Metal Gear Solid: Rising Producer Replaced

Posted on November 17, 2011 AT 06:41am

THE BUZZ: Metal Gear Solid: Rising producer Shigenobu Matsuyama has stepped down from his post Kojima Productions, producer Kenichiro Imaizumi has confirmed.

He has been replaced by veteran Konami programmer Yuji Korekado who will act as sole producer on the title. The game is set to appear at the Spike VGAs next month.

EGM’s TAKE: Losing a producer this far into the project will be a blow for the team, and could mean the project isn’t shaping up as well as it could. Fortunately, his replacement is more than capable of filling the roll.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
