Kojima Productions was dissolved, says Snake voice actor

Hideo Kojima’s famous Kojima Productions may have been ‘dissolved’, if claims from a voice actor are correct.

“Kojima Productions got dissolved,” the Japanese voice of Solid Snake Akio Otsuka said, as reported by Kotaku.

“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!”

The site notes that the word used was ‘kaisan’, which can also mean ‘break-up’.

This isn’t the first time a voice actor has made a claim about the Kojima saga. In April voice actress Donna Burke claimed that Konami had “fired” Kojima, although she withdrew the claim shortly after.

The specifics of the fall-out between Konami and Kojima Productions remain unknown.
