Gamespot has reported that Konami and Hideo Kojima's Kojima Productions are going to part ways soon.
"After we finish MGSV, Mr. Kojima and upper management will leave Konami. They said their contract ends in December," says Gamespot's source.

And finally, Gamespot then reported that, "Kojima, now 51, joined Konami in 1986. His departure from the company will bring an end to nearly three decades of service.

Meanwhile, Kojima Productions' branding has also been removed from Twitter, the official Metal Gear website, and even the LA office listing."
