Kojima Productions Moves Offices and “Stores Iconic Metaverse Hallway”


“We decided to store them as digital data”

Kojima Productions offices are moving, after five long years at the incredibly memorable Tokyo location.

Chances are you’ve seen photos of the aforementioned office at some point, whether it’s the very long “Ludens Hallway” or via the many shots from the Conan O’Brien tour. Well, now that exact layout is gone. A few days ago, Kojima confirmed the newsindicating:

“Today is the day we say goodbye to the entryway, Ludens hallway and kitchen that has been our home for just over five years. Many memories come to mind. Farewell??? ?????”

Suffice it to say, no exact reason was given for the move, or how Kojima Productions’ new offices will stack up: all we know for now is that he’s been working hard. on a new game. Oh, and in Kojima fashion, he “stores some of it in the metaverse”. A few days after announcing that he had packed his bags and was leaving, Kojima himself tweeted that the “iconic entrance” (but is it as iconic as a Ubisoft hat?) was stored as digital data through video and virtual reality, as it “could no longer be physically moved or stored”.

I wouldn’t pass it up to put the hallway straight into a playable opening credits scene in its next game; or even a random hallway in a random section of said game as an easter egg.
