In a recent interview with Gamespot, EA chief operating officer Peter Moore put in his two cents about Hideo Kojima’s troubled relationship with Konami. When asked if EA might try to bring Kojima in to the fold, Moore commented that the type of relationship Kojima had with Konami are usually lifelong, and that they should just “kiss and make up”.
Many have speculated on if EA would attempt to pick up Kojima after the companies recent appropriation of many big talents in the industry, including Uncharted writer Amy Henig to work on a new Star Wars game, as well as Assasin’s Creed co-creator Jade Raymond to head a new studio in Montreal.
Hideo Kojima and Konami had falling out several months back, possibly over employee status of Kojima Productions at Konami. Konami has already erased most Kojima Productions artwork and promotional material from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
