Kojima: "The thing" I've spent a year preparing is "meaningless"

Hideo Kojima has hinted at a potential cancellation from Kojima Productions, saying a "thing" that the Metal Gear Solid creator has spent the past year on has now become "meaningless".

"The thing that I spent one year delicately preparing became meaningless," he said in a tweet first on his Japanese Twitter, as translated by VG247 contributor Alex Donaldson, before being posted on his English Twitter.

He added before that: "I can't take it anymore; this is unbearable, I can't stay positive."

If a project inside Kojima Productions has been canned, it's unknown what said "thing' could be affected.

MGS: Rising or MGS 3DS? Very unlikely, gringo. NGP project? Again, unlikely: he's due to show it off next month in LA. His "devil project"? We haven't heard anything on that for a while. Zone of the Enders 3? Not even in development right now.

Watch for E3 or TGS to see if there's any clues as to what it might be.
