When you little lamps come together, you are like a sewing circle …
Last week, industrial giant Konami announced it would undergo some corporate restructuring, consolidate some of its internal departments and reorganize its staff to better streamline its production division in response to a rapidly changing market. What it did not do, however, was “close down the gaming division.”
This was the word that quickly spread across the internet yesterday, and appeared all over social media despite the actual announcement made back on January 15th. In response to this rapidly spreading rumor, the longtime developer sent a hastily signed official statement to IGN, confirming that for the most part, business remains as usual at Konami.
“The announcement refers to an internal restructuring, with production departments being consolidated,”
In essence, these changes simply move more top executives to new roles, while they are officially disbanded and then restructured more production departments into larger, departments. The staff in each disbanded division are all expected to move on to roles in the new teams. Konami’s restructuring has taken effect from 1 February 2021.
So do not worry, Konami is still not making a new one Silent Hill.
