Konami shuts down its L.A studio

Japanese publisher Konami has officially closed its LA studio, which consists of the team responsible for Metal Gear Online. 

"Konami has made the decision to close its Los Angeles Studio, effective immediately, due to the product development resources being restructured into a more centralised unit," said the publisher said in a statement. 

It also went on to say that this won't effect the release of Metal Gear Online, which is still scheduled to release early next year.

“This facility contributed to the recent Metal Gear Solid games. Konami will continue its operations to support all Metal Gear Solid titles, including the recently launched Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Online. Metal Gear Online is still scheduled to release for PC Steam in January 2016."

It's thought that in the future, Konami will focus more on mobile than console, although we imagine that titles such as PES and Metal Gear will continue in some form.
