Konami has closed its LA studio, sources close to the matter have confirmed to Eurogamer, with over 20 jobs lost in the process.

Rumours of the closure emerged last night via a number of tweets from developers, including 3D Realms co-founder George Broussard.


Quote:
Konami opened the LA studio in 2013, initially as an arm of Kojima Productions to help with the development of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, and more specifically with its multiplayer component, Metal Gear Online.

More at the source!

Why are Konami doing this? sad-smiley-002.gif

Konami have repeatedly shown themselves too be one of the most despicable company's in the gaming industry (formerly).

Konami said they not going to be making any more AAA games

I'd imagine shutting down this studio is part of that plan

Looks like they're really following through on their promise of pursuing crap mobile games.

The Pc version of metal gear online still not out, so this semi-worrying. I have interest in MG Online more than the single player, I am one of those guys who only really invest the little time I have in an online game. So this is a bit concerning but I know that awhile back they had said mgo would come out next year for pc

If they're closing the studio before the end of the year, that means we're not getting Metal Gear Online for the PC since that's slated for a early 2016 release right? redface.gif

If you bought it on PC and it doesn't get MGO you'll definitely be able to get a refund at some point. However, I wouldn't be surprised if it's actually done and they just delayed it to help the console versions.
