JunkerHQ, The Snake Soup, and others have reported it. The news comes from the Japanese voice actor of Snake, Akio Otsuka on Twitter. The translation is a farewell to Kojima Productions and a promotion of MGSV as their greatest work yet.
Some people were hopeful that the display of the Kojima Productions logo in the recent E3 trailer was proof that the company would be allowed to exist, but obviously that’s not the case.
It’s looking very unlikely that the “trolling theory” can still hold weight now, despite the outrageous level of coincidence and parallel with the themes of MGSV and its early marketing stunts. Truly, we have to wonder what it all means, and how much decision Kojima himself had in it.
