Small but efficient.

Hideo Kojima has revealed in an interview that he plans to keep his new studio, Kojima Productions, relatively small by not hiring more than 100 employees.

During a recent interview with Gamereactor, Kojima stated that he wants to keep his studio small but efficient.


“I’m aiming to keep the staff less than 100 people,” he said, before adding: “I am searching for technology and at the same time hiring new people, and visiting the (…) studio to get inspiration about what kind of studio I want to make/create.”

Kojima has been visiting various other studios for inspiration, and joked about how important a well stocked kitchen is.

“I’ve found that at any studio the kitchen is very important… I saw at DICE in Stockholm they had 40 microwaves, and also there’s so many coffee makers, and I understood that that is very important.”

Kojima went on to reveal that work on the Metal Gear series consisted of over 200 people. Kojima stated that he feels a smaller studio is easier to manage and allows for better communication.

Hideo Kojima is currently working on a new, as yet untitled, game. Art for the game has been revealed and shows a futuristic looking figure dressed in some kind of cybernetic armor. Whatever Kojima is working on, we look forward to learning more about it.
