Death Stranding developer Hideo Kojima and his studio Kojima Productions announced that they will be expanding their reach with the launch of their own division centering around different media outside gaming, including TV and film (thanks GamesIndustry.biz).
Former PlayStation vice president of business affairs Riley Russell will be heading the new division focusing on music, film, and TV. Russell said:
The team has as its charter, the goal of expanding the reach and awareness of the properties now under development at Kojima Productions, and to make them even more a part of our popular culture.

Kojima Productions business development manager Yoshiko Fukuda expressed his sentiments towards the new venture their company has entered as well. Fukuda said:
Finding new ways to entertain, engage and offer value to our fans is essential in a fast-moving, ever changing storytelling world. Our new division will take the studio into even more areas that present our creative narratives beyond videogames and to open up ways for our fans to communicate and immerse themselves in these spaces.
Neither leader mentioned what the studio's debut projects in these new areas may be, though. Death Stranding Director's Cut released in September, and while it's the studio's most prominent release in recent years, there's no word whether it's in line for a film or series adaptation just yet.,
