Konami Suspends Kojima Station Broadcast; Fans Asked to Support Metal Gear Solid V’s Developers
With the sweeping changes within Konami and Kojima Productions, many wondered what would happen to tomorrow’s Kojima Station‘s Broadcast, and in a series of Tweets on the new Japanese Metal Gear account, we got an answer.
The tweets thank the viewers for enjoying Kojima Station, and apologize for suspending tomorrow’s broadcast due to the circumstances, promising to provide further info at a later date on when the next livestream will be.
In addition to that, the team thanks the fans for the encouragement received and again, apologizes for the concerns caused, and for the fact that they cannot respond to everyone individually on Twitter.
We also learn that due to the internal reorganization that shifted control to Konami’s headquarters, names and logo for Kojima Productions have been removed, but despite that Kojima himself and the original members of the development team are still at work on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
The game’s official SNS account has also been changed to a new one, but it’s handled by the same people as before, and they will continue to provide information as usual. The same goes for the new Twitter account.
Lastly, production of the game is continuing in earnest according to the idea and instructions of Kojima-san, in order to deliver the large open world promised to the fans. The development team and Hideo Kojima are united in this purpose, and would like the warm support of their fans.
It’s hard not to wonder about what happened between Konami and Kojima Productions, but Hideo Kojima and his team have provided us with decades of entertainment. Personally, I still can’t wait to play The Phantom Pain and to see what they’ll do next.
