Silent Hill composer leaves Konami

Akira Yamaoka confirmed he has left Konami. No word yet on what he'll end up doing, and according to Square Enix Music Online it would be likely he'll end up a freelance composer like many before him (Norihiko Hibino, Yoko Shimomura and Yasunori Mitsuda to name a few). While this might be a loss for Konami, frankly Silent Hill hasn't been the same for a while. It will no doubt do him good to go freelance and get some different work. If he ceases game composition entirely however he will be sadly missed.1
