Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Shipped 6 Million Units; Konami Posts Financials
Konami posted today its financial results for the nine months ended on December 31st, and they’re quite positive. All the values in the black, even if profits are slightly lower than in the equivalent period of the previous fiscal year.
The company also revised upwards its revenue prediction for the full fiscal year.
In particular, the Digital Entertainment segment, which includes video games, remains the company’s bigger earner, and the one that turns the largest profits.
Interestingly, we also learn that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (a Hideo Kojima Game) shipped a whopping six million copies worldwide since its release, including both physical retail copies and digital download.
One thing is for sure: while Hideo Kojima isn’t working at Konami anymore, he can be proud of his game’s continuing success.
