News | Kojima shares photo of work on new project

Death Stranding and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima shares a photo of work on a new project on Twitter.

The photo shows people in a studio. Fans suspect that the person in a white sweater is actor Norman Reedus. Reedus is best known for the series The Walking Dead and also starred in Kojima’s most recent game, Death Stranding. He would also star in Kojima’s canceled horror game, Silent Hills.

In the tweet, Kojima says that he is making changes to a script and is experimenting. However, there are no details about the project.

By the way, Geoff Keighley, the organizer and host of The Game Awards, responded to the tweet with the eyes emoji. While that doesn’t have to mean anything, Keighley and Kojima are known to have a good relationship. Fans therefore hope that the new Kojima project will be unveiled during The Game Awards. That show will be broadcast on the night of December 9 to 10.

Earlier this week it was announced that Kojima Productions has opened a new studio in Los Angeles. This studio focuses on making films and series.
