Kojima Productions is relocating after five years at its Tokyo-based office.
“Today is the day we say goodbye to the entrance, the Ludens hallway, and the kitchen that have been our home for a little over five years,” he posted alongside images of the vacated office.
As is common with Kojima’s social media comments, his tweet raised more questions than it did answers.
Kojima Productions said in October 2020 that it was staffing up for a new, still unannounced game project. It’s possible the company may be relocating to a larger home, or simply to a new office that better meets its requirements.
Kojima founded Kojima Productions in 2005, under the control of Konami, where he worked for over 30 years and created the Metal Gear series.
After splitting from Konami in 2015 he reformed Kojima Productions as an independent studio, backed by Sony Interactive Entertainment.
Last November Kojima Productions announced it had established a TV and film studio based in Los Angeles, and according to Kojima its work will begin in earnest this year.
Earlier this month Kojima was awarded a prestigious award for fine arts from the Japanese government’s Agency of Cultural Affairs.
