Hideo Kojima

The fractured relationship between Hideo Kojima and Konami seems to have finally come to an end. Most well-known as the mind behind the Metal Gear series, Hideo Kojima has reportedly left the Japanese developer to start up his own brand-new studio with other former Konami staff.

The news comes from Nikkei, a Japanese newspaper, who also note that Kojima will be working closely with Sony on a Playstation-exclusive project as their debut title.

Months of rumoured tension between Kojima and Konami came to a head this month at The Game Awards where Geoff Keighley called out Konami for barring Kojima from attending. Kiefer Sutherland, who lent his voice to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain as Big Boss, collected the award for Best Action/Adventure instead.

Alongside the many Metal Gear games, Kojima also worked on other games under Konami such as the Zone of the Enders series, Policenauts, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the infamous P.T., a playable demo for a new Silent Hills game that never made it to a full release.

Both parties can now move on from this heavily-reported saga and we can hopefully look forward to more brilliant Single Player games from the mind of Hideo Kojima.
