We only got a glimpse at what the brilliant mind of Hideo Kojima could create in the horror genre in P.T. before it was canned. Although people will have to go through hoops and ladders to get their hands on that classic, there is now some hope that the mastermind is working on something new.

Junji Ito revealed during an interview at Comic-Con 2020 that he had been in contact with Kojima about a possible horror game. He stated: “I do know director Kojima and we have been in conversation that he may have a horror-based game that he may be doing, and so he has invited me to work on that, but there are no details on it yet.”

Although that does sound like good news, provides a good point that Ito made sure to use very noncommital language when he was discussing the possibility of the game. Notice he stated: “he may have a horror-based game that he may be doing.” This doesn’t flat out confirm that Kojima is actively developing a horror game, however, it is a step in that direction. We know now that he has been exploring the possibility of stepping back into the genre.

With that said, this project may never see the light of day. It could have been scrapped already and we will never hear or see it again. Though, it would be fantastic to see what Kojima can create with a horror-based game again.

After the cult classic P.T., I would have to believe that Kojima could knock it out of the park once again. There has never been an experience like that before. It has always made me wonder what a full-length Kojima developed horror game would look like. There is one thing I am sure of, it would be pretty damn terrifying.
