Kojima only got a studio space post-Konami because the owners were Metal Gear fans

In a recent interview, Hideo Kojima revealed that after his split with Konami, he couldn’t get money or an office.

In a lengthy conversation with The Guardian (opens in new tab), the Metal Gear Solid creator revealed that after he split with Konami in 2015, he was put into a difficult position as an independent entity. He explains while trying to set up what is now Kojima Productions: “The bank wouldn’t lend me any money. And when I tried to lease a floor in this building, they told me that now I was independent. It was as if I had yet to create anything. That’s when I thought, ‘Oh, I really am indie.’
