Hideo Kojima’s upcoming game will blur the line between different media

The creator of Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid works on two video games, and at least one of them will mix different forms of entertainment or cultural products.

Kojima Productions is working on two video games. The founder of the studio, Hideo Kojima, points out in a brief interview with the Japanese magazine Famitsu (translated by Gematsu ) that with one of those titles they try to blur the line that separates the different cultural industries (video games, cinema, music, etc.).

The creator of Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid mentions that one of those games is “a title that is a new challenge.” “As the limits of entertainment disappear shortly, I would like to make this year one in which we take a step forward by challenging different media and [cultural] expressions .”

The Japanese author’s remarks come after Kojima Productions announced the opening of a studio in Los Angeles dedicated to film, television, and music in November. The goal of the team led by Riley Russell (28-year legal director and vice president of business affairs at Sony Interactive Entertainment) will be to expand the firm’s intellectual properties, such as Death Stranding, to other media.

The “big” game: maybe a Silent Hill?

Returning to Kojima’s statements in Famitsu, the studio led by the Japanese creative is also working on another title. One of the two rates it as “great” and the other as “new, challenging.” Perhaps the latter is the project at hand with which he intends to mix different forms of entertainment.

As for that “big” game, there is no official information, but in October, the rumour took shape (which, as such, must be taken with a grain of salt) that Kojima Productions is working together with Konami and Sony Interactive Entertainment on a new installment. From Silent Hill. When Kojima left Konami after the release of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, he worked on Silent Hills, a title in which Guillermo del Toro was collaborating. After a playable trailer ( PT ) was posted on the PlayStation Store, the game was cancelled.
