There is currently a rumor floating around that Chinese media and internet company Tencent is attempting to hire Hideo Kojima.

Tencent, which has stakes in Epic Games, Riot Games, GLU mobile, and more, apparently wants Kojima to help develop new IPs, and is already in negotiations with him. Neither Kojima or Tencent has verified the information yet, so take this with a grain of salt.

After the news that Kojima split with Konami first broke, Deck 13, the developer of Lords of the Fallen, also offered a job to Kojima, saying that they would hire him as Head of Games Design. It will be interesting to see if Tencent is actually in talks with Kojima, and if he will take the job.
