That's possible.... plus I hear Japanese companies like Konami aren't just involved in businesses of one particular type, so even if their game production dies they'll still have other things to fall back on.

But that doesn't make it less irritating to think that they've pretty much let this all happen.

That's kind of what I was getting at -- Konami doesn't really need him, but in recent years they've been acting like they do, especially since having his name attached to a project in any capacity tends to get lots of attention.

So I'm tending to think that it's a good thing they both part ways. Kojima can get to whatever other projects he wants to do (because I'd hate to see him be known just for Metal Gear, even though he's already done other works besides that), and maybe his absence will light a fire under Konami to start working again on their other series that people really like.

Exactly. In the past ten years or so, they could've been continuing on and further developing all these other great series without Kojima being a part of them, and instead put far too much faith in him to keep their company going. So with all that pressure being placed just on his shoulders, I can understand why he'd want to step away and start following his own interests again. And if Phantom Pain turns out to be the last MG game ever, I'm actually fine with that.

So it Konami shuts down with game production, as sad as it'll be, they kind of dug their own hole.

The speculation seems to be that Konami's making a quiet and awkwardly slow pulling-away from making games.

But to be fair, not every game Kojima's involved in is golden... to my mind, anyway. Let's just say I was really unimpressed by the direction that Castlevania went in with the Lords of Shadow games, and I want to say Kojima had a hand in those. I could be wrong, though... but I still don't like Lords of Shadow. xP
