Donna Burke Claims Konami Fired Hideo Kojima; Konami Refutes

/ 2 years ago


Donna Burke, voice actor on three Metal Gear Solid games, has claimed on Twitter that Konami has indeed fired Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, seemingly confirming months of speculation.

Burke, who provided the vocals for the song Heavens Divide from Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and voiced the iDroid in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, had earlier tweeted a link to an article in which Akio Otsuka, the Japanese voice actor for Snake, implored fans not to cancel pre-orders of the game over the Kojima debacle:

However, Konami told that Burke’s claims are “categorically untrue”. The company released a vague statement last month, citing “change[s] in production organization of all of Konami” for Kojima being removed as a Konami Executive.
