Kojima Productions is making a brand new sport, however it isn’t Deserted for PlayStation 5. Earlier at present, Sony Interactive Leisure revealed a trailer for Deserted, which is a horror mission 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 sport from Metallic Gear Strong creator Hideo Kojima. That isn’t the case.
One of many causes individuals imagine Deserted is from Kojima is as a result of it’s tough to seek out plenty 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 just a small studio that has by no means launched a serious console sport earlier than.
Blue Field’s web site is useless. It has a sport in Early Entry on Steam that it has stopped updating. And it has one more comparable sport 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 sport, based on 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 not verify 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 must take pleasure in Deserted absent Kojima’s advertising and marketing stunts.
