Kojima Productions is creating a new game, but it is not Abandoned for PlayStation 5, the title that Sony introduced just yesterday. The developer of said game is Blue Box Games, but the trailer and the story seen there they were very intriguing, enough that many users gave free rein to their speculation.
As much, as for example to affirm that Abandoned was a new secret game from Hideo Kojima, But is not the case. Own Bue Box Games He has already denied it through his website: “We have received many emails about the rumor with Hideo Kojima, we have no association with him, nor do we pretend to have it or it was our intention to imply it; we are a small group working with passion on a degree that we wanted to work on for a long time“.
One of the reasons that has led to think this of Abandoned because almost nothing can be found from Blue Box Games, but that’s not because it’s something covered up by Kojima. Their website is empty, they only respond to the statement about Kojima, they have a game in Early Access on Steam they stopped updating and now their trailer is private and another game of yours on Steam tried to launch through the now extinct Steam Greenlight.
Nevertheless, Jeff Grubb from VentureBeat has evidences and sources supposedly familiar with this whole affair, stating that Kojima is in talks with Microsoft. Apparently, the Japanese creator will publish his next game on Microsoft platforms, for that very reason that image that you have seen of Kojima’s toy behind Phil Spencer and next to the Xbox logo it seems more intentional than you think.
For the moment, the journalist does not want to risk more with the matter, since later he says: “I can’t confirm if Xbox has already closed the deal, but I understand that Kojima is the central pillar of a Microsoft plan to harness Japanese talent.“.
Xbox would be in negotiations to buy another large studio and announce it this year, according to an insider
In this way, horror lovers will have a double entry, because on the one hand there is Abandoned for nothing related to Kojima, but for another this supposed project with Microsoft that would also be horror, since Hideo himself wanted to return to that path.
