PS5 Exclusive Abandoned Is Not a Secret Kojima Game, Director Says Rumours 'Weren't Fun'

New PS5 exclusive Abandoned isn't a secret Kojima game, and the director tells IGN the rumours about it weren't fun – but did make him laugh. He also teased a demo for the game.

The story is too old to be commented.

I can see how it would be annoying, but it also gave them some good publicity, I think.

I would be proud, it speaks to the quality of what they have shown that people have made that assumption.

You can bet that the rumor that Microsoft/Xbox is close to signing Kojima for an exclusive game will be announced at E3

Sony has signed that with Kojima for a couple more games I think

I'm pretty sure Kojima will do a Sony game again. For death stranding, Sony helped fund it, let him use the decima engine for free, marketed it for free, and gave him developers to help him make the game as well as some hardware for free. Also, Kojima has been very pro playstation for over a decade. I doubt he just signed on with Xbox just because.

I can see the appeal of Unlimited funding through Gamepass's revenue methods being something Kojima would wan but this just doesnt seem likely, they don't fit together naturally. There were rumours that some at Sony weren't that thrilled by how Death Standing sold and the large investment they had made though weren't there?

It wouldn't really be "just because..." would it? I'm sure it would come with funding, marketing, tools, etc. Same as before.

We know his last project got canceled by somebody, whether or not it was Stadia like the rumors said is still unclear. But he clearly has shopped around projects. I really don't know why he wouldn't be open to signing a deal with anyone.

This idea of platform loyalty doesn't really exist in a reality where you need money to pay your team.

Kojima has worked with Xbox to bring the most of the metal gear titles over. He's willing to work on any platform that allows for him to create his vision.

If this xbox exclusive is true I look forward to seeing what he's going to come up with.

The visuals are impressive from the bit we've seen. This game came out of nowhere, but I'm very interested.
