Kojima Productions’ next project has been heavily rumored for a while now. Actor Norman Reedus outright stated that Death Stranding 2 is in the works but Hideo Kojima has been linked to other projects, like an exclusive game for Xbox and the next Silent Hill. However, a new report on Try Hard Guides from insider Tom Henderson reveals that Kojima’s next game is something else entirely.
It’s currently codenamed “Overdose” and features Margaret Qualley (who played Mama in Death Stranding). The early footage sent to Henderson saw Qualley’s character navigating dark corridors in third-person using a flashlight, though a first-person perspective is also seemingly available. The footage ends with a jump scare and the words “GAMEOVER.” It then reveals the words “A Hideo Kojima Game” before the official title, “OVERDOSE.”
Of course, there are many questions to be asked. Is this the Xbox-exclusive project that Kojima has been in talks about for several months? Henderson couldn’t verify that the deal between the developer and Xbox had been finalized but said “it does seem that something is likely to be announced soon.”
