Seems like news revolving around Hideo Kojima and his new ventures with Sony won’t stop coming. If having a new game in the works, slated for a PS4 and PC release, wasn’t enough, Kojima announced in an interview with IGN that the newly formed Kojima Productions won’t just be making games.
In regards to his next, still-unannounced project, Kojima said it will be something that “people expect, but at the same time will have something new that people haven’t seen before.” With the developer specifically noting it will be a “complete game.”
Kojima — along with longtime producer Kenichiro Imaizumi and artist Yoji Shinkawa — made a point of saying that there were possible future projects that would move beyond the sphere of games.
“The focus is on digital content, so we could consider movies, animations, anything,” Kojima told IGN. “But first I think people expect games from me. That’s where I want to put my focus. Once we have an established IP in games, something solid that satisfies people, then we can consider movies and videos.”
Kojima also reiterated that he’s still interested in working with his Silent Hills partner Guillermo del Toro, whether the project be a game, film, anime, or some other medium.
Kojima and Shinkawa talk more about the foundation of the new studio, its logo and fan appreciation in IGN’s interview.
