Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions will be working directly alongside Sony for the creation of their new game.
Kojima has said he is “thrilled to embark on creating a new franchise,” hinting that this may be a long term deal between the two parties.
The developer revealed in a tweet yesterday that his contract with Konami has officially ended, making this the perfect time to announce a new partnership.
Kojima’s new studio is called Kojima Productions, the very same name it had back at Konami.
The studio includes members who worked on a number of Metal Gear Solid titles, many of which were also Playstation exclusives.

We know very little about Kojima’s new game, other than the studio behind it and its PS4 exclusivity.
It could be something in a similar vein to Metal Gear, or a project that is completely unexpected and new.
Sony will likely give Hideo Kojima quite a bit of creative freedom; considering his dedicated following and history with Metal Gear.
