Hideo Kojima’s latest game named Death Stranding has released on the PlayStation 4 earlier this month. So far, the reviews are mixed. Now when his first post medal gear solid game has finally shipped, people are wondering that what could be there next for this legendary game developer.
Earlier to this, it was clear that Kojima was going to get separated from the longtime partner and publisher Konami. All of their projects together were scrapped. One of these was horror games called PT. Since then the legendary developer is seen to be interested in developing horror games. It may be said that timing dint work out for him however he is all geared up to amuse his fans with his new project.
Hideo Kojimo along with Konami released a demo for the aforesaid horror game back in year 2014 and to be specific August 2014. It was praised for its visuals, direction, story complexity, and supernatural horror in all parts of the world. Though as mentioned earlier, unfortunately, things fell apart between Kojima and Konami and in April 2015 the same demo was removed from the PlayStation store. Moreover, players who had the said game in their library were unable to re-download the same application.
Kojima will not be developing PT however it is clear that he is still working on developing a game in horror genre. It is because he said the following when he was asked to talk about his could be next project, “As to make the scariest horror game, I’ll watch the scary movies in order to awaken my horror soul. THE EYE is the Thai horror movie I rent when making PT but was too scary to finish watching. The package is scary so I rented the disc only. Will I be able to finish watching?”
Before the release of Death Stranding, Kojima shared that he hopes to create a new gaming genre which he termed as “Strand.” However, so far his new genre is not catching on. No doubt, some of the players love it, while other dislike it strongly, citing an open world to be one of its biggest flaws.
It is pretty much realistic to expect that Kojima Productions, at some point will continue with the Death Stranding franchise despite the polarizing reception. However it is likely that studios next project will indeed be a horror game, which is probably why the creator of the Metal Gear is putting in efforts to get through what he thinks, is the scariest movie ever.
At this point in time, whatever Kojima decides to do next in future will indeed be big news. It may even follow up to be the polarizing Death Stranding. So until next announcement is made, all what can be done is to speculate on what is coming next from the gaming legend.
