After parting ways with Konami, Hideo Kojima finally broke the Metal Gear Solid tradition and brought a brand new IP to life which was surely successful in most aspects. Now, it’s everyone’s guess that when the next project from Kojima Productions would arrive, especially learning that the composer behind Death Stranding and Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is now working on an “undisclosed project.”

Revealed by Ludwig Forssell himself on Twitter, the composer officially confirmed that he is working on a brand new project, but didn’t mention what’s it related to. Maybe it’s not even a game, but Forssell’s recent partnerships with Hideo Kojima on his latest story-focused titles leaves us no way other than getting hyped for a possible new game from Kojima Productions. Even if it’s a movie, it could be related to Kojima again as he already announced that his studio will develop movies in the future as well.

Despite all the interesting theories above, Forssell later confirmed that his new project has nothing to do with Kojima Productions. However, it could still be a game. But even if it turns out to be a lie, we wouldn’t panic as Kojima has a tendency to hide its ongoing projects from the public. We all remember the infamous scenario behind the announcement of P.T. and Silent Hills.

Originally revealed in 2016, Death Stranding was launched for PS4 later last year, receiving mostly positive reviews for its ground-breaking storyline with Hollywood stars and exceptional visuals. That being said, the game wasn’t quite successful in delivering entertaining gameplay.

All in all, Death Stranding was a great achievement for Hideo Kojima and his team after leaving Konami and the Metal Gear Solid series. It’s yet to be revealed what the next project from Kojima Productions would be, but the boss man has talked about his desire for creating a horror game many times after Death Stranding.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Currently, Death Stranding is available for PS4 and PC. There have been no talks about an Xbox or next-gen version of the game so far, but the studio’s next title will surely target next-gen platforms.
