Kojima Announces He's Making The Game He's Always Wanted - For Xbox

A brand-new Hideo Kojima game, made in collaboration with Xbox Game Studios, was officially teased during Xbox Games Showcase 2022. The beloved auteur is perhaps most well-known for creating the Metal Gear Solid series, and after becoming independent Kojima Productions released Death Stranding in 2019. Earlier this week a Hideo Kojima horror game called Overdose was apparently leaked, but the auteur's next project has only been subtly teased by the man himself.

Hideo Kojima's directorial debut, Metal Gear, broke new ground when it released back in 1987. Considered by many to be the first true stealth game, the MSX2 computer game sees players take the role of special operative Solid Snake as he infiltrates a fortress state called Outer Heaven. Metal Gear popularized the stealth game genre, and Kojima helmed a long line of sequels until the release of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain in 2015. Kojima Productions' latest release is Death Stranding, a post-apocalyptic postal service simulator starring The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus. A Death Stranding 2 from Kojima has been teased by Reedus, but the director and his studio have stayed almost silent on the supposed reveal.

During Xbox Games Showcase 2022, Hideo Kojima (via Xbox) appeared to give small details about his next game. While no official title was given to the project, Kojima did confirm that his next venture will utilize Microsoft's cutting-edge cloud technology to bring a never-before-seen concept to life. Kojima has indicated that the project "may take some time" to fully realize, but the Metal Gear creator seems excited to bring more news in the future. Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer also reiterated that Kojima's next project will bring an exciting and groundbreaking concept to life. Speaking on the project and Xbox partnership, Kojima said:

"Yes, there is a game I've always wanted to make. It's a completely new game. one that no-one has ever seen or experienced before. I've waited very long for the day when I could finally start to create it."

While the Metal Gear creator's next project is extremely interesting, many fans are still holding onto hope for a Silent Hill game from Hideo Kojima. Back in 2014, the infamous trickster released P.T., a short psychological horror game, under the fake developer name "7780s Studio." The game, which stands for "Playable Teaser," was eventually revealed to be a short demo for a new Silent Hill game being created by Kojima and filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. While many fans still dream of getting their hands on Kojima's Silent Hills project, the developer seems more interested in pursuing fresh concepts instead.

Hideo Kojima is an icon of the gaming industry, having created a huge lineup of fun and fascinating games over more than three decades. The auteur's latest project is said to deliver a fresh new experience for gamers to discover, though it will likely carry on many of Kojima's most popular themes and reoccurring elements too. For fans of the distinct Hideo Kojima style, his partnership with Xbox Game Studios should be an extremely exciting concept once it finally releases.
