    Default Did Metal Gear Solid 5 Ground Zeroes Hint at Kojima’s Split With Konami?

    Now this is just eerie as hell.
    If you weren’t aware, Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima and Konami aren’t going through the best of times. The former is leaving the publisher later this year according to reports and the latter has been working hard to snuff out any mention of the designer’s efforts in the franchise, including removing his name from box art for Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.


    However, it seems like Kojima was aware of his imminent split from Konami. YouTube user TimeSplitter88 uploaded a video showcasing the Deja Vu mission from Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (released early last year). During this mission, Snake comes across logos for various Kojima and non-Kojima directed Metal Gear Solid games. If he shines a light on the Kojima games, then the logo disappears. Non-Kojima games stay in place, as if hinting at a future where Konami would try to wipe out Kojima’s involvement in the franchise.

    There’s also a special message from Kaz at the end which states, “You might be able to erase the marking, but the memories will never disappear.”

    Like we said, eerie as hell.

    Surprisingly straight in the feels.....

    I like that line "thank you for all your support"

    Most likely he's put in similar hidden messages in the Phantom Pain, and with this making the news now I wonder how paranoid Konami might become about what might be hidden in the game... Should we be worried about them cancelling the entire game this close to release out of fear of embarrassment? [emoji14]
