Konami announced that it will restructure its internal gaming divisions on February 1. The announcement was published on the official website of the company back on January 15, but it was only now widely publicized.
Konami announced that it is disbanding three gaming divisions. The company said it was a reaction to the rapidly changing market. This is probably a coronavirus pandemic.
At the same time, many experts believe that Konami does not stop playing games, but simply combines three gaming divisions into one. Previously, SEGA and Square Enix did the same. In addition, the company also kept its IPs with itself.
The only major franchise that Konami continues to support is the Pro Evolution Soccer series of football simulations. The company does not share details about Metal Gear Solid and Silent Hill, although various rumors about the revival of the cult series sometimes surface on the network.
