The company would eventually get yet another blemish to its reputation in 2017 when Japanese newspaper ''Nikkei'' wrote [[https://asia.nikkei.com/Business/Companies/The-Konami-exodus an article]] about how one of Konami's directors used his ties to a large insurance company to deny health insurance to Kojima and other former Konami employees -- or "ex-Kons", as the article puts it.

Konami came under fire in 2015 when, for a number of reasons, they canned ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' and Creator/HideoKojima left Konami because they had given him a hard time. Following that, Konami announced their departure from console gaming to focus on mobile gaming and a larger focus on its non-video gaming domestic efforts, namely pachinko and slot machines -- a move that has left a sour taste in many fans' mouths, especially Western fans. While Konami still produces UsefulNotes/{{arcade game}}s, most notably the Franchise/{{BEMANI}} franchise, many Westerners find no relevance in such games due to a combination of NoExportForYou and an overall decline in arcade games in the West. However, it was [[http://throwingdigitalsheep.com/konami-exiting-triple-a-space/ reported]] [[https://youtu.be/wAeD6BR9e5k?t=480 that]] the rumors "departure from console gaming" is false and they are [[https://www.konami.com/jobs/en/career/spe/mgs_en.php hiring]] for a "new Metal Gear" project. Konami later announced a [[https://youtu.be/QwkvVWTS7OM pachinslot machine based on Metal Gear Solid 3]] as well as [[https://youtu.be/QwkvVWTS7OM Metal Gear Survive]], a ''VidoeGame/MetalGear'' SpinOff co-op survival action game.
