What if Hideo Kojima’s new game was presented at Gamescom 2022 in a few days? The Japanese designer seems to be preparing for an announcement.
In June, Hideo Kojima confirmed that he a Xbox cloud gaming project in development. A “pre-announcement” for a game that will not be released for several years. But the creator might return with a bigger surprise shortly.
Between two photos of the floor plan of Kojima Productions’ new premises, Hideo Kojima went back to his editing machine to produce content. On the one hand, it might just be a way for him to regain momentum, as he said in another tweet. On the other hand, it could hide the production of a trailer for a future announcement. And the timing issues…
In a few days, on Tuesday, August 23 at 8:00 p.m., the opening conference of Gamescom 2022, the Opening Night Live, will take place. Therefore, it’s not far-fetched to think that the Japanese creator might at least be remotely present with a video to reveal his next game. And rumors about him are rife. At the moment, Death Stranding 2 is in a good position, especially after the leak from Norman Reedus, who would make a new PS5 exclusive to Sony (with a likely delayed PC release).
The other contender is the horror game Overdose…which could ultimately be the Xbox cloud gaming title, although no one is quite sure at this point. In any case, it won’t be an app like The Boys, the Amazon Prime Video series, since Kojima-san abandoned that idea.
Otherwise, see you at the Game Awards 2022… (or not!)
Of course, as said above, there might be nothing more than a creator delving into their editing software. In that case, there will always be the Game Awards 2022, which Hideo Kojima said he wanted to go hoping to have something to eat.
