The trailer, which contained no gameplay, included several actors reading dialogue into the camera.
“We’re really glad to be at the 10th Game Awards, and we’re really happy to show off OD,” Kojima said on stage.
“I really like to challenge new things. This one with help of Xbox Game Studios and using their Cloud Gaming technology, I’m doing this together. It is a game, don’t get me wrong. At the same time it’s a movie at the same time it’s a new form of media.”
Nope director Jordan Peele then appeared on stage and called Kojima an “icon.”
“He’s been an inspiration to me, and the opportunity to collaborate with him is truly incredible,” said Peele.
“Jordan is one of those geniuses, and when we met he felt like a friend from the past,” said Kojima.
Kojima also teased that he has other collaborative partners on the project.
Hideo Kojima announced in June 2022 that he had teamed up with Xbox to work on a cloud-based project which he described as a “never-before-seen concept”.
At the time of collaboration’s announcement, Kojima described the project as “a completely new game, one that no one has ever experienced or seen before”, and in a more recent interview he claimed one of his next titles is “like a new medium”.
“I tend to get easily bored,” he said. “Part of why I’ve been able to make games for 30 years is because new technology replaces the old so quickly. The tech you use today may not be applicable tomorrow, and I’m interested in figuring out ways to incorporate the new. Making the wrong choice can result in failure, of course. It’s a bit like a space program in that way.
“The project we’re working on with Microsoft is one I have been thinking about for five or six years already. The project required infrastructure that was never needed before, so I discussed it with lots of different big companies and gave presentations, but they really seemed to think that I was mad.
“It was ultimately Microsoft who showed that they understood, and now we’re working together on the project, including the technology front.”
