Hideo Kojima’s new horizons in 2022
Speaking to Famitsu, Kojima explains that he wants to take 2022 as the beginning of a new stage in parallel to the video game. “We would like this year to take us a step further in other media and expressions other than video games, towards a near future where the frontiers of entertainment disappear.”

It will be a year in which these changes can be clearly seen ”. He also wants to regain “the flexible, communicative and fast pace of studio production” that existed before the pandemic.

Kojima Productions has not exactly been stopped in this 2021 nearing conclusion. Last September we saw the arrival of Death Stranding Director’s Cut, a compilation of well-known and unreleased content dedicated to PS5 from the original title published on PS4 and PC.
