We're all living in a post-Death Stranding
world - one of 2019's most divisive games
. Also, one of the year's most original and striking visions. In the latest issue of Japanese publication Famitsu, as part of deep dive into Kojima Productions
- studio leads Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa open up about future projects.
And as always Kojima is his usual ambitious self - with both talented creators toying with the idea of creating a Manga series. On the account of it being a lot easier to get off the ground than a AAA-sized game project. Naturally, going small is something a lot of developers talk about off the back of a huge project - which in the case of Death Stranding was roughly a four year development cycle. In the Famitsu interview Kojima expressed interest (or renewed interest) in making movies - something that he would no doubt excel at.
In terms of games, Kojima Productions plans to get working on another big game - ala Death Stranding, but also focus on smaller projects. Shorter games, potential episodic releases, to get out there as the next multi-year thing takes shape. With Manga, films, and multiple games swirling in the minds of the team at Kojima Productions the big takeaway is that the studio is still full of creative ambition.
Death Stranding is currently available on PlayStation 4, with its PC port still on track for 2020.
