Metal Gear Survive Developer Implements Kojima Easter Egg

In what looks like a stunt ripped straight out of a movie a developer (or developers) who worked on Metal Gear Survive have implemented an Easter egg that straight up roasts Konami.
At the start of the game a list is shown after entering the desired name for your character. Look further down the list and you’ll see a tribute to Hideo Kojima:
The names Hungry Komododragon, Black Jackal and Thunder Parrot spell out KJP which is a reference to Hideo’s Kojima new studio named Kojima Productions. The next few surnames spell out FOREVER. Another (and more clear) reference is the last two names, BASTARD YOTA and CUNNING YUJI referring to Metal Gear Survive’s director Yota Tsutsumizaki and producer Yuji Korekado. Notice how both of them are listed as AWOL.
Kojima left Konami before the release of Metal Gear Solid V in 2015. As a result he was banned from receiving the award for best action/adventure:
Metal Gear Survive is out now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
