Hideo Kojima and Xbox Game Studios team up for new cloud-based game
Hideo Kojima and Xbox head Phil Spencer announced a partnership between Xbox Game Studios and Kojima Productions during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 on Sunday. They’re teaming up to “create an all-new experience” unlike anything the studios may have released before. This new Kojima game is currently shrouded in mystery, as the announcement was not accompanied by a title reveal or gameplay footage. So far, all we know is that the game will take advantage of Microsoft’s cloud gaming technology.
On the Partnership between Xbox and Kojima Studios, Kojima exclaimed that he waited a long time to start working on this project. He added, “With Microsoft’s cutting-edge cloud technology and changing industry trends, it is now possible to challenge myself to create this novel concept.” There is no clear indication regarding the release date of this new game. It should “take some time”, however, there could be “more exciting news in the future”.
Kojima is a highly revered game designer who created and oversaw the Metal Gear franchise, considered by many to be the genesis of the stealth game genre. He then left Konami and partnered with Sony to develop Death Stranding, which was released in 2019 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive. It is said to be the first game in the “strand game” genre, which uses various social elements. Now, this new adventure with Xbox should lead to a new type of game “that no one has ever seen or experienced before”. It will use Microsoft’s cutting-edge cloud technology.
No further information was shared during Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. However, a follow-up event, Xbox Games Showcase Extended, is scheduled for Tuesday, June 14. This event is expected to feature new game trailers and conversations with game creators. .
