Donna Burke, the voice of iDroid in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and the upcoming Phantom Pain installment, has stated that series creator Hideo Kojima was fired by Konami.

“Yes don’t throw away the Kojima teams work over the last 5 years because upper management fired a genius,” Burke tweeted earlier today.

Replying to others from her account, she categorically confirmed that Konami has let him go. While she didn’t clarify as to why Kojima was fired, she believes that the story behind the nature of his departure is large enough to be covered by Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair.

She also affirmed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is currently going through vigorous testing and is being polished for release.

In response to her claims, a Konami representative has stated that the term fired is “categorically incorrect”.

For weeks now, the web has been rummaging through rumors and speculations about Kojima departing Konami following the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain this September. It was also discovered that the publisher has removed the developer’s name and the Kojima Productions’ logo from recent Metal Gear Solid branding.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be releasing on September 1 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. The PC version will arrive a week later.
