It'll be interesting to see how the fans interpret this news.
According to a Twitter update from Kojima Productions producer Kenichiro Imaizumi (as translated at Andriasang ), the team has replaced the producer for Metal Gear Solid: Rising . It had been Shigenobu Matsuyama but now, Yuji Korekado has taken his place.
Why? We have no idea. All we know is that Matsuyama has "moved to a different division." Kojima recently referred to Korekado as "the person in charge of Rising ," which was a little confusing at the time, but now we understand the comment. Kojima also said he'd be revealing "the truth" about Metal Gear Solid: Rising at the Spike TV Video Game Awards on December 10. If you add all this together, it may appear as if the game is facing some design or production changes…
Replacing a producer isn't exactly unprecedented, but it's definitely worth noting. Could mean something, could mean nothing.
