Kojima’s new game canceled, Kojima not happy about it

It’s very rare to see Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima in low spirits, but the Japanese director has been taking the cancellation of a mystery project pretty damn badly. Apparently, he’s spent a year on an unannounced title, a year that’s now become “meaningless.”

“I can’t take it anymore; this is unbearable, I can’t stay positive,” Tweeted the developer. “The thing that I spent one year delicately preparing became meaningless.”

We don’t often see a developer candidly expressing his thoughts on a cancellation, but it goes without saying that it must be pretty horrible to go through after such a long time spent in development. I feel sorry for the poor guy.
