Kojima explained his reasoning in a recent exclusive interview with IGN. It all boils down to familiarity. “We know each other well,” he says. “I feel like this is an environment where I will be able to make something and feel comfortable.” Considering what he went through at Konami, I’m sure really appreciates that feeling.
Hideo Kojima has developed a strong bond with Sony for over a decade now. He even mentions the trust he has developed with Sony over the years and how they have helped him with his global recognition. “With Sony PlayStation, they make their content globally. It’s thanks to Sony that I was able to make a splash in the global market.”
Check out the interview below to hear Kojima speak on it himself.
Kojima officially left Konami this past Wednesday. His new company, Kojima Productions, is already underway and he has confirmed that he is working on a new exclusive project for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
