Can’t really say no one saw this coming, yeah?
“Konami has made the decision to close its Los Angeles Studio, effective immediately, due to the product development resources being restructured into a more centralized unit. 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.” Konami said in a statement.
You know what’s awesome? That Konami still maintains that Kojima is on a vacation. Like, seriously. LOL.
