He also told The Business Insider that the matter is being investigated by the Italian police. Hideo Kojima or Konami hasn’t spoken about this controversy while the future of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain hangs in line. Meanwhile, it’s worth recollecting that Hideo Kojima teased fans about the upcoming game featuring a certain taboo but an ally has been found who would definitely support him with that risk.
On the other hand, 2015 has been a rather uneventful year for Konami. The Japanese developer made headlines in the last few months, featuring the disturbed relationship between experienced developer Hideo Kojima and others involved with the company’s financial outlook. Earlier, on 31st March, gamers witnessed the Silent Hills/PT Website removing the Kojima Productions Logo. Konami did the same for Metal Gear Solid V websites, earlier in the same month.
On 26th April, Konami announced that the Silent Hills playable trailer would be officially removed from the PlayStation Store on Wednesday. People are wondering if the game will remain playable for people who have already downloaded its free version. Fans were really excited about Silent Hills since it would have featured Norman Reedus and Guillermo Del Toro being directed by Hideo Kojima. Although the game has been cancelled, Konami declared that it will continue the development in the Silent Hills franchise.
Stay tuned for the latest updates on Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain!
