According to some claims the creator of the Metal Gear saga and the publishing house Konami parted ways earlier this month after thirty long years of successful collaboration.
That Hideo Kojima will leave Konami, the company where he spent all of his career, was known at the beginning of this year. However, it has never been clarified why exactly Kojima and Konami parted ways – why Silent Hills was canceled, and why MGS 5 turned out as if it was missing more content. Somehow I doubt that these things will remain confidential, but probably we will get at least one side of the story when Kojima is no longer an employee of Konami.
According to the newspaper The New Yorker, a divergence has already happened on the 9th of this month. Kojima was even thrown a farewell party judging by the picture which was taken then. However, Konami has no idea about any kind of farewell party for Kojima. Their official response is that Kojima has really left his job – to go on vacation.
