Former Konami President Shinji Hirano Now President Of New Kojima Productions

This just gets more and more interesting.

The Konami and Hideo Kojima split is one of the most publicized, acrimonious split ups in the history of the industry, if not the most acrimonious one, and every time we think we are running out of things to discuss pertaining to it, we get something new to talk about.

Take, for instance, the new, coming from The Koalition, who noticed that former Konami president Shinji Hirano is now listed as the President of the newly formed Kojima Productions. While having someone like Hirano on board is great for Kojima, I do have to wonder about non compete and non poaching agreements that are usually standard when a high ranking employee leaves a company- would this not be in contravention of those?

It will be interesting to see how Konami reacts to this, if they react at all. Kojima Productions is currently working on Death Stranding, the excellently cerebral looking game currently due for a release on PS4 and PC.
