Former Konami President Takes New Job – As President of Kojima Productions

Having previously headed up Konami Europe, Shinji Hirano is now taking the helm at Kojima Productions. With no official statement being released, the news was actually discovered on LinkedIn – where Hirano now lists his new position, alongside this job description:

Responsible for managing extremely talented creative teams as one single entity and providing the leadership to make company successful as one of the greatest creative studios in the world.

And he’s not the only Konami veteran to make it onto Kojima Productions’ team: they also scooped up ex Konami concept artist Yoji Shinkawa and producer Kenichiro Imaizumi earlier in 2016, as well as Jackie Tan – level designer on Metal Gear Solid 5 – and Ayako Terishima.

With his Metal Gear Solid 5 team behind him, it seems that Hideo Kojima will remain a force to be reckoned with, despite parting ways with Konami back in 2015.
