Earlier this week, Kojima Productions’ Audio Director Ludvig Forseell confirmed that he was working on recording music for an unannounced project, he later explained that the work was a “side-project” independent to Hideo Kojima and its team.
Hideo Kojima has teased his next project ever since the release of Death Stranding in November 2019.
Several rumors from accurate insider Dusk Golem, also known as Aesthetic Gamer, affirmed that Kojima and its development studio were chosen to produce an upcoming Silent Hill game for PlayStation 5. Silent Hill‘s rumors were debunked by Konami, this was followed by an official statement by Kojima affirming he got a AAA project canceled.
Kojima was recently a member of the jury of September’s Venice VR Festival where he shared a few words about the future of the technology.
“Being able to now create art, film, and games that don’t fit into this frame and the question of how to go about expressing this… I think that the next two to three years will be major for this medium in terms of how creators and artists will use it and what they will create.”
Kojima Production is established by game developers, but Hideo Kojima seems interested in expanding to a film studio.
“In the future, Kojima Productions will start making films,” Kojima said at the time. “If you can do one thing well, then you can do everything well.”
“I think within the next few years, gaming will move on to streaming,” he added. “Movies, dramas, and games will all be streamed, and you’ll enjoy them on your iPad or iPhone or a screen anytime, anywhere. When that happens, games, films, and dramas will have to compete in the same space. I’m very interested in the new format of gaming that will appear on there, and that’s what I want to take on.”
