Hideo Kojima is working on something, although at the time of writing it is unclear whether it is Death Stranding 2 or an elusive new horror game. The Japanese developer seems to be teasing an announcement of his upcoming game for Gamescom 2022. Check out all the details below.
Hideo Kojima Teasing Announcement of Upcoming Game for Gamescom
The sequel to Death Stranding has never been confirmed yet, although there has been a lot of talk about it in recent months. To let it slip was the actor Norman Reedus, the protagonist of the first game, who hinted that Kojima Productions would be working on a “second” chapter.
But not only that: a few weeks ago it also emerged that an alleged horror game called Overdose would be in the works, although even in this case there is no confirmation of the title yet. Apparently, however, the reveal could really be imminent.
According to an image of his video editing software shared on Twitter, Kojima may want to reveal his next project this month of August, more precisely at Gamescom 2022. In the same post on Twitter, Hideo Kojima has indeed announced that he has temporarily finished editing something, probably a trailer for his next and highly anticipated project.
Given that Gamescom will start on August 23, 2022, it is likely that the title will be present at the event, perhaps with an official teaser that reveals at least the official name of his next game.

Fans will remember that a leaker named ‘eXtas1s’ previously released the logo for what appears to be Hideo Kojima’s next project, titled Overdose. The leaker has also revealed that Margaret Qualley will be the protagonist of the game, although for now, everything is to be considered only an indiscretion.
From what we know Kojima Productions would be working on two new games, and this horror game together with the eventual Death Stranding 2 could complete the whole picture.
