The new studio will once again be called Kojima Productions, and he’s already in the works with Sony on a PlayStation 4 exclusive, as announced by Sony Computer Entertainment.
“PlayStation’s history is one of game innovation and great new franchises,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc, in a release. “Hideo Kojima has been a huge part of that history, and we are therefore delighted that he has chosen to bring his brand new project to life in partnership with PlayStation. We look forward to working with him on an exciting new game and warmly welcome him to the PlayStation family.”
“I will be taking on a new challenge by establishing my own independent studio, and I am thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with PlayStation, who I have continued to work with all these past years,” said Hideo Kojima, game designer, Kojima Productions. “I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise.”
Kojima further confirmed his departure from the brand through a statement on Twitter, claiming that 15 December was his final day. He’s even come up with a brand new logo , and is apparently advertising some jobs as well.
We’re pretty sure whatever Kojima’s cooking up, it’s going to be epic.
