It’s Official, Kojima’s Next Game Will Be PS4 Exclusive

Hideo Kojima’s newly formed Kojima Productions studio has signed a deal with Sony so that their first game will be console exclusive to PlayStation 4.

“I will be taking on a new challenge by establishing my own independent studio, and I am thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with PlayStation, who I have continued to work with all these past years,” said Hideo. “I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise.”

Obviously the game will not be another Metal Gear Solid, but that’s probably for best and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with. Oh, and can someone give Del Toro a call please?

  1. Best. Christmas. Present. Ever.

  2. OK, wow, that was quick, I guess it was right about Kojima only just officially leaving Konami. I’m sure where he is now he’ll be given full creative freedom.

    • That’d be pretty dangerous me thinks. At Konami he was clearly given too much freedom, which ultimately gave him more than enough rope to hang himself… many of these “artsy” types often have little business sense – hence why he was arranging for a ton of content development (or rework) only for it to be discarded later because he didn’t like it or had since changed his mind. That naturally has a huge impact on budgets and schedules so it’s no wonder he got the chop in the end.

      Although it’s not clear how much Sony will be funding the new title I only hope that they keep him on a tight leash with well defined milestones and penalties for missing them which might keep him on the straight and narrow. Don’t fancy their chances mind…

    • Hey won’t be. He will join Quantic Dream, Team Ico, and That Game Company in the “Do what you want and give it to us when it’s ready” pile of studios. Whilst it may take them forever to generate a game, whenever they do produce something it’s usually hugely unique and ground breaking. It’s something Sony do really well, and personally id rather have that than a stream of endless shooters churned out annually.

      • And it is usually worth the risk for Sony despite having cash issues for the past few years. (I think). It also helps the market appeal of the Playstation brand by having a lot of creative directors on board and allowed to do what they do best. Except Team Ico. The Last Guardian won’t ever be seen until 2090 just after the launch of PS90000-54B edition.

  3. Whatever it is, it’ll be exciting to see. Although it’ll be years until we get our hands on it.

  4. Yay! I love how there is no game yet, well there might be but this story is basically Sony saying if Konami doesn’t want him then Kojima can join our roster of well loved game creating heroes. Gotta catch em all!

  5. So much yes :D

  6. Huzzah! I’m looking forward to seeing what he is working on next.

  7. I hope he trolls Konami at least a little with the new game. It should have collectibles which are pages from his diary during his leaving Konami.

  8. Is it a PS4 Exclusive or Playstation Exclusive..?

    I’m not in to the VR thing.. but some Kojima love for the Vita would be welcome..

  9. Andrew House’s enthusiasm, at the end of the video, is so wonderful that I’m sitting here grinning for him as well. :-)

    • Its such a “hahaha fuck you microsoft” grin :)

  10. It’s also coming to PC so not really much of a PS exclusive

    • There is nothing about it in the video nor the article, and they reported it as a collaboration with Sony, so where do you get that idea? Have you read it somewhere that it’s coming to pc as well?

      • Yes I read the Q&A they did, it’s eventually coming to PC also, starts out as a PS exclusive then comes to PC

    • “console exclusive to PlayStation 4” says the text :)

      • PC is not a console.

      • Yes exactly. the only console its coming out on – so exclusive in the world of consoles – is PS4. “Console exclusive” is industry standard terms for “One console plus PC”
