In a press release issued by SCE, president and global chief Andrew House said Kojima is a big part of PlayStation's history and therefore is "delighted that he has chosen to bring his brand new project to life in partnership with PlayStation."

Kojima added: "I will be taking on a new challenge by establishing my own independent studio, and I am thrilled to be able to embark on this journey with PlayStation, who I have continued to work with all these past years...I cannot wait to deliver, with PlayStation, a game that will become a compelling franchise."

In a Q&A also issued by the company, as published by Medium, it was revealed that Sony is not investing in Kojima Productions, and the unnamed game in question "is planned to become available on PC" after its PS4 release.

The length of the console exclusivity was not disclosed, but the statement indicates it will not be available on Xbox One.

Although details on the project were not provided, the Q&A clarified that the game will not be related to Metal Gear or cancelled horror title Silent Hills, as they are both Konami properties.

On the subject of Konami, Sony said it "will remain one of SCE's most important publishers, and our relationship with them will not change."

Hideo Kojima finally revealed he has setup is own independent studio along with former members of the team he worked with at Konami on December 15.

The announcement followed a lengthy period of speculation about Kojima's status with his ex-employer Konami. At The Game Awards, host Geoff Keighley revealed lawyers were keeping Kojima from attending the show.

In November, Konami denied the claims that Kojima had left the company, saying that he was on vacation.
