Joe from Gamers FTW writes about Hideo Kojima, and whether what's been happening over the past few months will have any effect on what he has planned next, or whether it will be something completely different.
This world tour that's he's been on is bizarre. I'm happy he's enjoying his time with Sony though.. it seems like an environment he's going to be comfortable in, and be able to express himself.
He is meeting up with all sorts of folks trying to field ideas for his next title. And, he travels with Mark because he is both his friend and his translator.
DEMO, Kojima, make a DEMO, release date 2016.
The complete polar opposite of konami. They wouldn't let him go to an award show, Sony take him to every studio they own. he will definitely be more comfortable with Sony.
I wonder if he took up crytek on their offer. I know they invited him to visit, but I didn't hear anything about whether he and Cerny did or not.
One thing: Kojima know Sony a long time.
@twoforce OK, don't see what that has to do with him visiting crytek.
They want to invite him that for sure.
We'll know when the PS5 comes out. This guy takes his time and makes quality games, so I wouldn't expect a game this generation.
They said it would be a PS4 game. So I'm guessing at the end of the systems life.
2019, 2020 at the latest. He usually needs 3-5 years for each game he makes. We'll see.
It probably depends wether or not he'll make a new engine for his game. If he does there is almost no chance that it comes out this gen. If he however decides to use an already existing engine I can see it coming out late in the PS4s life cycle. At this point it's hard to say cause we don't know when Sony is planning to transition into next gen (my guess would be 2019 the earliest). It might actually be a smart move to aim for Kojima's game to be a PS5 launch title.
In my opinion it'll be an extremely short life cycle for consoles. We're in 2016, my guess would be new consoles by 2019. Some could depend on what the Nintendo NX actually is and what it's capable of. I just think back to how long he takes between games and don't see how he could have anything out before that time. I mean, he's gathering ideas now, he might not even start until late this year or early next.
PS4 release doesn't mean PS5..
They wanted to hype people, get them excited. Could be cross-gen even. Just because they say PS4, doesn't really mean 100% certainty. Many, many games have proven this.
In other words, you and your ilk have no idea, but you're hoping hard it's not. Does this game not appearing on Xbox stimulate your fantasies this hard?
I don't follow what you're trying to convey here? I own a PS4 and like Kojima's games, as stated in my posts. I just don't think he'll be able to get a game shipped this generation with it likely being a quicker one. Didn't mention Xbox or anything related to Xbox in any post here friend.
"BigGamersSmallTalk" is an embarrassing therapy session YouTube podcast populated by some of the most ridiculous individuals out there making up lies, excuses, spin and propaganda to further the one agenda they collectively promote. Unless you've simply stolen their name and logo and don't represent them, I don't have a problem believing you share their damaged perspective.
A PS5 game that costs over $100 million to produce.
Really ? Trolling ? You troll us and we troll you back. This is why console war never end because of you. Your negative towards to Sony are very noticeable and caused people in gaming community hate your gut. You make Xbox fans look bad for a lot of reasons. I do know PS community have some serious problem, but they dealt with it quickly. I have my high respect to MS and Nintendo unlike you. And Kojima, he will take his time to make his game. I know it take time for him to release the game, but at least he is not rushing it.
His games are notoriously expensive and have huge developmental cycles and me Stating an absolute fact is fan boyish? Cry to someone else.
You didn't state any facts that reflect on Kojima-san's latest affiliation with Sony. You are stating something that reflects his time under Konami, who he is now well and truly rid of. So basically, you made up a hopeful scenario for yourself. His development cycles are not "notoriously" huge. There was 3 years between MGS1, MGS2 and MGS3, each. 3.5 years between MSG3 and MGS4. 2 years between MGS4 and Peace Walker. He also worked on and released two Zone of the Enders games whilst working on MGS2 & MGS3. You should be sensible enough to know that is an average amount of time. In between the mainline games, he still found time to direct and produce lots of other games as well like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, P.T, various versions of Metal Gear Online, Metal Gear Acid, Portable Ops, and enhanced director's cut versions of his own games. Over the past 20 years he's had a lot on his plate working under Konami. With his new independent studio, he is working on ONE game with plenty of support and resource from Sony Interactive Entertainment. Expect something closer to this: http://i.giphy.com/26tOXUD2... PS4 swansong in 2019 - à la The Last of Us - sounds right.
HAHAH dat giphy...
No idea but it will definitely have deep confusing story and naked women with big bouncy boobs.
One can only hope.
Give them a break, they really deserve one!
A BA ambitious exclusive game
pledging allegiance to sony
Hasn't he done that already?
Nope. He made a deal because he doesn't have the funds to make his first game. If that game is successful he will star producing multiplatform titles. Alot of developers do this so it isn't a big surprise.
@MasterCornholio Yep, of course, but I meant I reckon that this is the beginning of a beautiful, and long term relationship between Kojima and Sony. Sony will do their utmost to tie him to PlayStation for a while yet :)
I'm intrigued by the idea that he does something completely and utterly different. Female protagonist wearing a thick winter coat, no story-line and bombastic gameplay? Nope, cannot see it.
The movie business with Sony Pictures
A masterpiece whatever the genre is.
Whatever masterpiece is next, is coming first to PlayStation and then PC. Konami is not there anymore to force Hideo to release their games on Xbox.
Honestly, there's a very big chance that other future projects from him may never even see the light of day on Xbox platforms based on everything that's going on between him and Sony right now. Sony acquiring his studio is VERY likely to happen at this point.
This game-making icon should take his time to produce his next masterpiece. Let him enjoy his holiday tour while he can.
Hopefully something different, that he couldn't create while Konami had him hooked on Metal Gear. I'm interested to see what ideas he's had, just look at P.T., how vastly different it was to what we'd expect from the Silent Hill franchise. It's been a long while since I've played a scary game, he's a smart man.
Early retirment by the sound of it. Haha sorry had to say it. The dude sure travels a lot.
