Hideo Kojima Reforms an Independent Kojima Productions, Developing PS4 Console Exclusive

Following yesterday’s announcement that Metal Gear series creator Hideo Kojima has left Konami and entered final negotiations with Sony, we’ve learned the boss and his new adventure has developed even further.

Both the newly formed (and independent) Kojima Productions and Sony Computer Entertainment have reached an agreement to develop the studio’s first game as a console exclusive, on PlayStation 4 (Editor’s Note: it’s coming to PC after PlayStation 4, although details are currently scant).

Featured above, you can view a video with both Hideo Kojima and Sony’s Andrew House talking up the new partnership. The company even has a new logo:

“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 Kojima in a press release. “I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise.”

“PlayStation(R)’s history is one of game innovation and great new franchises,” said Andrew House, President and Global CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. “Hideo Kojima has been a huge part of that history, and we are therefore delighted that he has chosen to bring his brand new project to life in partnership with PlayStation. We look forward to working with him on an exciting new game and warmly welcome him to the PlayStation family.”
