At the end of last year Hideo Kojima confirmed that his studio, Kojima Productions, is working on two video game projects. Of one of them he said that it was bigger, while he defined the other as “new and challenging”. Now, in an interview with a radio station, he has given new details about the first, saying that it will be a blockbuster that will attract everyone.
During the interview, which has been partially transcribed by
Genki and Twitter, Kojima has specified that the large project they are working on will be attractive to all audiences: “A great triple A game everyone will say they want to play it. “It is not a particularly illuminating clue, but at least now we know that it will be a game for the general public.
Others points Kojima said are that they don’t have enough staff and are having difficulty recruiting new staff from abroad due to the worldwide pandemic. Plus his LA production studio are making drama, film and anime! All rough translation*— Genki ✨ (@Genki_JPN) January 6, 2022
Kojima Productions does not have enough employees, according to Kojima
The Japanese designer has also said in the same interview that Kojima Productions is currently having trouble finding employees due to the coronavirus pandemic that has affected the production rates of all international industries. The company would be having problems with the number of workers, according to Hideo Kojima himself, who assures that they don’t have enough developers.
On the other hand, he explained that the studio that Kojima Productions has opened in Los Angeles under the command of PlayStation veteran Riley Russell, is currently working on both movies and anime. Recently Kojima himself assured that his next game will blur the line between different media, something that could lead to collaborations between these two divisions of the company.
