Well this is depressing…
According to a pair of reports from French site Gameblog and others like Eurogamer and GameSpot say, Konami has ceased all triple-A console game production on everything but Pro Evolution Soccer and there are currently no plans for a big new Metal Gear game, while worldwide technology director Julien Merceron has left the company.
Julien Merceron, worldwide technology director at Konami leaving the company is unsettling as is but a complete cease? This honestly doesnt make complete sense since Konami was already working on building a new team for future Metal Gear games. So for now until we get more confirmed and further details take all of this with a grain of salt.
It also doesn’t help when you read tweets like this
