It has been rumored for some time that Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions would partner with Xbox Game Studios. This turned out to be true because, during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, the legendary developer briefly passed by with a video message.
He announced that he was indeed collaborating with Xbox Game Studios on a project he had wanted to make for a long time. Further details have unfortunately not been released, so it remains with this single piece of news. So what will happen remains to be seen.
It also looks like Kojima Productions has several projects in the works at the same time. Recently, the rumor surfaced that Death Stranding 2 is also in development.
Kojima claims that he has been waiting a long time to build this “never-before-seen concept,” but that the new game, which will be developed in collaboration with Xbox Game Studios, may take some time to complete. Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer expressed his delight at having Kojima Productions collaborate with Microsoft’s teams.
The game will make use of Microsoft Azure’s cloud computing powerhouse, and it will be Kojima Productions’ second project since their formation as an independent studio following Kojima’s departure from Konami after Death Stranding. Following the cancellation of Silent Hills and the publication of the cult classic teaser P.T., there are rumors that this game will see Kojima return to the horror game genre.
