If he was barely or not involved with it, he'd have no say over its development. That's all on Konami and Hijinx, not him, no matter how close he is to the original games. He can speak for himself, but I want to say he probably had his hands full with pushing Downpour out the door and continuing along with Book of Memories.
It still doesn't excuse the fact that he was the senior associate producer and he didn't AT LEAST check in on the project.
And i also find it interesting that he also did a walkthrough-preview a while before the release of the collection but still didn't acknowledge the issues.
