The game itself is something of a mystery at this point, with only vague clues listed on the Kojima Productions careers pages. There are mentions of 3D model production for “weapons, gadgets, vehicles, mechas”, and desired experience with “Event control system[s] in RPG”, but there are very few specifics beyond that.
Kojima himself has repeatedly hinted at (and scuppered the idea of) potential new games to follow Death Stranding, revealing that he’s been watching scary movies to inspire a new horror game, quashed rumours that he was making a new Silent Hill game, and potentially teased a Death Stranding sequel. Last we heard, he was planning a new game after a ‘big project’ was scrapped.
