And he’s pretty buzzed about Blade Runner 2049, too.
2017 will be an interesting year for games, with Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Prey, Resident Evil 7, and many more scheduled for release. Hideo Kojima, who has his own game – the mysterious Death Stranding – coming out next year, has revealed he is most excited for Red Dead Redemption 2.
In an interview with GI.biz, Kojima said “looking ahead, for games, my pick would have to be Red Dead Redemption .” The Metal Gear Solid creator has said previously that he has great respect for the team at Rockstar: “Rockstar’s team are the best. Without question they will pull up the possibility of game.”
Also worthy of note in the interview: Kojima reveals his most anticipated film. Blade Runner 2049 is the highest on his list, and given the cinematic ground broken with the original Blade Runner, and Kojima’s love of science fiction, this comes as no surprise.
