The renewal of the calendar year is always an opportunity to teaser, an exercise in which the eponymous founder of Kojima Productions has long been a master.
Like most Japanese developers, the young studio Kojima Productions took advantage of the Western calendar renewal to display via the weekly Famitsu its plans for the year 2022, and look back on the successes of the previous one:
Although 2021 was still a very difficult year for us, we were able to deliver Death Stranding Director’s Cut safely to PS5 even in this COVID-19 situation, even as we prepared and experimented with new titles.
Thank you. Thank you very much.
Kojima, a radical dreamer
But because life is not only made of re-releases and other rehashes, the young Tokyo studio is already looking towards the future, and Sieur Kojima to promise as usual great and beautiful things for the post-Death Stranding. The reverse would have surprised us.
This year I’m going to start a new project and take it to the next level of experimentation with a radical project in earnest. I also hope to get the film crew up and running. And I could start to embark on another radio project.
For Kojima Productions, the year 2022 will therefore be very busy, since the new division responsible for producing films announced in 2019 should therefore begin its march, on the principle that “if you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well. “, of the Kojima in the text, obviously.
But the question everyone is asking is obviously about the creator’s next game with glasses., since would the five million copies of Death Stranding be such as to start a new episode, as actor Norman Reedus potentially suggested this summer, or would Kojima’s “radical” project necessarily involve developing a new license? We’ll leave it up to you to discuss this possibility in the comments below. Your keyboards !
