Konami and Kojima’s Divorce has Resulted in One Company’s name missing from Cover
Theres been a lot up in the air about whats going on between Konami and Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima. Yesterday the plot thickened as Konami has removed all mention of Hideo Kojima from the cover of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
However yesterday, Konami gave a statement via the Japanese Metal Gear Twitter account to attempt to clear the air.
“In accordance with the recent change in production organization of all of Konami, Kojima Productions, as well as other internal production companies, has had its name, etc., changed to move into the corporate headquarters work structure.
The name and organization has changed, but as before, MGSV: TPP is continuing as a work from director Kojima and the existing team members.”
“The social networking account has also been changed, but the new account has the same Metal Gear team members as the previous one, and is updating with the latest news. As the team members who are tweeting is unchanged, we would like your continued support and follows.”
“director Kojima is playing the game, checking all the small details and giving directions to the staff as the title continues to completion. Bringing the thoughts and ideas of director Kojima in an open world game of the size of TPP is incredibly difficult, the director and the team that’s been there from the start are coming together as one as they aim to finish the game, so please give them the support they need.”
