Hideo Kojima Expresses Happiness Over Announcing Death Stranding Despite a “Tumultuous” Year

Hideo Kojima and Konami’s breakup saga has definitely taken its toll on the industry expert, however, Kojima is never going to give up that easily.

We are approaching the end of 2016, only one more day left to go, and Kojima thought this is the time to express his gratitude to his fans for being there. He also expressed his happiness in being able to establish his own studio, hiring personnel, begin working on a brand new title and announce it despite experiencing a “tumultuous year.”

The year of 2016 was such a tumultuous year. Establishing the studio, planning the new game, hiring crews, finding the new base & engine, casting, building the new spaceship Enterprise. Everything had to do at once but overall I’m glad that I could announce DEATH STRANDING.

We are definitely happy for Kojima and wish him all the best with Death Stranding.
