    Kojima bust up with Konami - leaving after MGSV

    Breaking news. It looks like Kojima and Konami may well be parting company.

    Very weird, I wonder what the hell is going on over there. I hope this doesn't somehow affect the release of MGSV in any way.

    I'd imagine Kojima-san would finish off the game in August and then part ways with Konami. Seeing that Kojima Productions is now literally defunct, it seems that it's the only possible solution for Kojima-san now.

    That this stuff goes down in business continues to amaze me. With out him Konami are relegated to a nothing company that was a once great Arcade manufacturer.
    Guess this really will be Snakes last run.

    Are you really surprised though? Look around it's happening a lot more than you'd think though. Look at Activision what they've done(Original Infinity Ward team etc) Same with Crapcom with Keiji Inafune.

    Although this one's going to sting if true.

    this could be a good thing though. With all the OG producers leaving the big companies,it could be a resurgence of good ips.

    And what Ubisoft did to Patrice Desilets (AC creator).

    True, but we'll have to see, and also it's good because the corporate squeeze from some of these companies may be coming to an end.

    I know people love Triple A titles like this, but again things like this happening might be best for the industry as a whole.

    I'm not worried about MGSV with this news. I'm worried about Silent Hills because the teaser and the demo felt really $#@!ing promising and truly horrific and terrifying in atmosphere and tone, which is something Silent Hill has struggled with after number 3. $#@!, I really looking forward to Silent Hills so $#@!ing much. The game could have SO MUCH potential with MORPHEUS and the graphics look unbelievably amazing for a PS4 game. Like, the best graphics I have ever seen on a console ever. $#@!, I really hope Silent Hills doesn't become vaporware now. Pls Kojima, no pls.

    We're in the same boat on that, but in some way this is mean of me I know lol, but I kinda hope Kojima kinda messes with the game(in a bad way) kinda of like how the creator of DBZ(forget his name) did the Buu Saga

    I guess Konami is happy with just PES keeping them afloat.

    Same could be said for most of the other companies in Japan about the only two companies left that I even remotely trust to deliver a good game(not to sound rude to them) is Atlus and Sega.

    Barely, sure it has bigger market in Asia but isn't even as half as successful as FIFA. Nice knowing you Konami.

    Yeah I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't open his own studio. Should get interesting.

    Kojima + Sony + Syphon Filter =

    There's no point in pointing fingers at Konami saying that they're in the wrong, we don't even know what has happened behind closed doors.

    As for Syphon Filter, it can't happen, IP is not his.

    Look at it like this.

    If kojima was making excessive demands that Konami didn't want to conceed, then thats fine, but its still their fault that they have relied so heavily on him as the big money earner.

    On the other hand if Kojima left cause Konami was asking him to do things he didnt want to do, its still their fault.

    Either way its hard to have sympathy for a company that has put themselves in to this position.
