Konami’s Worldwide Technology Director Leaves, Company Ceases Triple-A Games Development

Things are not looking good for Konami and FOX Engine fans, as the Konami’s worldwide technology director Julien Merceron has left the company. Not only that, about according to the latest reports, Konami has ceased all triple-A games development for consoles and PC.

Metal Gear Online fans, fear not as that particular mode has not been cancelled. Metal Gear Online is still under development and will be coming to the PC this January.


Moreover, Konami will also keep developing games for its PES series (in fact, it’s the only series that’s not affected by Konami’s decision to cease triple-A games development). Whether this is good or bad news for PC gamers – especially after those weird hybrid versions of PES 2015 and PES 2016 – remains to be seen).

As Gameblog claimed, Konami will be now focusing on mobile games and pachinkos
