Work on Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is "nearly complete", and as a result the developers at Kojima Productions have "disbanded," this according to Akio Otsuka, the Japanese voice actor who plays Solid Snake.

Over on Twitter (and via Gematsu) Otsuka said: "Kojima Productions was forced to disband, but it appears that the work that the team has been putting their utmost effort into is nearly complete. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I expect it will become their greatest masterpiece. I couldn't help it. I just wanted to say ‘Kept you waiting, huh?' (Laughs.) But even if this is the end, Metal Gear Solid is immortal!"

There's very little official word coming out of the studio or Konami at the moment, so it's impossible to verify the exact situation and confirm what's happening. One thing we do know is that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is launching on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on September 1.
