In the course of the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase, there was not only gameplay for western titles such as diablo 4 or Starfield to see. Xbox CEO Phil Spencer also underlined that efforts are being made to intensify cooperation with Japanese developers. So will the newly announced action title Wo Long – Fallen Dynasty by Koei Tecmo for Xbox and also the Persona series is coming to Xbox consoles after a long time, starting with Persona 5 Royal in October 2022.
The biggest announcement in this context, however, was the confirmation of a rumor that had been circulating for a long time: the well-known video game designer Hideo Kojima develops an Xbox game. However, it remained a very nebulous announcement: There were no details, no artwork, not even a project name. However, Kojima stated it was a special project for him:
There’s a game I’ve always wanted to make. It will be a whole new game that no one has ever experienced. I’ve waited a very long time for the day when I can finally start this. With Microsoft’s cutting-edge cloud technology and changing industry trends, I am now able to challenge myself to implement this unprecedented concept. It may take time, but I look forward to working with Xbox Game Studios and hope to have exciting news for you in the future.
Kojima Productions is currently working on three projects. In addition to the Xbox cooperation is noisy Norman Reedus to work on a successor Death Stranding been started. Also, Kojima has hinted in the past that he wants to make his first horror game (at least the first one that comes out – which Silent Hills was not granted). It should be about overdose act in the Death Stranding actress Margaret Qualley plays along again. This is what industry insiders reported Tom Hendersonwho saw footage of Overdose. This was followed by a request from Kojima Productions to take the Overdose article offline, which Henderson refused.
