Kojima Productions Launches A Multimedia Division

The Kojima Productions studio, known for creating Death Stranding, now has a division to focus on other entertainment industry segments, including film, TV, and music.


Kojima Productions announced on Twitter that they have a new business division in Los Angeles, California. It will explore opportunities in entertainment beyond video games, including film, television, and music. This new division is helmed by Riley Russell, who has been a Sony-veteran, as he practically spent all his time there since the formation of Sony Computer Entertainment, the predecessor to Sony Interactive Entertainment. Russell spent 28 years (!!!) there as a chief legal officer and the vice president of business affairs.

“The new division will be tasked with working with creative and talented professionals in television, music, and film, as well as the more familiar games industry. The team has, as its charter, the goal of expanding the reach and awareness of the properties now under development at Kojima Productions, making them a part of our popular culture even more. Although we are a global organization, the new business development team will be centred in Los Angeles, California. We are truly excited and looking forward to working with the very best entertainment talent we can, across all of the entertainment industries,” Russell told Gamesindustry.

“Finding new ways to entertain, engage, and offer value to our fans is essential in a fast-moving, ever-changing storytelling world. Our new division will take the studio into even more areas that present our creative narratives beyond videogames and to open up ways for our fans to communicate and immerse themselves in these spaces,” Kojima Productions business development manager Yoshiko Fukuda added.

Don’t be surprised if Kojima Productions will suddenly announce a TV adaptation of Death Stranding. And the studio wouldn’t even have to look for an actor to be in Sam Bridges’ role, as Norman Reedus from the game (being responsible for the character’s face, voice, and even the motion capture!) would fit the bill.

Anikó, our news editor and communication manager, is more interested in the business side of the gaming industry. She worked at banks, and she has a vast knowledge of business life. Still, she likes puzzle and story-oriented games, like Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments, which is her favourite title. She also played The Sims 3, but after accidentally killing a whole sim family, swore not to play it again. (For our office address, email and phone number check out our IMPRESSUM)
