A rumor from George Broussard says that Konami has shut down Kojima Productions LA. With this potential closure, some 35 jobs have just been lost.

The rumor is just that, a rumor for right now. If true, however, this could spell disaster for any potential updates for Metal Gear Online, the competitive game mode that was recently added to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on consoles. The PC release of Metal Gear Online was (and still is as far as we're aware) slated for release on the PC early in 2016.
