Konami historically has been seen as one of the big key developers of gaming in Japan. Right along with Square, Capcom, Namco, and Sega. Like those four, Konami has a stable of historically important franchises. However, unlike the other four, Konami seems to not have the same level of care about their history. Take for example Castlevania. We haven't seen a new Castlevania game that wasn't a collection package since the end days of the PS3/ 360 era, with Lords of Shadow 2.
To make matters even stranger. We have animated series based off the franchise, and indie games making Castlevania-esque games. So my question is why is Konami leaving everyone else to carry a legacy they themselves should be doing?
