This past week, Kojima was in the US where he visited the PlayStation headquarters, as well as several other studios. He met with John Kodera, who succeeded Andrew House in 2017 as the president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment.
“With Mr.Kodera of SIE.”
On Halloween, Kojima also paid a visit to Sucker Punch in Seattle, the studio currently working on the samurai game Ghost of Tsushima.
“Visited Sucker Punch on the Halloween! took pictures with Brian, Nate, and Jason.”
Lastly, he visited Valve and met with its co-founder and CEO Gabe Newell, before heading back to Japan.
“Visited VALVE. Took pic with Gabe.”
In 2016 Kojima made a similar trip during which he visited the same studios. And like last time, the exact nature of the trip remains unclear.
