Kojima Productions was originally established as a subsidiary of Konami, but became a private company in 2015 so that Kojima could have full creative control over its games. The first game, “Death Stranding”, was released in 2019 and uses motion capture to bring Hollywood stars to life, including Norman Reedus, Margaret Qualley, Mads Mikkelsen, Troy Baker, Tommie Earl Jenkins, Lindsay Wagner, Nicolas Winding Refn, Guillermo Del Toro and Léa Seydoux. In Kojima’s cryptic tweet, a man is seen standing on a stool surrounded by crew members. The figure is intentionally indistinguishable, so we have no way of knowing who Kojima is working with on this new project. My money is on frequent collaborator Norman Reedus or Mads Mikkelsen, since Kojima love it so much.

Of course, now that “Death Stranding” has been out for over two years, Kojima is likely starting production on his next game, but the new line’s announcement mentioned that the studio was working on multiple properties. Kojima Productions Business Development Director Yoshiko Fukuda said, “Our new division will take the studio into even more areas that will showcase our creative stories beyond video games and open up ways for our fans to communicate and share. ‘immerse in these spaces’. Looks like “Death Stranding” extends beyond the video game. As for the medium that “Death Stranding” could reach next, we will just have to wait and see.
