Hideo Kojima, the legendary game developer -seems to have done it again with his new game, Death Stranding -which is what everyone is talking about.
According to reports, Kojima’s next game will be launching on the PS4 on November 8th -to much anticipation. Kojima has been dropping a number of trailers and extended cinematic looks at the game since its first announcement three years ago at E3. Death Stranding is the first game from Kojima Productions.
Hideo Kojima was born August 24, 1963 in Tokyo, Japan. He grew up writing short stories and making home-made films. He studied economics in college, during which time he discovered his love for video games.
Following his departure from Konami where he built up the Metal Gear franchise, among other projects, Kojima started his independent studio, Kojima Productions. His most popular games include the Metal Gear series, Zone of the Enders, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
He’s received lifetime achievement awards from both the MTV Game Awards and the Game Developers Conference and was inducted into the AIAS Hall of Fame in 2016.
Certainly, at this point in his career, he doesn’t need much of an introduction. However, there’s very little intel about his personal life. At 55, Hideo who has ties to big names in the industry such as actor Norman Reedus, is apparently single.
Kojima who enjoys a low profile isn’t the type to speak about his private life. He is however active on social media but no luck there either. He has over 500k followers on Instagram but often uploads work related images.
Some sites do suggest he has been married for a longtime and that he and his unknown partner even have a child together. However, that can’t be verified. So, the question remains, who is Hideo Kojima’s wife/girlfriend? Either way his girlfriend or wife must be very proud of him.
