KJP LA & Tokyo Studio Development
4Gamer: It was announced that both the Tokyo and Los Angeles studios were co-developing MGO. How do the two studios work together on development?
Oki: MGSV:TPP single player mode is being developed by Kojima Productions - Tokyo, while the multiplayer version (MGO) is being developed by the Los Angeles studio. Generally the production is separated between each region but the core system is based on the same Fox Engine platform. We have several team members who travel frequently back and forth to coordinate and cooperate on each studio's needs. As the Creative Director for MGO, I stay in LA periodically to oversee the creative direction of MGO.
