Kojima Productions is making a new game. But it wasn’t dropped on the PlayStation 5 earlier today, Sony Interactive Entertainment. It revealed a trailer for Abandoned, a horror project from the developer Blue Box Games, but that trailer and the developer’s uncertain history are weird enough to make some people guess Abandoned is the next game from the creators. Metal Gear Solid Hideo Kojima is not.
One of the reasons people believe Abandoned to come from Kojima is because it is difficult to find a lot of information about Blue Box Games. But that̵7;s not because it’s Kojima Productions Shell Company, but Blue Box is just a small studio that has never released a major game console.
Bluebox website is dead, Early Access games on Steam have stopped updating And yet, there is another similar game trying to launch on Steam’s Greenlight program that is now discontinued.
I got it Perhaps Kojima plays a long perch. And he’s always been behind this studio. He just waited for the time to strike and the time had come.
But the biggest piece of evidence I have that Abandoned is not a Kojima joint is that Kojima is in talks with Microsoft about the release of his next game, according to a source familiar with the matter. And yes, that statue on Phil Spencer’s shelf is referring to a possible deal with the legendary developer. I can’t confirm if Xbox has closed the deal yet. But my understanding is that Kojima is the focal point of Microsoft’s plan to take advantage of the Japanese talent.
Hence, you will have to enjoy the disruption of Kojima’s lack of marketing.
