The closed Los Angeles studio was founded in 2013 as an overseas base for Kojima Productions, which handles the METAL GEAR SOLID series, but in response to the fact that Konami's production system has shifted from in-house production production to headquarters system, Production Los Angeles studio "to the current one. After that, it turned out that the name of Mr. Kojima and Kojima Production was not written in the package of METAL GEAR SOLID V, concerning the relationship between Kojima and Konami.

The closed studios are working on the latest version of MGS V's online mode "METAL GEAR ONLINE", which is expected to distribute large updates in November, and will release the PC version in 2016 as well. Regarding the development and operation of the METAL GEAR SOLID series, it is not clear which department in the company is responsible, and I am wondering how Konami will respond.
