Hideo Kojima is no longer with Konami and that is why he has all the freedom he needs for Death Stranding development. Working with Sony, and in a studio that is not registered in the stock market, Hideo Kojima has no worries for the investors as well.

Kojima recently spoke in an interview to discuss the same topic and stated the following:

I have more freedom now because the final decision comes down to me. This company is not listed on the stock exchange so we don’t need to worry about pleasing investors. We can just concentrate on making good games

Hideo Kojima is now the head of Kojima Productions and his team mostly consists off former members of Kojima’ development team. Hideo Kojima is hiring his team that helped him with Metal Gear Solid over the years.

When Hideo Kojima left he didn’t leave alone; many of the leading talent at Konami parted ways and jumped ship with Kojima. Yoji Shinkawa left with producer Ken-Ishiro Imaizumi, and ex-Konami Europe boss Shinji Hirano. However, they are not the only ones. Recently, Shinji Hirano, the former President of Konami Europe also left the building.

Now, a major part of Konami’s video game development division has left and joined Hideo Kojima’s Kojima Productions. Akio Sakamoto, a major part of FOX Engine’s creation, has left Konami. Chihoko Uchiyama, the senior character designer at Konami has also left the studio to join Kojima.

Death Stranding development is going smoothly as far as we know. The game is set to release sometime before 2019 on PlayStation 4. There are rumors of a PC version but we don’t see it happening.
