On January 12, Hideo Kojima teased a new project through Twitter, and it feels like we’ve written this exact same article a dozen times since 2019 – so we decided to look back and track down every single tease and game ideas shared by Kojima since Death Stranding.
Death Stranding was first released on November 8, 2019, as the first ever game from Kojima Productions. Since then, Hideo Kojima has been teasing numerous projects. Hopefully 2022 will be the year where some of these projects are fully revealed.

In January 2020, Hideo Kojima together with illustrator Yoji Shinkawa teased multiple projects. Including how they’d like to make a manga, something like an anime, movies, and several games: one big game and smaller, episodic games. In particular, Kojima said he wanted to make something mecha related so Yoji Shinkawa could design some new machines as there weren’t enough in Death Stranding.
In April 2020, in an interview with Bafta, Kojima teased he’d like to make a new horror game. He brought it up when discussing the cancellation of P.T., the Silent Hills project. with Guillermo del Toro.
In May 2020, Hideo Kojima teased in an interview that one of his future games was in early planning phase. He also revealed that another project got canceled.
In the industry, it’s pretty common for projects to get canceled very early in development. Without even being publicly announced. This is probably one of the reasons why Death Stranding is still the sole game Kojima Productions has announced (and released) so far.
