I find something deeply sad about this.

Rumours are of a boardroom feud and the man is gone :-|

Konami have already stated that Metal Gear will continue after he has gone, he's staying on to finish the latest MGS for a September release and will be gone by Xmas. :-(

It sad....
Konami must be off their fucking heads, without that man, they don't really have much.

Plus I can't imagine him ever finding a publisher that will give him creative freedom. He's no doubt and 'auteur' of the gaming world and probably full on to work with. I can't imagine him working to deadlines and budgets, just creating.

On the plus side, it will be interesting to see what Kojima makes outside of the MGS umbrella, but it's without doubt the end of an era. I don't go in for 'Kojima's a genius' spiel, but he's a fucking great and I do love his work.

Any thoughts?

Well he's not a podcast legend and I bet he doesn't have a book of 'funnies'.......

I bet he's absolutely batshit though. He seems like an absolute crazy!

The man does get results with his games though, he's the only reason Konami are still afloat and their MGS stuff without him might just sink them.

Can I be the the first to say "Meh"

After MGS 4 he should've been shot anyway, that wasn't a game it was a vanity project.

Will be a big loss for the Metal Gear series.
I am sure there will be a number of takers willnig to offer him plenty of money to work for them, but like you say they will want tight deadlines and control over what he does. Unless he goes it alone somehow.

He has made some of the best games....ever!
