Hideo Kojima has joined the advisory board of Prologue Immersive, a virtual reality firm that is investigating new projects for the VR and AR markets. The developer will be working alongside Kyle Cooper, the designer for the credits of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. The two have been close friends for years.
"I'm very excited to hear that masters of the visual arts such as Kyle Cooper and his team are taking on yet another challenge in this digital interactive media that is VR. Through VR, I am certain they will strive to connect films and video games and take us on to that bridge to the future that lies ahead." — Hideo Kojima
Whether or not this means Death Stranding is a VR game or if Kojima will be a figurehead for the market is yet to be seen.
