We've known that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has been working on a project with Xbox Game Studios for a little while, but both parties have remained largely quiet about what we can expect from it.
However, speaking to IGN in an interview this week, Kojima pulled back the curtain just slightly to reveal some early details. Basically, he's advising this is an "unusual" project that he's been thinking about for multiple years already.
Here's a bit of what he had to say:
"In addition to DS2, we're making one other unusual title."
"The project we're working on with Microsoft is one I have been thinking about for five or six years already. The project required infrastructure that was never needed before, so I discussed it with lots of different big companies and gave presentations, but they really seemed to think that I was mad. It was ultimately Microsoft who showed that they understood, and now we're working together on the project, including the technology front."
Kojima also mentioned in the interview that he gets "easily bored", stating that "the tech you use today may not be applicable tomorrow, and I'm interested in figuring out ways to incorporate the new".
That's about all the information we have for now, although it was also confirmed back in June that the project will be a "game for Xbox like no one has ever experienced before, leveraging the cloud".
We're expecting to hear more about this in 2023, so let's hope we don't have to wait too long!
