Note: Peace Walker released one year ago, so anything he was making game wise would presumably have been in development for a year.

Note 2: The Kojima/Suda51 adventure game also started one year ago: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=401476

I can't take it anymore (this is unbearable), I can't say positive.

It sounds like Konami rejected the prototype he'd been working on for a year.

Kojima jumping ship announcement incoming soon.

If it's something outside of the MGS universe then screw Konami, this is why we can't have good things.

If it was another mgs title then meh whatever. He probably has 3 others greenlit anyways.

I have always seen it reasonable for Kojima to head his own independent studio. Probably inevitable.

Could be, he'd take half of the company with him and sign with Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, EA, Activision or Zenimax for infinite money.

This is along the lines of what i was thinking, also
I think he'd be pretty positive about more people playing his game. Shit gets cancelled all the time but he 'cannot be positive' so whatever it is it must've hit him pretty hard.

If that's the case, Sony need to swoop the fuck in and put him in charge of game development at a newly created Japanese studio.

The PSP remasters announcement ruined his surprise of peace walker coming to ps3
He seems too disappointed for it to be related to that. This does sound like it's related to the taboo project. The way he's talked about it made it sound like some game that was really ouT, so it wouldn't be too shocking if Konami didn't greenlight it

"The project plan still hasn't reached a detailed level, but everything is advancing simultaneously in my head. Title, game design, story, characters, setting research, the mech that appear, casting, graphic direction, sound, beginning and ending, the major story sequences. It comes together naturally in my head."
"The next project will challenge a certain type of taboo," he wrote. "If I mess up, I'll probably have to leave the industry. However, I don't want to pass by avoiding that. I turn 47 this year. It's been 24 years since I started making games. Today, I got an ally who would happily support me in that risk. Although it's just one person. For a start, it's good." Kojima has since offered no other details about the project through his Twitter feed (though he apparently did have Chinese food for lunch).

This definitely sounds negative, but Kojima has always been extremely coy and well media-trained and has total knowledge of the implications of everything he says, so I don't imagine he would drop a bomb like this through Twitter, no matter how bummed out he may be. Also, the fact that this was posted on his English Twitter account, not just the personal Japanese account that I believe he runs himself, makes me think that Konami or someone in his PR department must have vetted the tweet before sending it out. I'm really hoping he didn't waste a year of his life on a project that will never see the light of day.

Maybe he was working on a PS3 version of Peace Walker and now Konami decided to release the game as a PSP remastered version?
If he was making an extended version with extra content for NGP/PS3 I can see the Remaster announcement messing up their plans. But surely Sony would have filled Konami in on this a long time ago?
