Xbox and Microsoft have been hoovering up a lot of great games lately. Between the partnership with EA and Game Pass, as well as that huge ZeniMax/Bethesda acquisition that closed recently, it seems that Xbox is trying to convince gamers that their system is the one you want to be part of. It's impressive, very impressive, and now Microsoft wants to call dibs on Hideo Kojima's next game.
According to VentureBeat, there are talks going on between Microsoft and Kojima regarding the publisher taking on the developer's next project as an exclusive. The original report doesn't give away exactly who has been saying this, but it's an insider commenting on a deal that may or may not be closed yet.
This conversation has come about because a new game for PlayStation was announced called Abandoned. Some crowds thought this was going to be a secret Hideo Kojima project which now seems to be untrue. However, that hasn't stopped others from believing that Abandoned will be a Silent Hill game instead. It's all still pretty nebulous. The developers behind the project, Blue Box, don't really have a name in the industry so there is every chance it's a cover for another developer.
But back to Hideo Kojima and Microsoft. Kojima's latest game, Death Stranding was a PlayStation exclusive for a while before coming to PC eventually, so the developer isn't opposed to working on exclusives for brands. Additionally, it seems that Kojima was intent on working with Stadia on an exclusive before the potential horror game was shut down. Honestly, someone just needs to let Kojima finish a horror game already - and maybe that will be Xbox.
What we do know is that it's unlikely that Kojima would put a Death Stranding 2 on the Xbox exclusively after releasing the game on PlayStation. So, what could this be? More weird cinematic walking, grotesque horror, or perhaps something new?
