Many Hideo Kojima fans became persuaded these last few days that the iconic Japanese developer is the mastermind behind Abandoned, possibly a Silent Hill-like horror game project, or possibly even Silent Hill itself, by Sony, exclusively on PS5.

Rumor: Hideo Kojima’s new game with Blue Box Game Studios explained

On June 15, Blue Box Game Studios teased on Twitter it will soon reveal it’s new Sony exclusive project, Abandoned.

As Reddit user AidThisFellowUser explained, there are several possible hints linking this project to Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions. We summarized the biggest points below.

  • Blue Box Studios might be a fake company made by Hideo Kojima for a new game, similarly to what he did for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and P.T. / Silent Hills
  • “Blue Box” also designates phone scams, and the studio’s employees photos on Linkedin reportedly use stock photos
  • One of the canceled projects by Blue Box was called Lost Tapes, which shares a name with an OST of Metal Gear Solid V
  • Blue Box Game Studios is supposed to be based in the Netherlands, and the country’s flag was spotted in the Death Stranding Director’s Cut trailer
  • The game’s supposed director, Hasan Kahraman, shares the same initials as Hideo Kojima.
  • Hideo Kojima’s recent tweet with the words Silent and Hill in it.
  • The Abandoned trailer has the letters P.T. at the 0:49 seconds mark

It’s also interesting to note Kojima said he wanted to make an horror game in the past. We also translated an interview where he shared some of his goals post Death Stranding.

Blue Box Game Studios, Hideo Kojima and Geoff Keighley

Moreover, Geoff Keighley also follows the Twitter account of Blue Box Studios, and he gave the above answer when asked about it.

Keighley has also shared this screen on Resetera, of a message from “Hassan”. Seeing how he is friends with Hideo Kojima, it definitely doesn’t seem like a coincidence.

Lastly, Keighley also showcased a video message from Kojima at the Summer Game Fest, which was the announcement for Death Stranding Director’s Cut, but they were perhaps teasing something else as well.

What do you think of the rumours? Do you believe it’s just Silent Hill desperate and delusional fans grasping at straws, or is everything true? We’ll probably know in the next few days. The meaning behind the “Blue” of Blue Box will also be revealed soon:

Personally speaking, I believe Hideo Kojima and Kojima Productions are indeed the true identities behind BBStudios, but I don’t believe this is a new Silent Hill game. If you disagree, you can always share your thoughts with me on Twitter @A_iyane07.
