decided to blow the dust off old and popular franchises by bringing them back to the industry. In addition, the company recently recalled Silent Hill.

“We will continue to release many games startingfrom high-quality to casual projects in many genres, and in the near and foreseeable future we will hold fan competitions and eSports championships,” Sano concluded.
