Tencent has snagged away one of the founding members of Kojima Productions. I say, goddamn! The monolith is clearly taking this gaming shit seriously.
Peak Kojima: having an official mascot for his production house. Peakier Kojima: selling said mascot as a fucking $2,000 statue.
Hideo Kojima took to TGS to elaborate about his next title, his first title, with the new Kojima Productions, not to be confused with the old Kojima Productions. The game? Death Stranding. The premise-plot-mechanics?
Of course, of course Kojima Productions will have their own official log sequence. Of course, of course they’d release it before they even have any game content, or even a game engine.
It appears that Kojima Productions continuing to roll out its logo art is actually Kojima Productions continuing to roll out looks at its first game’s main character. At least, that’s my take.
Hideo Kojima, as the title tells ya, isn’t making a new game engine for his next game, the first under his new studio. While there isn’t any denying that the Fox Engine fucking rips, it also took the dude and his squad forever to create. Kojima knows this, and also knows that “forever to create” thing would undermine his other goal: to get his first title out under the Kojima Productions banner more quickly than usual.
Official: Hideo Kojima forms new gaming studio, ‘Kojima Productions’, working on a PS4 console exclusive
Hideo Kojima has formed a new gaming studio! With the same name as his old gaming studio! And this new studio? Working on a PS4 console exclusive.
What has long been anything but confirmed has now been confirmed. Hideo Kojima has officially left (or is it “left”?) Konami. But don’t look for him to sit around on his ass long, as his non-compete expires in December. Any thoughts as to where he goes? What he does next?
