MGS 5: The Phantom Pain Not a Hideo Kojima Game?

A NeoGAF post here has pointed out an interesting new twist in the saga of Konami VS. Hideo Kojima. New box art for the anticipated fall release of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain will not bear the classic “A Hideo Kojima Game” text. 

The fires of this mysterious story had been stoked earlier in the week when the Japanese voice actor for Solid Snake, Akio Otsuka, tweeted about Kojima Productions having been “dissolved.”

In March, IGN interviewed Kojima and he confirmed that this will be the end of the series which he has “personally designed and produced.” He has said this before, but the evidence seems to really be pointing towards a Kojima-less Metal Gear series if Konami indeed will continue with the franchise.
