Hideo Kojima will not be at E3

Fumito Ueda is not alone. Metal Gear creator and Kojima Productions boss Hideo Kojima will not be attending E3 this year.

The announcement was made on Twitter. According to Andriasang, his wording made it seem as if he initially intended on going.

That doesn’t mean there will be a lack of Kojima news, however. Kojima Productions has ‘several announcements‘ planned for Konami’s June 2 pre-E3 media briefing, and 8-4’s Mark MacDonald has just completed an interview with him.

Stay tuned.
