Hideo Kojima leaving Konami?

Rumors have been circling the gaming community that legendary game designer, Hideo Kojima, is leaving longtime publisher Konami. Few details are currently available, but according to Gamespot, Kojima Productions currently has restricted communications, restricted access to promotions for MGS V, and has altered the official working relationship of many of the staff. According to Gamespot’s source, Kojima and many of the senior staff will be leaving Konami.

Presumably this will not affect the development and publishing of Metal Gear Solid V, but questions arise pertaining to the future of Silent Hills. We’ll provide more information as it becomes available.
