Kojima appeared at the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase to reveal that he’s teaming up with Xbox Game Studios to make a game he’s wanted to make for a while, but was previously unable to due to technological limitations.
“There is a game I have always wanted to make,” Kojima explained.
“It’s a completely new game, one that no one has ever experienced or seen before. I’ve waited very long for the day when I could finally start to create it.
“With Microsoft‘s cutting edge cloud technology and the change in the industry’s trend, it has now become possible to challenge myself to to make this never-before-seen concept.
“It may take some time, but I’m looking forward to teaming up with Xbox Game Studios and hope to bring you some exciting news in the future.”
No further information on the game was confirmed, nor was there an indication of which Kojima’s project will be completed.
Hideo Kojima is reportedly working on a new horror game called Overdose.
Writing for Try Hard Guides, Henderson reports that the game doesn’t appear to be Death Stranding 2, which actor Norman Reedus recently claimed is in early development.
Following the publication of the article, Henderson claimed that Kojima Productions has reached out to request its removal. If true, it would appear to lend weight to the claims made in the story.
Kojima has teased his next project ever since the release of Death Stranding in November 2019. That month, he suggested he was watching horror movies in preparation for a future project, and in April 2020 he said he’d like to make a “revolutionary” horror game one day.
