The secret is in the logo.
Hideo Kojima has given a few snippets of information about what his first game since leaving Konami will be.
In an interview with Famitsu, via Hachima with a translation from Siliconera, Kojima says “I won’t say that it’s an open-world title, but those that enjoy playing today’s AAA titles such as The Division and Uncharted will be able to play it smoothly.”
“When it gets announced, some may think that it’s not as way-out as they had expected, but I’m sure they’ll understand once they play it. The genre is action.”
Kojima was also very cagey about the logo of his new studio, Kojima Productions. “I can’t say yet, but the secret is found in the logo.” IGN spoke to Kojima at DICE this year, and he explained why he hopes to keep the new studio small.
The Metal Gear Solid creator was also asked about VR. Kojima has expressed interest in VR previously, and says he’d “like to make something for it, but we don’t have anyone. I believe VR holds a key to game development.”
