A new news from French website Gameblog alleges Konami dismissed Kojima given he was personally funneling income from Metal Gear Solid V to assistance account Silent Hills, yet Kojima Productions has squashed a report.
Back in 2015, Konami fired Hideo Kojima and scrubbed his name from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Konami also cancelled Silent Hills, a fear supplement Kojima was creation alongside Guillermo Del Toro and Norman Reedus.
Ever given afterwards Konami hasn’t expelled a large AAA strike and has mostly focused on mobile, pachinko, and annualized sports games.
So what happened exactly? No one knows for sure, yet during slightest we know what didn’t happen. Kojima Productions has strictly debunked a gossip that Hideo Kojima was squirreling divided income from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain so he could work on P.T., a demo for Silent Hills.
Rumor has it Konami was so difficult on budgets that Kojima had to re-allocate and pierce some of a MGSV money to assistance account growth of Silent Hills.
This isn’t true, of course. The existence is Konami has simply altered gears.
The association seems reluctant to deposit a millions compulsory to make outrageous big-budget Kojima epics, so it split ways with a developer after decades of faithfulness and clever revenues so it could turn some-more lean.
As distant as a central terms on Kojima’s departure, we won’t know that for certain any time soon, expected due to contractual obligations.
There’s a china backing to a dissection though. Kojima has found a new home with an determined and successful devteam, Kojima Productions, and a Konami split-up indeed desirous him to make Death Stranding, that has been utterly profitable.
Right now Kojima is operative on a new diversion and it could be Death Stranding 2. But he also wants to make a new fear game…so we could see a P.T. devout inheritor arise too.
