Hideo Kojima May No Longer Be Working on Silent Hills, But Goat Simulator is Giving Him a Thank You Credit Anyway

Following a turbulent past few weeks between Konami and Hideo Kojima and unclear answers of his departure from the company, sadly one of the most unfortunate casualties of the falling out turned out to be Silent Hills, the highly-anticipated co-production between Kojima and Guillermo del Toro that was cancelled by Konami last week. Although Kojima may no longer be credited for the title, he is getting his due credit somewhere else – for Goat Simulator, of all things.

A post on the official Facebook page for Goat Simulator shows that the game’s development team, Coffee Stain Studios, has included a small token of thanks to Hideo Kojima by posting a screenshot of a revised credits list for Goat Simulator. The team explained in the post of its photo:

“We heard that Hideo Kojima was removed from the credits for Metal Gear Solid 5 so we added him to the credits for Goat Simulator.”

“You’re always welcome to work with us Kojima!”

Included in the game’s new credits is an “Extra Special Thanks” section to Hideo Kojima and his team at Kojima Productions, alongside another fun (but not exactly subtle) note about Silent Hills and to “please bring it back…pretty please?”

Goat Simulator is currently available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android.
