. . .
We are truly excited and looking forward to working with the very best entertainment talent we can, across all of the entertainment industries.
This really aligns with Kojimas general business style. Death Stranding utilized a number of aspects from other media sources, such as real-world music albums and using real-world actors as a part of the game. They had big name actors playing lead roles, while bands like CHVRCHES made original songs for the game. The interest in cross-production was always there. They're just committing to the idea deeper now.
At the moment, theres no confirmed plans for the new division. But well likely hear more in the coming months.Stay tuned
