Rather than asking what talent is leaving Konami, it's starting to look more and more like the better question to ask might be, who's left?...

Odd. I knew their video game department was focusing more towards mobile stuff, but their card game personelle as well? Konami really is restructuring.

Will Yu-Gi-Oh! die? Kindly finish Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V properly and release all the Numbers first before dying.

As soon as the new movie comes out (but not here in the US), that's it.

Even the card games executive can't stand the tyranny, but Konami deserved this, Konami needs to leave the gaming industry.

Yu-Gi-Oh may or may not die, it depends on if Konami sells off the rights to it or not, but if they sell it off, the chances of it going to a console, handheld, or PC developer is very low, it's doomed to be a F2P money pit which is death in itself as gamers are concerned.

I have a feeling it won't be too long before Konami is left with a skeleton crew that seem interested in only the mobile and pachinko markets.

and its pretty much a nail in the coffin on their demise now. the question is not a matter of if, but when. and dont be surprised that the first to go will be their TCG division since that side have been a joke ever since they purchased the remains of the horror that is 4kids, renamed it 4k media and have turned the YGO franchise as a uber butt joke in the Western otaku community.

I know it's cool to hate on Konami now, but a business executive getting a better job offer doesn't sound like something that would signal the end of Yu-Gi-Oh!.
