Last year at this time, Konami said it was shifting away from console games to focus on mobile development. The move has apparently paid off, as the publisher has reported a revenue increase of about $300 million over the last fiscal year.
In its latest earnings report, Konami said (via Gamespot) that for the fiscal year ending March 31, revenue went from about $2 billion to $2.3 billion, with before tax profit of about $218 million. Operating profit increased about $86 million. It's biggest mobile game was Jikkyou Pawafuru Puroyakyu, which has more than 22 million downloads. Other mobile games that performed well were Professional Baseball Spirits A (Ace), World Soccer Collection, CrowsxWorst, and Professional Baseball Dream Nine.
Metal Gear Solid V was mentioned in passing as receiving "high acclaim," but retail sales numbers were not mentioned. In January, Konami reported the game had shipped 6 million units.
Despite the mobile focus, Konami reportedly was hiring for a new Metal Gear game, and Solid Snake voice actor David Hayter mentioned in March via Twitter a codec call between Snake and Colonel Campbell. With E3 coming, I imagine we'll know soon if MGS will make a new appearance on console of if it is just another mobile game.
