Kojima and Konami to reunite?

EA exectutive Peter Moore claims that Kojima will make amends with Konami.

Earlier this year, Metal Gear fans were worried that their beloved series might be in jeopardy when Hideo Kojima had apparently left or been fired from Konami. Dozens of Silent Hill fans were also let down when they learned that the upcoming game Silent Hills had been cancelled with its playable trailer being removed from the PlayStation Network. Fans wondered if the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain would turn out the same if the man who has directed the series since the first game was gone. We later learned that we could rest easy knowing that Kojima would finish The Phantom Pain before his departure.

However, Electronic Arts COO Peter Moore believe that this is not the end for the Kojima/Konami relationship. In an interview with GameSpot, he had this to say:

“I’ve always liked Kojima-san. I got on with him during my days at Microsoft. I just think… what’s going on there… I just think both of them should kiss and make up […] From my experience, and I’ve spent a lot of time working in Japan, I think that Konami and Kojima will figure it out. Those kinds of business relationships [in Japan] are typically for life, and Kojima is such an important part in what has gone on there.”

Unfortunately, Moore’s claim seems to be based in pure conjecture. We really have no concrete reason to believe that Kojima and Konami will “kiss and make up.” Even if they did, it is unlikely that Kojima will continure making games in the Metal Gear series. Then again, he has said this before… several times.
