Konami has released its financial results for the fiscal year of 2016 (March 2015 – March 2016). Unfortunately we don’t learn a lot about MGSV’s total sales, but the company does mention that ‘these titles [MGSV:TPP and PES2016] are available to provide long-term enjoyment through continuing operation.’ In other words it seems as though they will continue supporting both games, probably in the sense of regular updates and tournaments as we have seen the past half year.
Nevertheless, the company expects a significant decline in profits for the next fiscal year, predicting a revenue of 95 billion yen as opposed to the 132.7 billion of the past year for the Digital Entertainment sector. Konami intends to keep focusing on the growing smartphone and tablet PC market, but they do also recognize consoles’ increasing popularity in the west, as well as VR, as opportunities.
