Konami came under fire in 2015 when, for a number of reasons, they canned ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' and Creator/HideoKojima left Konami. 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 {{arcade game}}s, most notably the Franchise/{{BEMANI}} franchise, Westerners find no relevance in such games due to a combination of NoExportForYou and overall decline in opinion of 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.
