The new team will be using games in other pop culture areas.
Death Stranding maker Kojima Productions announced they are launching a new division focused on music, TV, and film. The new studio, based in Los Angeles, California, will be using the game studio's games in other pop culture areas. The press release states the team will be led by Riley Russell, who previously worked 28 years at PlayStation in various roles, including the chief legal officer, plus VP 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," said Russell. "The team has as its charter, the goal of expanding the reach and awareness of the properties now under development at Kojima Productions and to make them, even more, a part of our popular culture. Although we are a global organization, the new business development team will be centered in Los Angeles, CA. We are truly excited and looking forward to working with the very best entertainment talent we can, across all of the entertainment industries."
"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," noted Kojima Productions' business development manager Yoshiko Fukuda.
