It's been a while since we've heard anything about the convoluted Konami and Kojima situation that led to the removal of the Kojima Productions name from all Metal Gear Solid branding. While Kojima's name has been returned to Metal Gear Solid 5, a tweet from Akio Otskuka, Snake's Japanese voice actor, says that Kojima Productions as a whole has been "dissolved."
As reported and translated by Kotaku, Otskuka states “Kojima Productions got dissolved and due to the team’s hard effort, the game is just about finished. This is no exaggeration, but it’s bound to be a supreme masterpiece! I can’t help it if I want to say, ‘I kept you waiting.’ (lol) Even if this is the last time... MGS lives forever!”
Otskuka previously tweeted his support for Metal Gear Solid 5 and urged fans not to boycott it after US voice actress Donna Burke announced that Kojima had been fired from Konami. There has still been no official comment from Kojima or Konami on the situation but at least we've still got MGS 5 which clearly has Kojima all over it.
