Kojima Disses Battle Royale Games

Kojima Speaks His Mind About Battle Royale

Hideo Kojima reportedly said at this year’s San Diego Comic Con that battle royale games are “the easiest way to make money” and added that he wasn’t interested in making those types of games.


“The easiest way to make money is to make a game where everyone is on an island trying to shoot each other,” he said. “I don’t want to make that.”

Battle royale genre is arguably the most popular game genre in the world right now so Kojima’s dismissal of genre is pretty surprising. Going by his comments, it’s probably a good bet that Death Stranding won’t have a battle royale mode of any kind.

Other relevant news: Gears 5 could have a battle royale mode after it comes out in September.
