Good to know, just leave alone to finish his masterpiece.

Well that's good news I guess, tho I doubt he'll be as enthusiastic as he was.

PS. F*ck you Konami(sorry, had to do that).

DoctorXpro949d ago

I only have Xbox One for now just waiting till GT7 comes out to get a PS4, I really wanted PT so bad but looks like its not going to happen.

Of course he will be, Kojima would never step away from an MGS game that he himself started producing. That's the man's baby, after all.

One_Eyed_Wizard949d ago

Too bad the baby's mom is taking it away forever. That's the system for you.

I won't buy it, Wizard. I deny the existence of an MGS game without Kojima. I've never played Rising as well, not a big fan of spin-offs. MGS ends with the Phantom Pain in my book. Not even an argument for me, so they might as well do whatever they want with the corpse of our beloved MGS. They better not find it surprising when the sales of the series dip, though.

Probably the last good MGS game

I highly doubt that honestly. Thy just want people to think that so they will still buy it. Why not wait until the game was released then fire him if they were going to let him continue working on the game? So, basically he is working on the game for free? Good lie Konami no wonder you are going down hill

Exactly what I'm thinking, if he really was still in charge this news would of came out a while back when we heard news of Kojima leaving to calm people down.

Probably just need people to believe long enough to buy the game Day 1.

I mean the game might be his project but if he's been fired or left and he's not getting paid still then I highly doubt he'd continue to work on it....especially if it's almost done.

_-EDMIX-_949d ago (Edited 949d ago ) are contracted out. They already paid the team and Kojima. At this point Kojima is just working freelance, but still got paid as again, its a contracted job, if anything they have deal in place to pay a certain amount when the game is complete.

I never heard anything about Kojima NOT working on MGSV....merely that it would be his last and he wasn't part of Konami anymore....

You can create a game and not be part of the company that owns the IP, it happens all the time. ie Bloodborne and Demon Souls....Sony owns the IP, they don't own FromSoftware, they contracted this team out to make those games, they are not Sony employees.

Its starting to sound like many people have assumptions regarding this based on actually not really knowing how the game industry works.

He can be fired from Konami and still be working on MGSV as a contractor.

... and he can't tell us this himself because...?
