In an interview with Weekly Famitsu, Hideo Kojima revealed that his upcoming PlayStation 4 project is an action game that will appeal to people who enjoy AAA games like The Division and Uncharted:
It’s an amazing game. We’re thinking about everything all at once, including the plot, characters, and game systems. Since certain parts are fairly new, we cannot help but experiment.
While not to say that it’s open-world, users who enjoy today’s AAA games (The Division and Uncharted, etc.) will be able to easily enjoy it. When it is announced, you might think ‘that’s not that outstanding,’ but you’ll understand when you see it and play it. The genre is action.
After teasing that there’s a secret in the Kojima Productions logo (above), Kojima explained that he partnered with Sony Interactive Entertainment on this game because they had faith in him:
Offers came in from all over the world, but these places use a Hollywood system, and I don’t like doing detailed presentations. From there, I wondered who would put their faith in me with just a rough concept, and SIE was who I was looking for. We get quite a lot of freedom and they’re really easy to work with.
He also wants to make something with virtual reality, but at the moment they don’t have anyone to do it. “I think VR holds the key to game development,” Kojima added.
