Konami isn’t done making AAA titles just yet.

Following a report several days ago that stated Konami was halting development on all major AAA titles aside from Pro Evolution Soccer, which presumably led to the departure of FOX Engine overseer Julien Merceron, the publisher’s customer support spoke to Nintendo Life and clarified things.

“I can promise you that we’re definitely not leaving Metal Gear behind or anything like that. I know some blogs were claiming that online this morning, but I’m not really sure where they’d be getting that from.

“We’re still definitely working on console games and franchises such as Metal Gear, Silent Hill, Castlevania, PES and all the rest.”

The question at this point remains though – what’s next for Konami, especially given all the controversies it’s endured this year including the departure of Hideo Kojima? Time will tell so stay tuned for more information and let us know what you think in the comments.
