Story: While addressing a difficult situation over a cancelled project, sources hint that a Kojima Stadia game in the works, possibly.
As told by and translated by VGC, it appears that Hideo Kojima, acclaimed and veteran developer, and Stadia have been in talks over a future project. This revelation was brought forth during a conversation with VGC. In it, where Kojima expressed he was “pissed” about another unrelated project being cancelled.
In regards to the talks with Stadia, the following is reported by VGC:
Stadia’s head of games, Jade Raymond, visited Kojima Productions in July 2019, and the designer has previously expressed a desire to explore a “new format of game” enabled by cloud gaming platforms.
This should come as no surprise as, Kojima previously has expressed the following:
“I think within the next few years, gaming will move on to streaming,” Kojima told BBC Newsbeat in November 2019. “Movies, dramas and games will all be streamed and you’ll enjoy them on your iPad or iPhone or a screen anytime, anywhere,” he said.
Kojima is best known for his creation of the Metal Gear series. After his well noted rocky split with publisher Konami, he founded Kojima productions. The studio’s first title was the very controversial Death Stranding. It will be interesting to see if there is a future collaboration with Stadia. More importantly, there will be interest to see if it will be an exclusive title. Many skeptics and supporters alike say the platform is in dire need of such.
We will keep you posted on future developments.
