During the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, Hideo Kojima revealed that he has teamed up with Xbox for his next game.
The announcement of the collaboration was brief and didn’t include much information, but Kojima stated that the game would be “completely new”, describing it as an experience he “has always wanted to do”. Plus, it looks like it will make use of Microsoft’s cloud technology in some way, though as with everything else regarding the reveal, we’re not sure what that will look like.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard about Kojima’s new project, as Try Hard Guides leaker Tom Henderson gave us a bit of insight about it earlier this week. The controversial leak has been a point of contention in the industry after Try Hard Guides refused to unpublish the article despite a request from Kojima Productions that it be taken down.
Some expressed disappointment in the way Henderson and Try Hard Games handled the situation, but it’s worth noting that Kojima’s desire to see the information redacted was a strong indicator of their accuracy.
However, Kojima Productions seems to be having a hard time keeping their games a secret in general, as the actor from Death StrandingNorman Reedus also recently revealed that he and Kojima have begun work on a sequel to 2019’s polarizing action-adventure title, bluntly saying, “We just started the second one.” He marked the first time a follow-up to the game was hinted at and gave fans an understandable jolt of excitement, but we haven’t heard anything else in the time since.
