Keep your expectations in check for the developer’s fifth anniversary.
Kojima Productions are celebrating their fifth anniversary since the establishment of the studio, which followed Hideo Kojima breaking off from Konami and going independent. Yesterday, the developer said on Twitter that it would be sharing “exciting updates” to celebrate the occasion, and as you might expect, that caught many people’s attention.
If you were expecting the announcement of a new game, however – or even something like a PS5 update for Death Stranding – prepare for disappointment. The developer took to Twitter, and responding to a question from a fan, confirmed that there will be no game announcement today. The exciting updates that the studio mentioned yesterday have largely entailed reveals for new merch.
Kojima Productions confirmed not too long ago that the developer was indeed at work on a new project. Hideo Kojima has previously stated that he wants to make a horror game (but not one like P.T.), though it’s unknown if that’s what this new project is.
There are no game announcements today. The updates that we have planned today are purely to celebrate our anniversary and to thank you all for the support that you have given us these past 5 years.
A few more updates to come!
