Last week, Donna Burke, singer of the theme songs for Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, posted a tweet that suggested Konami had fired MGS creator Hideo Kojima following a fallout about his company and Konami. Konami responded soon afterwards by saying that her statements were “categorically incorrect,” and today Burket took to Facebook to apologize for her tweets and confirmed that “Konami is correct in that Kojima has not actually been fired.”
Konami is correct in that Kojima has not actually been fired. As I stated previously he and his team are still working hard on getting the game out. My sincere apologies to Konami, Hideo Kojima and the fans for giving the wrong impression.
I was trying to add my voice to Otsuka-san pleading with the fans to not abandon MGSV because of the stuff happening at Konami and to throw my support behind Kojima and everyone who has worked over the last five years and is working to make this game the greatest ever.
Hideo Kojima and Konami both recently confirmed that Kojima will be staying on while The Phantom Pain is in development, but it is not known what he will be doing after that.
