Hideo Kojima Has Split From Konami

Hideo Kojima Releases New Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Images

Nikkei, a Japanese financial publication has reported that Hideo Kojima has left Konami. While we’ve reported this in the past, this time Kojima has taken his team and left. The report when translated discusses how Kojima plans to bring his team with him and create new content for Sony and their PlayStation platforms. It’s unspecified on how many have taken leave with Kojima, but, it’s looking like it’s time for him to begin a new chapter in his life.

Most recently, Hideo Kojima was banned from The Video Game Awards by Konami and could not be there to accept his reward.
