Hideo Kojima, director of Kojima Productions, has been revealed at the keynote speaker at this year’s Develop:Brighton conference.

The keynote – titled Industry Legends Discuss the Future: A Conversation with Hideo Kojima – will see Kojima interviewed by industry legend and long-time friend, Mark Cerny. The discussion will focus around Kojima’s inspirations, process and thoughts on the future of games.

Hideo Kojima is a world-renowned game creator known for pushing the boundaries of the video game medium. His final game for Konami, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, is widely considered a masterwork. And in the fallout of his departure, and subsequent gagging by Konami, the keynote is something of a coup for Develop:Brighton and should provide a fascinating insight into one of the world’s leading games creators.

Andy Lane, managing director of Tandem Events, said;

“We’re delighted and honoured to announce Hideo Kojima as our keynote speaker for Develop:Brighton 2016. Known the world over as someone who’s at the forefront of what’s possible within video games, he continually pushes the boundaries. Alongside his good friend, Mark Cerny, these gaming legends have an amazing history within the games industry and I’m looking forward to hearing more.”

Develop:Brighton takes place at the Hilton Brighton Metropole from Tuesday 12 July to Thursday 14 July. Find out more at the Develop:Brighton website.
