Given his legacy, those in the gaming industry consider a praise from Kojima to be a great honor. This is also not the first time Kojima has praised a Tom Clancy title as he has on multiple occasion shared his admiration for Tom Clancy’s The Division.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands is the sixth game in the series and the first that was released after the passing of the acclaimed author. The game follows the Ghosts as they are deployed to Bolivia to take down the Santa Blanca (similar to the novel, Clear and Present Danger).
