Kojima Productions is making a brand new recreation, however it isn’t Abandoned for PlayStation 5. Earlier as we speak, Sony Interactive Entertainment revealed a trailer for Deserted, which is a horror challenge from developer Blue Field Video games. However that trailer, and the developer’s spotty historical past, are simply odd sufficient to trigger some individuals to invest that Deserted is secretly the subsequent recreation from Metallic Gear Strong creator Hideo Kojima. That’s not the case.
One of many causes individuals imagine Deserted is from Kojima is as a result of it’s troublesome to search out a whole lot of details about Blue Field Video games. However that isn’t as a result of it’s a shell company for Kojima Productions. As a substitute, Blue Field is solely a small studio that has by no means launched a serious console recreation earlier than.
Blue Field’s web site is useless. It has a recreation in Early Access on Steam that it has stopped updating. And it has yet another similar game that it tried to launch on Steam’s now-defunct Greenlight program.
I get it, although. Perhaps Kojima was enjoying the long-con. And it was him behind this studio all alongside. He was merely ready for the second to strike, and that point has come.
However the largest piece of proof I’ve that Deserted is just not a Kojima joint is that Kojima is in talks with Microsoft about publishing his subsequent recreation, in keeping with a supply conversant in the matter. And sure, that statue on Phil Spencer’s shelf was referencing a possible take care of the legendary developer. I can’t affirm if Xbox closed the deal but, however my understanding is that Kojima is the main focus of a Microsoft plan to leverage Japanese expertise.
So that you’ll should take pleasure in Deserted absent Kojima’s advertising and marketing stunts.
