Hideo Kojima Has New Ideas for A Horror Game; Already Working on His New Project

Death Stranding is not yet available for the general public, but that does not stop Hideo Kojima from thinking about the future, and it seems that he is already working on his next game in some way.

According to the creator of Metal Gear and Death Stranding, Hideo Kojima has multiple ideas that he could follow, including some ideas for a horror game. Speaking to Rocket Beans Gaming, Kojima revealed that he doesn’t want to stop making games, but he also has an interest in creating movies that he can explore in the future.

“I don’t want to stop making games,” Kojima said when asked about doing more than games. “But I want to create something like a short film or movie in-between. But I’m kind of working on the next project, so it’s really difficult to focus on other mediums, but of course, I really am interested.”

The father of the Metal Gear Solid saga is one of the most respected in the video game industry for his particular creative vision in which he handles new game concepts, such as the so-called social strand game, Death Stranding, so it would be very interesting to see how he addresses the horror genre after the failed project of P.T. Silent Hills.

“I want to do a horror game one day, yes of course. I have some new ideas that I think kind of get out there. But I don’t know when. I’ll have to think about when I bring this out,” Kojima continued. “Horror, when it comes to movies…You can kind of close your eyes watching a really fearful thing. Games are different than movies. If you close your eyes in a movie you can make it go away and the movie continues, but in games, it’s interactive. You have to move forward yourself,” Kojima concluded.

Recall that Death Stranding will be available on November 8 for PlayStation 4 and early summer next year 2020 on PC.
